We are lucky in this house that no body can any allergies or intolerance, however I know that many of you do and of course it is always good to try alternative dieters and healthy eating.
Vita, challenged Bloggers to come up with a breakfast recipe with Vita Coco Coconut Milk Alternative. A smooth and dairy free alternative to milk. It is quite thick unlike some coconut milks therefore can easy be used as a milk substitute in recipes.
I decided to try and make a Breakfast French Toast.
- Using a shallow dish, mash a ripe banana and a small handful of the blueberries with a fork. Add about a pint of Coconut Milk and give it a little whisk.
- Add half a teaspoon of Cinnamon mix in.
- Cut bread into triangles and leave to soak up for about ten mins.
- Add some oil to a pan and allow to heat. Then add the triangles pouring the rest of the mixture on top.
- I added some chopped Mint from the garden which brings out the flavour quite nicely.
- Fry on both sizes until just crispy.
- Finish with a little more cinnamon / mint and serve with some more Blueberries.
Matilda and Daddy loved it. So it was fab to have a go at a new healthy Breakfast. Search the # online and the Vita website for lots more ideas.

When I sore the latest drive with BritMums and Elastoplast, it could not have arrived at a better time for me and Matilda.
Matilda had been chasing pigeons at the park and after several shouts from me to “slow down” and “run on the glass”. She managed to face plant straight on the concrete!
Minor Cuts and bruises are part and parcel of growing up. It seems to be a constant battle of letting her find her feet and having fun at the the same time. Yet always telling her to be careful too. However you cannot wrap them up in bubble-wrap, however temping that might be!
When faced with a “donk” my normal reaction is, where did you hurt, then cuddles then “be brave your a big girl”. I always find best to try not to dwell on it, once you know there is nothing serious.
We were sent some Frozen and Star Wars plasters to try out along with a garden game to have some fun in the garden. Matilda was taken straight way with both sets of plasters. She is a fan of Frozen and Star Wars. Although as Dad likes Star Wars as lot he is allowed to share those according to Matilda!
Elastoplast say “Bumps, cuts, scratches and the tears that come with them are all part of childhood. We’ve been helping parents to comfort their little ones for over 90 years, and we know there’s no substitute like a cuddle from a parent. Healing is about much more than a great plaster. This is a chance to share our experiences of playing outdoors, comforting children and the different approaches to parenting. Together we can raise healthy and happy children!”
Having plasters with fun characters on is a good way to distract. It seems to have made yet another scratch from the garden into an exciting event. Only issue i have now is she wants them all the time, even for the dolly’s and teddies. So I will be buying more before I know it.
We love being out doors as much as possible as are always out in the garden and down the the park. However of course that comes then with hazards and the occasional scratch and bump.
As an additional little note; Matilda was due her Pre-school boosters last week. I have to say she was very brave and playing Doctors is one of her favorite games right now which helped a lot. We even took her Doctors play set with us. Later replacing the nurses cotton wool with one Frozen and one Star Wars plaster on each arm. Which then took us 2 days to persuade Matilda to take off in the bath!
