Healthy Active Kids plus Nestle Giveaway


What's on your plate kids? You may remember that my kids were offered to take part in the Healthy Active Kids session which was held by Nestle at the Royal Easter Show. We couldn't say no to kids cooking and it was their first time at the Show. They made these easy Rice Paper Rolls and Yummy Apricot Balls on specially designed plates which shows the kids how much food they put in each section. Too easy.

As a mum I know we are always looking for a fantastic resource which gets kids involved in the kitchen and promotes awareness of what foods your kids should be eating and trying new things. Nestle have teamed up with the Australian Institute of Sport to raise awareness and promote physical activity among primary school age children.

As part of the program, the website www.healthyactivekids.com.au is an interactive resource for parents and teachers, to educate children to lead healthy, active lives.


Recently we made these ANZAC biscuits in honour of our heroes who fought in WWI. All the kids were involved and although it was tricky getting the balls made and a few tears were shed by my son we eventually got these delicious bikkies in the oven. I love, love, love these biscuits and the kids ate them and knew exactly what went into the product.

Most days I have these on the chopping board as part of the school lunch box. It's good to start healthy eating habits early and keep trying instead of going for packaged foods all the time. I really suggest you check out the Healthy Active Kids website as it has resources for families, teachers, and of course kids to start a healthy lifestyle.

We also made these Hazelnut balls as a sweet treat because you can have some sweetness in your life. My 8 yr old daughter enjoyed making these so much and they just include rice bubbles, hazelnut spread, hundreds and thousands and dessicated coconut.

** Now for the extra fun part, the Giveaway: Nestle have kindly provided some packs which includes 2 of the Healthy Kids plates, 2-3 aprons, two adult plates, and some lunch box stickers.

What you need to do: I'd love to see some recipes, pics and things you've done with your kids to promote a healthy active lifestyle. Please e-mail them to me at allthingsmum@hotmail.com and include any links to your own blog if you'd like. We'll choose a winner on 15 May 2015 and send out an e-mail.

Invisible zipper foot - Birch

I thought I might shed some light on the invisible zipper foot. I bought a Birch model from Spotlight and it came in a little plastic bag with four blue shanks and a rolling foot.

First I removed the standard foot from my Janome sewing machine (Sewist 521). I realised I still needed to remove the shank, which is the part that is screwed on, and holds the interchangeable feet. So with one hand holding the screwdriver and one hand holding my daughter, who just had to watch, it popped out disappeared somewhere. NO! I was about to kick myself but luckily I found it in the basket underneath my table. Phew.

The Birch invisible zipper foot comes with one shank already in place so you know how it's suppose to fit. You have to select the correct shank that fits your machine and slide it onto the foot piece.

I just tried each blue part on my machine and made sure it was wide enough to cover the metal leg bit and that I could fit the screw in it's side. Once you find the correct shank slide…

The cutest labels - Hippo Blue

This is my youngest daughter Jacquie. Jacquie is 3, turning 4 very soon and goes to day care once a week. She also has speech therapy once a week and bad mummy packs her food in plastic bags and old lunch boxes and scribbles her name on paper labels. 
Jacquie is very happy today because she's sporting a brand new lunch box which has her name imprinted on it and it was made by Hippo Blue. Jacquie is in dire need of special name labels and that is where Hippo Blue saved my day and made everything look pretty. Hippo Blue made up a batch of their Vinyl Label Variety pack and I could not be more pleased. I've had other labels before and these ones are quite impressive. Why? well because there's a lot more variety. I like how there are different sizes so I can plaster her name on all her pieces she needs for day care and school.
Did you see those cute footprint stickers? They're shoe stickers. How cool! We also recieved round dots and new square ones which I've never se…

Cooking under pressure

The other day I saw a huge stack of Bellini multifunction cookers in front of Target. Of course the black and sleek packaging and design caught my eye and I stood there having a look at what they were selling. It was an all in one pressure, rice, porridge, cake, steam and slow cooker. It was half price so I really couldn't resist. I plonked it in front of the pram and the toddler walked.
I tried it with rice yesterday and it was fine but wasn't happy about how loud it was as it let out the steam and it spurted rice water over the lid so it doesn't win any gongs in that department. However, I made 15min soy chicken for lunch today so I was really pleased with that. In fact, I don't know how I lived without a pressure cooker for so long! I use to cringe about how it would take me 30mins at least to make a meal and now I can go from frozen to the table in about 25mins. How awesome!
I made this soy chicken using 8 drumsticks, 1/2 cup soy, 1 cup of vegetable stock and set …
