Ahead of the launch of the YG cookbook later this month, I was asked to write an opinion piece on Millennial parenting and food for leading global trend forecaster, The Future Laboratory. The last piece I wrote for them (on whether women change when they become mothers) was the most-read story of the month, so if you liked that one, here's the next in my series of writings on aspects of modern motherhood: modern parenting and food.
Young Gums has been nominated in two categories: Fresh Voices in Food Writing and Food Sharing (social media). How exciting. Fingers crossed until September 2018.
I was interviewed about what changes and what doesn’t, when we have babies. Do you agree?
I was interviewed for the cover story on Spring/Summer 18 issue of the UK’s biggest parenting magazine, Mother & Baby. Check out the nine-page feature on play-led-weaning (= feeling creativity and LOLs, not stress, while teaching your baby to eat).
To celebrate the relaunch of Liberty London's fresh new kids' department, LITTLE LIBERTY, I hosted a sell-out coffee morning at the store, catered by The Detox Kitchen. I talked about modern, healthy baby weaning and creative home cooking to forty new mums and their babies. Part of Project Reset, Liberty London's health and wellness season, it took place alongside Hip + Healthy, Frame, and heaps of iconic health and wellness speakers.
I announced on Christmas morning on Instagram that I’m 20 weeks pregnant with the second Young Gums baby! We’ll meet this one in late May 2018, just before the Young Gums cookbook is launched (so our second weaning adventure at the end of the year…). Thanks for all the lovely messages!

Anyone who has tried to put a meal on the table for a hungry baby will know...it's sometimes (often) kind of (100%) impossible to have them sit patiently while you dart about the kitchen grabbing the bib, spoon, and bowl while heating something up, slicing something else, filling a water cup and washing everyone's hands.
