It's hot, it's officially sweltering in the UK at the moment!!

The kids are totally not bothered by eating, I'm constantly getting 'its too hot to eat mummy', and I can't say I blame them!

So, how to get them to eat something?! And more importantly, something good for them!

Callum needs extra nutrients and vitamins because of his restricted diet, so wherever I can get away with it, I make sure there's plenty of fruit and veg on offer.

At the moment we're trialling him with strawberries, and fingers crossed, so far, so good!

I made this fruit smoothie this afternoon, and it went down a storm! Best of all, not only is it packed full of flavour, it's also full of vitamins and nutrients. Happy days!

You will need:

  • 1 punnet of strawberries, washed and hulled (chill in the fridge for 1hr)
  • 2 bananas, peeled and sliced (chill in the fridge for 1hr before preparing)
  • 1 tablespoon clear honey
  • 1 cup of milk (you can use any milk, I use either Oatly or Koko for Callum)

(You can add 1/2 cup of porridge oats if you want to make for breakfast!)


Add all the ingredients to a food processor, and blitz for 2-3 minutes until smooth.

Serve and enjoy!
