House by John Lewis

| September 22, 2012

There’s a new and exciting range of affordable and stylish homeware at House by John Lewis. This stylish range incorporates a mix of everyday essentials for your home with a modern and uncluttered feel. Designed with the contemporary urban home in mind the House range blends seamlessly into your existing environment.

We love this new range and it fits so well in a home with babies and children. It’s modern, affordable and there’s a delightful selection of colours to brighten your home.

I enjoy cooking hearty and warm meals for my family especially now the weather is changing. The Oven to Tableware dishes will look great in any kitchen and are made from durable stoneware in a striking red finish. They retain heat well and provide a convenient way to serve meals straight from the oven to the table.

Vitamin D

| September 9, 2012

Holland & Barrett – Vitamin D3 (25ug) £7.99 for 100 tablets

As a Nutritional Advisor I recommend eating your way to health and wellbeing through a wide range of wholefoods.

But sometimes it can be more difficult to get the vitamins and minerals you need from food only. A good example is Vitamin D which is required by everyone for healthy bones, immune system health and the maintenance of normal muscle function.

Vitamin D can be absorbed through our skin from the sun but many people in the Northern Hemisphere struggle to maintain the required levels of Vitamin D in this way as our weather is often cloudy, we spend a lot of time indoors due to primarily working in offices and we (sensibly) use sun cream during the summer months.

As we age the body may not convert vitamin D from sunlight as easily. In this case it can be highly beneficial to take Vitamin D supplements to satisfy the increase in the recommended intake.

My husband and I are in our mid 30’s and take Vitamin D3 daily (25µg, one tablet per day) to support the healthy functioning of our immune system and bone health.

Vitabiotics – WellKid Baby & Infant Liquid; Suitable from 3 months to 5 years

I also recommend babies over the age of 3 months have the supplement vitamin and mineral syrup Vitabiotics – WellKid Baby & Infant Liquid.

Government health experts recommend that babies over the age of 6 months supplement the vitamins A, C and D. Vitabiotics – WellKid Baby & Infant Liquid also includes B and E vitamins and the minerals iron and zinc to help safeguard your growing infant’s nutritional intake and for a healthy immune system.

Babies and infants have a high nutrient requirement in relation to their body size to support their rapid physical growth and the development of healthy bones, muscles, blood and the brain.
