{Little People Looks} Shoes that aren’t the same – What the?

Shoes are a girl’s best friend and a great way to add some pimpin’ style to any outfit.

The fantastic team at Pimpos Australia have something just a wee bit different to offer.

Unlike your normal shoes these bad-boys are not identical but instead compliment each other.

I know some little ladies that would give their last barbie doll for these shoes!

Happy shopping Nesters!

Bento lunch for you?

These days there is so much pressure on parents to make sure your children eat a well-rounded and balanced diet.

Maybe what has changed is the fact that unlike 20 years ago when a honey sandwich on white bread was the norm, parents are expected to know the latest ‘super foods’, the average quantities of white sugar in processed items and how to cook quinoa. Plus there is the ongoing struggle of fussy children with stubborn tastebuds.

Essential Kids recently put out an interesting concept -> Could Bento Style Lunches be the Key to Health Kids?

“Bento” traditionally originating from Japan contains rice, protein and vegetables arranged in a box shaped container. This trend has slowly been sliding into the western world and is becoming quite a fashionable way to prepare school lunches.

From my experience little birds love choosing food, touching it, helping prepare it. Maybe Bento lunch boxes could be the answer?bentolicious

It is important to remember that according to the NSW Government approximately 60% of children are not eating a sufficient amount of fruit and vegetables everyday.

Are your little birds eating enough fruit and vegetables? Maybe making your children’s food a little more interesting could help?

Here is a graph of the NSW government daily serve recommendations for children:

Age Fruit Vegetables
4-7 1-2 2-4
8-11 1-2 3-5
12-18 3-4 4-9

 

 

 

 

 

Note: One serve of fruit is 150 grams (equal to 1 medium-sized apple; 2 smaller pieces (e.g. apricots); 1 cup of canned or chopped fruit; ½ cup (125ml) 99% unsweetened fruit juice; or 1½ tablespoons dried fruit). One serve of vegetables is 75 grams (equal to ½ cup cooked vegetables; 1 medium potato; 1 cup of salad vegetables; or ½ cup cooked legumes (dried beans, peas or lentils).

Happy healthy eating little Nesters!
