Breakfast club shocker…adding veggies at breakfast!!

Yes! We said vegetables. Next week we’ll be talking about fruit which is pretty safe territory when it comes to breakfast but this week we’re shaking things up a little and looking at how to get more of our 5-a-day (or even 7-a-day!) portions of vegetables in nice and early. In Western cultures we’re very […]

It’s World Vegetarian Day so we’re asking about the benefits of kids going veggie!

A friend recently rang Kalila all a fluster asking what we thought about vegetarian diets for young children? It got our Nutritionist Claire thinking and as today is World Vegetarian day, and with many campaigners promoting vegetarianism for environmental reasons, and for a healthier world, we decided to look into it further. It transpires that […]

Hot on the heels of launching our Kalila breakfast club our first recipe is dedicated to smoked salmon and the amazing benefits of adding omega 3 into your breakfast routine (or any other meal for that matter).

And between them, or should I say us as I include myself in this group, we represent a fairly good cross section of society with many healthy births, some suffering miscarriage, some […]

Mental illness and motherhood

My sister is bi-polar and for as long as I can remember we’ve juggled family life with her recurring episodes of deep depression and manic highs. We’ve lived through the teenage years of drink, drugs and rebellion followed by her 20’s and her first foray into motherhood and now her 30’s with baby number 2. […]
