I don’t ever calorie count but I am well aware of my daily intake of carbohydrates because a high carb diet causes immediate weight gain around my abdomen. My experience of working with children with diabetes (type 1 and 2) and with women with diabetes in pregnancy, has taught me so much about diet and why calorie counting is pointless and misleading. It also helped me create the 1-2-3 Healthy Eating Approach which I use as a healthy eating tool with children and parents, regardless of whether they have diabetes or not.
In order to reduce the risk of peanut allergy, babies should be given peanuts early – some at four months old (when they are weaning ready).
Sausage rolls are extremely popular as a party food (and everyday snack + addition to lunch) for both children and adults. Here in the UK they are generally made with puff pastry and back home in Denmark, they are made with ordinary white flour. I love both versions. However, I wouldn’t say they are particularly healthy.
I have therefore created a healthier version which still taste awesome despite being really realllyyyy healthy
