Everyone loves a good biscuit

This week has been difficult and wonderful.

Difficult, because Frog has chicken pox and hasn’t been particularly happy about it. And wonderful, because it’s back to school time which means the (self-proclaimed) Northern Love Machine and I swap roles again, with him going out to do his teacher job and me staying at home. Yes it’s back to the juggling of writing while Frog sleeps (which hasn’t been much this week), but at least I actually get to see her, which is a definite bonus.

The chicken pox has put my usually greedy daughter well and truly off her food. She’s even been turning her nose up at the usual favourites of banana and spaghetti bolognaise (not together – that would just be weird).

But the same can’t be said for biscuits.

My diva child has pretty much lived on HiPP Organic apple elephant biscuits this week and HiPP Organic fruit cereal bars. The cereal bars come in two flavours, Peach and Apple and Plum and Apple. The Plum ones seem to be Frog’s favourite.

The biscuits are also rather handy to fend off any chicken pox related meltdowns and seem to go nicely with a cup of warm milk and the beloved magic blanket. We’ve tried them before in fact, and loved them so much we put them in jars for all the babies at the wedding:

The fuit cereal bars have been a welcome accompaniment at breakfast time; the fact they’re GM and Preservative free means I can get away without feeling like a terrible mother for letting my 14 month old have a bar of something sweet with her breakfast.

And they’ve even helped produce a few rare smiles this week:

So if you have a grumpy child, I can highly recommend these snacks from those clever people at HiPP Organic. And guess what? They’ve given me some to give away.

  2. Aw I hope she feels better soon. My middle one is poorly and not eating at the moment so I feel your pain. Glad she’s managing the biscuits though!

    Eliza is 34 weeks (almost 8 months) and I have tweeted too x

  6. My baby is four months, so we’ll be starting solids later this autumn. My other babies (who aren’t babies anymore at 3 & 5) still love Hipp snacks too.

    Tweeted as well.

    Hope everyone’s better soon. Chicken pox isn’t fun (both of my girls have had it twice! so I understand what you’re going through).

  7. My baby girl Lexie will be 1 on 23rd September 🙂

  8. My little girl is 5 months old and has just tried her first foods. It’s all very exciting

    My baby is 17 months and LOVES biscuits!!
