Back To School {Local Lunchbox Challenge with Tesco}

I got my first set of homework from school this week. Backing books! Eurghhh! Not my favourite past-time I must admit! The other chore that I don’t relish as a mum, is making up packed lunches every night. It’s so easy to get stuck in a rut and just send the same old same old, day after day. So when Tesco asked if I would like to partake in their Local Lunchbox Challenge, I was keen to see if they had any new ideas. The sent me a hamper full of quality local ingredients, and some recipe ideas. Below you can find the recipes, what I thought, and my top tips!

asda-tickled-pink

Hello hello! Can you believe September is nearly over?The past few weeks have completely run away with me! I have some things to share with you though, so grab a cuppa, and read on! Asda asked if I would let you know about their Tickled Pink Products in support of Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now this October. It’s such a good cause of course I agreed. Asda’s Tickled Pink campaign, part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month is now in its 20th year. Every product sold includes a donation to the appeal. They have some really cute items, but if pom pom socks and pyjamas aren’t really your thing then look for the logo when buying your coca cola and crumpets. That way you can be sure some money is going to charity.
