    Let the children help out from as early an age as possible with the cooking and cleaning. It doesn’t as a shock to them when they’re older.

    Get as much fresh air as you can, even on colder days. Drink plenty of water, its not only good for you, but drinking a glass before a meal, stops you over eating, as it fills you up more x

    When teens start to test the boundaries be firm but fair – if you think they are ready for that trip into town without you set rules, but make sure they know if the rules are broken they will not be allowed to do so again

    Get children interested in cooking, with helping to make food, it not only teaches them how to cook but about making healthier choices. My little girl loves to try and make the food look ‘pretty’ with adding different colour ingredient. Great way to get children to eat healthy

    Prepare clothes, packed lunches and anything needed for school activities the night before, the next morning will be so much easier.

    No matter what you’re doing, try to make it as fun and engaging as possible.

    I raised two very un-fussy eaters by involving them in the cooking process and introducing many different ingredients and healthy food from a very young age. This way they learned about textures and tastes without rejecting them, because it was their own “effort” preparing them 🙂 The only downside is that I cant really get away with fish fingers and chips now to get a quick dinner done, because they don’t enjoy processed foods 😉

    To be kind to others, children can be so cruel to each other and with social media it’s getting worse, I would hate for them ever to be involved in anything like that.

    Create a “LOVE” board, if you have more than one child. Every Day everyone, (including you, the parents) Write something that you love about the other household members & pin it to the board. Then, when they have argument moments, get them to go and read the nice things on the board, that have been written about them.

    This works so well in our house and has cut the fights right down and leaves every one feeling content and happy about the love from the rest f the family x

    First thing a new parent needs to know is that babies don’t read parenting guides! Babies are all different so don’t expect them to be anything like the babies described in manuals. As far as possible just go with the flow and don’t stress about milestones and all the other things babies are supposed to do but that yours doesn’t

    Make eating fruit fun by transforming it into smoothies and frozen ices. Make some for yourself too, with vodka. Just remember which is which!

    Freeze yoghurts (especially those in pouches like Frubes) for tasty and healthy frozen treats – my daughter thinks she is having ice cream!

    Batch cook and freeze meals, it frees me up loads of time and I know there’s always something healthy and tasty in the freezer I can grab. I use my slow cooker a lot.
