The Benefits of Outdoor Play – 10 Reasons to promote outdoor play in children

“Fresh Air will help you sleep”

This is something my Gran would say. Now I have kids of my own, I know what she means. It does worry me that we are in a digital world now and the ability to play outdoors is being lost for children. If the digital age doesn’t threaten outdoor play then the blame culture world we live in does. Children can’t do much these days as people are so afraid of being sued. Better safe than sorry eh?

I worry that he is going to get in the habit of eating the wrong foods. I don’t want to force George to eat foods he doesn’t want to eat as I think meal times should be a pleasurable experience. Here is one of my pasta bol recipes for packing veggies into my fussy little toddler. Continue Reading
