Following on from yesterday's post, I wanted to share with you some ideas for using pasta as a sandwich alternative in your child's packed lunch. When I first saw the fusilli pasta from Genius I knew that it would work perfectly with so many different recipes and provi...

 Have you tried the new pasta range from Genius? It's seriously good and has the added benefit of being good for your gut, which is really important for those of us suffering from coeliac disease or gluten-intolerance. In case you didn't know, gluten can cause long ter...

I've reached a stage where I am so bored of making lunches, and I know that I am in a convenience based rut of sandwiches paired with a bit of fruit or, if I'm feeling really adventurous, a pitta bread. So over half term I raided the cupboards and knocked up a batch of...

In our house we love any excuse for a pancake, so when Genius asked me to create some recipes using their ready made pancakes I was thrilled. These pancakes are amazingly versatile and we often have them in the cupboard. Think about serving them with fruit (bananas or...

Those of you who follow me on Instagram, or have read one of my articles, will know how important inclusivity is for me. One of the main things for me, as a parent of children who are allergic to gluten, is to ensure that they never feel left out or that they are diffe...

 Halloween starts the run of exciting events that lead up to Christmas. Halloween, Bonfire Night and Christmas are certainly something to celebrate and have a bit of fun, but for children with allergies, this can prove a little tricky! One thing that I am pretty proud...

"But surely such an English classic can't be made without meat?" I hear you cry. Yes it can, and i'd even venture as far to say that you couldn't actually tell it was meat free either, thanks to my new trusty friend Quorn mince. Now, I must be honest here, and admit th...
