Small changes we’ve made to reduce our kitchen waste

I’ve shared a lot recently about how we’re trying to reduce our use of single use plastics and general kitchen waste on my social media.  We have a long way to go but I’m feeling positive about the changes we’re making so thought I’d share them on here.  They may not be perfect and I know we could do more but it’s a step in the right direction and that’s what matters.

  • Pick n mix pesto pasta for tea tonight! The kids dished up their own portions and chose what they wanted. They definitely ate more because they'd served themselves and had more control over what was on their plate!

  • Lots of people have questioned why I make Harry's packed lunch in the morning and not the night before. I like to do it in the morning while the kids eat breakfast. I feel like it means everything is fresher by the time he eats it and it gives us a great opportunity to talk about the food I'm packing for him and why.  Packing it while he's there also means he can choose his own sandwich shapes or which fruit/veg he wants, meaning he's more likely to eat it.

Anyway, here's today's lunch. 7 more to go x

  • Megan is doing so well at drinking out of a  big girl cup these days and refuses a sippy cup if I offer. I'm tempted to ditch all the sippy cups and just let her use these full time now. What do you think? Am I crazy? She's pretty good at not spilling when she drinks but does sometimes decide on a bit of impromptu water play or puddle making 😕 What would you do? How old was your little one when you completely ditched the sippy cups?
(Meg will be 2 in September x)
