These Are Things The Mykidstime Team Recommends

January 2020 Recommendations

#1. Good Food App


“I was getting into our usual family dinner rut – cooking the same recipes over and over (and getting sick of them) so I decided to try the BBC Good Food App. I love it because I can search by recipe name or ingredient then save them into collections. And each recipe is rated as well which helps you choose.

So far the recipes I have tried have all gone down really well with the family, so I’m delighted. It’s available for both iOS and Android.” – J

#2. Mia & Ben Organic Baby Food

“Trying to raise little veggies, you’ve got to try these out! We recently trialled Mia & Ben organic baby food and it has gone down an absolute treat. Developed by a team of researchers, paediatric dieticians and parents, the little squishy pouches are all goodness with no guilt.

Fridge fresh, full of organic goodness the range comes in three different flavours including Apple & Blueberry and Banana, Mango & Pineapple with no added salt, sugar or additives. We’ve been using them in lunchboxes, on the go and as a dip with cucumber and carrot batons and all the kids adore them.” – K

#3. Ivy Thyme

Ivy Thyme Mykidstime recommends

“This recommendation comes from my Mum and is for all those suffering from colds, flu, congestion and chesty coughs. She swears by it as the best way to clear up a congested chest, nose or head.

Ivy Thyme is an all natural product. It can be used from age 2 years+ and is simply added to water and taken 2 to 3 times daily until symptoms improve. Always consult your GP before trying any new medications”. – M

#4. Trilogy Everything Balm

Mykidstime team recommends - Trilogy Everything Balm

“I’m a bit of a beauty junkie and while I love to try something new, there are always a few products that I just can’t live without. One of them is the Trilogy Everything Balm (available from leading retailers, pharmacies and health food stores nationwide) which does exactly what it says – everything!

I keep one of these little pots in my bag for dabbing on dry skin or dealing with cracked lips, but it can also be rubbed on nails and cuticles, used as a massage oil or even as a nappy rash cream!” – E

#5. Neven Maguire’s Complete Family Cookbook

“There’s nothing like starting the new year with a new set of delicious recipes to try. I recommend Neven Maguire’s Complete Family Cookbook – it is one of my most-used cookbooks, thanks to loads of easy-to-understand and easy-to-make tasty recipes.

The great thing is the contents are broken up into sections making it easy to find new ideas, e.g. 30 Mins Max, Easy Curries, etc. The whole family has loved all the recipes we have tried.” – C
