    Best Foods to Freeze

    Best Foods to Freeze

    One thing I would highly recommend is to portion out your food before freezing. Not only does it save so much time when figuring out how much you need to defrost, but it also limits the amount of food you waste! The one thing you don't want is for all your hard work in the kitchen to be thrown in the bin. Simply portion your food into portion pots and use labels to note what food is inside and when it was made.

    Introducing Allergenic Foods to Babies

    Introducing Allergenic Foods to Babies

    “Can Féile have nuts when she grows up, Mam?” this question was mooted to me by my eldest guy, Cathal, who at 5 is peanut allergic. It is estimated approx. 5% of Irish children and 3% of Irish adults have food allergies. Egg, milk and Peanuts are the 3 most common, with Peanuts being the most feared among parents. Between 60-80% of children outgrow the egg and milk allergy by the time they are 16. Only up to 20% will outgrow a peanut allergy and 15% a tree nut allergy. No wonder this can strike fear in parents!
