Win a 3 month supply of Spatone Apple 

You could win a 3 month supply of Spatone Apple.

Iron is a vital mineral during pregnancy, with the developing baby solely depending on its mother's supplies. Still, it's estimated that every year, 35% of pregnant women become iron deficient in their first trimester and 85% will have become iron deficient by their third trimester. Iron deficiency is especially common in women carrying twins, vegetarians or women who are having pregnancies close together. An adult woman needs to absorb between 1.5 - 2mg of iron per day. For a pregnant woman, this can increase to 2 - 4mg in the second trimester and 3 - 6mg in the third trimester. Almost triple the amount!

Spatone Apple is a natural liquid iron supplement to help maintain energy levels. Spatone® water is sourced from the Welsh mountains of Snowdonia National Park - which can help top up your iron levels whilst causing fewer of the unpleasant side effects often experienced with conventional iron supplements. Generally, iron is a very difficult mineral for the body to absorb. However, the iron naturally present in Spatone has been shown to be easily absorbed, with up to 40% bioavailability, compared to 5- 20% from food and other iron supplements.

aden + anais Toddler Bath Towel

I am so pleased to be able to run a competition to give away one of the beautifully soft, incredibly practical and ridiculously stylish toddler towels from aden + anais. I have been using the Jungle Jam Towel with L after his baths for a month or so now and everytime the aden + anais Towel is the one at the top of the pile I'm a happy lady.

For starters it has giraffes on and that is L's most favourite of animals. Then we get into how soft it is, even after many washes it is still as soft and fluffy as it came out of the packet, I wish my towels were like it! It is really absorbent and dries him so well and as the patterns are muslin cloth strips, that are very well stitched in, they are also absorbent unlike many of our other towels where the cute pattern is either rough, doesn't dry or goes stiff and horrid after being washed. I also love the fact it is big enough, how many toddler towels have you got at home that are only big enough for a chubby baby? I think manufacturers often forget that there is a stage between baby and adult that lasts several years and does indeed need to be catered for!

There is nothing about this gorgeous towel I don't like, OK at £28.95 it's definitely at the top of my towel buying price range, but this is the kind of quality that will last and last. 

For your chance to win your choice of towel design from aden + anais simply enter your details into the Rafflecopter app below. Good luck.

I also love that they are 100% biodegradable, just pop them in the bin.

Win a Hamper of Encona Sauces & Marinades

Encona, of Hot Pepper and Sweet Chilli sauce fame, they have recently release a new range of sauces and marinades. Now I'm a bit obsessed with the Sweet Chilli sauce, so if the new range is even half as good we're in for a treat. Anyone tried a cream cheese, cucumber and sweet chilli wrap? Well you should, it is my fave sarnie filling of the summer, just such an amazing combo, yum. 
The new Encona range includes three marinades; Korean BBQ, Moroccan Harissa and Jamaican Jerk and two authentic hot sauces; Peruvian Amarillo Chilli and Smokey Jalapeno.
I know for a fact my husband will love the Jamaican Jerk marinade and I'm really interested in trying the Moroccan Harissa as I wouldn't usually think of using Harissa as a marinade. I'm a bit rubbish at making my own marinades, so love having some already made up in my cupboard, I think they can really mix up a standard evening meal and turn it into something quite special. I love the fact all these marinades are suitable for vegetarians, it means I can coat up my vegetables at the same time as creating whatever meat dish the boys are having, so we all get something yummy and I don't have to go to loads of extra effort. 
I love a good hot sauce as well, mainly because I like my food spicy, tears to your eyes, lip tingling spicy. Husb likes his warm but not so as that his lips tingle and then obviously there is also a toddler to cater for, who although he shares my sweet chilli sauce obsession, is generally not a spicy food fan, hot sauces solve that for us and these sound so tasty! 
If you want to try out the new range, Encona have kindly arranged for one of my readers to win a hamper of goodies, including the full new range and a cute handmade World Map apron. All you need to do is enter your details into the Rafflecopter app below. 
For more information on the new range and the rest of the Encona products head to, check them out on Facebook or send them a tweet @EnconaOfficial

Quizonics Competition 

Quizonics is an extension of ZooBooKoo's successful Storyonics card game format using bright colourful imagery.   This game is a general knowledge multiple choice quiz specifically designed for younger children.  The quiz covers the 'Stuff Our Kids Should Know'.

The player rolls the dice (included with the game) to determine their question.  On hearing the question, the player selects one of the four pictures on the card as the answer.  If they are correct they win the card which equals one point.  If they are lucky that question number may also have a bonus question and the player can score another point.  The player with the most cards/points wins the game. 

The game is great for general knowledge, reinforcement, vocabulary and spelling.  The child may not know the answer without a clue, but they will either recognise the picture or guess from the choices available.  Seeing the word with the picture will build their knowledge as you play.  It's a fun twist on flashcards.  The themes of the cards are very much part of their world.   How good is your child's general knowledge? 

Quizonics is available in two levels: for age 5+ (300 questions) and age 7+ (400 questions) with RRP around £7.50 and I've got one of each level to giveaway, so make sure you enter your details into the appropriate Rafflecopter App below as I have created one for each age group so you know you'll love your prize if you win!Quizonics a fun educational gameQuizonics a fun educational game

Slumberdown Anti-Allergy Bedding Giveaway

The UK is amongst the top three countries to suffer from allergies; around 21 million adults suffer from at least one allergy and around 10 million suffer with multiple allergies. These numbers continue to rise each year. Dust mites are said to cause an allergic reaction to over 80% of asthma sufferers, and have also been linked to eczema and allergic rhinitis.

Over the last 20 years the number of people who suffer with these particular allergies has tripled and studies have shown that dust mites live within bedrooms more than any other room in the home.

Slumberdown have provided some tips for limiting the amount of mites you may have: 

  1. Firstly invest in some Allergy UK Seal approved bedding products; from duvets and pillows to mattress and pillow protectors, this speciality product inhibits the spread of mites as well as preventing bacteria and fungus from growing. Wash all bedding at a minimum of 60 degrees and at least once a week. 
  2. The mites can be found not only in our beds but also in our soft furnishings, carpets and even clothing. Vacuum carpeted floors and soft furnishings regularly, also ensure all clothing is fully dry before bringing it in to the bedroom. For severe allergy sufferers switching to a wooden floor can be beneficial. If children have soft toys these will also need to be washed at 60 degrees or above, if this isn’t possible place them in a plastic bag and out them in the freezer for 48 hours.
  3. Although dust mites are invisible to the naked eye at just 0.03mm long they aren’t something to be ignored. It’s the waste they produce which humans have the reactions to, and they can produce up to 200 times their bodyweight in waste within their lifetime. For a full product range which includes anti allergy, stockists or further sleep tips visit

To help you out Slumberdown have got two Duvets (in any size) to giveaway as well as Anti-Allergy Pillows to go with with each duvet, for your chance to win simply enter your details in the Rafflecopter App below. Slumberdown Anti-Allergy 10.5 togSlumberdown Anti-Allergy 10.5 toga Rafflecopter giveaway

Following success in the US, “Feelings Can Be Friends” (£5.99 Panoma Press) by Gail Maisel, is the new picture and educational book now available in the UK, that aims to help children to identify and understand their emotions and what they feel from day to day.Feelings Can Be FriendsFeelings Can Be Friends

One Month Supply of Nestlé Breakfast Cereals

We all know the saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? In fact, nutritionists recommend that breakfast should provide roughly one quarter of our daily calorie needs, and studies show those who skip breakfast may miss out on important nutrients which they are unlikely to make up during the rest of the day*. To ensure you don’t miss out on breakfast we’re offering you the opportunity to win a month’s supply of Nestlé Cereals, that's  2 boxes of each of the following: Shredded Wheat, Shreddies and Cheerios. Fortified Nestlé Cereals contain at least five vitamins and minerals, and Nestlé Cereals with the green banner are also made with whole grain. And at 24p per bowl (including milk!) they’re a great value way to help you get a good start to the day. With over two dozen different varieties to choose from, your only difficulty will be picking which one to have!

For more information and a fun breakfast quiz head to the Nestlé Nutrition Expedition.

Win a 6 month supply of PLj

PLj Lemon JuicePLj Lemon JuiceJust in time for pancake day I have got a 6 month supply of the fantastic Lemon and Lime Juices from PLj to giveaway, that's 6 whole bottles in a mix of both the Lemon and Lime varieties. PLj are ready to make your pancake day amazing, here are their top tips:

  • Cast it with iron - Using a shallow cast iron frying pan is traditionally the best method for achieving a perfectly round, flat pancake.  While they are heavier than modern non-stick pans – you’ll need to use two hands to toss – cast iron pans distribute heat more evenly to create a better pancake.
  • Whisk, whisk and whisk the pancake mixture – doing so will add air to the batter, creating a lighter and fluffier consistency.
  • Butter up - Always use butter rather than oil in the pan, as it gives a better, creamier flavour.
  • Keep it hot – heat your chosen pan for two to three minutes before adding the butter to the pan.  Once the butter has melted, you can then add your batter mix.
  • Thin and crispy - For a thin, crepe-style pancake, pop two tablespoons of batter mix into the pan and swirl with a spatula to spread evenly around the pan.
  • Time out - Cook for about 30 seconds on each side of the pancake.  Flip at least once, but twice or more will give a better result if you are feeling extra enthusiastic and confident! Enjoy! Drizzle each pancake with PLj Lemon Juice (an easy and convenient alternative to squeezing lemons) and dust with sugar for a traditional favourite.

PLj Lime JuicePLj Lime JuiceIngredients for the perfect pancake (makes 6-8 pancakes in an 18cm pan

110g sifted flour

1 egg

100ml milk and 50ml water

50g butter, for frying

To serve: PLj Lemon Juice and a sprinkling of sugar


Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl.  Make a well in the centre of the mixture and break the egg into it.  Whisk the egg together with the flour, and while continuing to whisk gradually add the milk and water until you have created a smooth batter.

Add 2tbsp of the batter to your hot pan, evenly spread and cook for 30 seconds on each side.  For a traditional taste, add a splash of PLj Lemon Juice, a sprinkle of sugar and enjoy!

An invigorating support to calorie-controlled diets, PLj is a blend of lemon juice and is rich in vitamin C – a 25ml serving contains at least 75% of the recommended daily intake and just 9 kcals – yet is free from all artificial colours, flavours and sweeteners.
