Health and Beauty week: Five a day

Since I didn't write a post about health and beauty last week I've planned to make this into a Health and Beauty week.

This means that I will write at least three posts this week about health and beauty.

Five a day

I am lucky to be blessed with a daughter who really loves fruit.
Though her big sisters aren’t that much into fruit Nevaeh just loves it.
She even asks for it when she sees it.
She loves grapes the most but she also loves oranges, nectarines, pears, bananas and apples and probably other fruit if you would give it to her. I absolutely love it.
Because as a mum you ofcourse want to feed your kids as well as possible and one of the most important foods are vegetables and fruits.

So a while ago I found this apple slicer in a shop. It’s so really handy to get apple parts. It really takes less time.

(Sorry the pic is missing because my camera broke) I’m also loving the Aldi Super 5 from the past weeks as they have apples and banana’s(and pears and kiwi's) on sale for an amazing 59 cts a pack.
They started this two weeks ago as a Back to School deal I suppose. I so much wanted to stock up so I feel so blessed that they still had the offer the past week. Yay!

I got a couple of packs so I have them for school. Apples stay well for awhile and banana’s go very quick in this house. I eat fruit quite a lot as an alternative to cookies and sweets.

And apple is the only fruit that daughter 1 likes so she gets one for school every day. Daughter 2 likes banana’s and takes one of those to school every day.
DH loves banana’s too and can eat of those per day.
So I’m grateful to the ALDI for making it a bit easier to feed my family well these coming weeks.

Glory to God!

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Mummy, I need your 'pookie'

It’s World Breastfeeding Week from August 1st to August 7th 2013 and this year’s theme is Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers. You can read more about it on The focus is on community support, particularly in the form of peer-to-peer support.
To show support for World Breastfeeding Week, the Irish Parenting Bloggers group is holding a blog march about varied breastfeeding experiences, including experiences with breastfeeding support in Ireland. This inspired me to write a post about breastfeeding as well.

My breast feeding journey
When I was pregnant with my first child, I decided that it would be a great idea to combine breast- and bottle feeding. But in the hospital they convinced me how healthy and important it was to breastfeed exclusively and then I decided to go that road. I got a breast pump to express milk so my baby could get a bottle with breast milk when I was out and about or for the scarce times that I would leave her in the care of h…
