Meal Planning Monday: 25th January 2016

Last week was so busy we forgot to post our Meal Planning Monday plan! We are on the ball this week.

The stuffed butternut squash on our last meal plan when down a treat. We made a ragu using quorn mince and loads of veg. The butternut squash was cut in half and roasted for about 35 m minutes and then stuffed and cooked for a further 10 minutes. It was so good like a big jacket potato. We shall be making it again!

Introducing SquidKids

SquidKids, a London design brand established since 2008, create fully waterproof rainwear with a twist – when wet, white sections of the design magically transform into brightly coloured pictures.


SquidKids use only the softest cotton and Oeko-Tex 100 dyes are hand printed onto the material. The company founders, Viviane (Swiss) and Emma-Jayne (British) studied product design at the London College of Fashion and have previously worked for fashion houses such as Chloé, so quality and functionality is taken extremely seriously.

They are often asked where they get their inspiration from. The answer is simple, they were fed up by the rainy weather in England and wanted to bring a bit of fun and colour into little lives.

Since then the brand has gone from strength to strength. In 2015 they have won the best ‘Baby and child product of the year’ award in the United Kingdom.

The design-duo hope you love the collection of rain jackets, wellies, brollies and drawstring bags as much as they do!

You can find their amazing range at Kids One Stop Shop.
