What We Have Enjoyed In October

**This post may contain affiliate links.

October was gone in a flash. I now have a 6 month old and a 32 month old on my hands. Weaning began, the whole house has had numerous colds. the baby had an ear infection. We went on some gorgeous Autumn walks around where we live, attended pumpkin and Halloween parties. October was just a busy month for us. I’m hoping to keep up with a monthly round up post of what we have enjoyed the previous month, starting of course with what we have enjoyed in October.

My two favourite photos I took were these. I couldn’t decide on just the the one!

Moving onto a few of the new things we’ve been trying out this month.

Del Monte’s Squeezie’s

Squeezie is, quite simply, the easy way to ensure children are receiving the nutritious benefits their five-a-day. Del Monte’s delicious snack range is made from 100% fruit, containing no added sugar or artificial ingredients and are available in 3 tasty flavours: Apple Strawberry & Banana, Apple Strawberry & Blueberry, and Apple & Mango.

These are wonderfully fruity if I say so myself. Great for snack time!

Child’s Farm

We are a huge fan of the Child’s Farm products and we were pleased to be one of the first to try out this amazing smelling 2 in 1 hair (shampoo and conditioner) in Rhubarb and Custard. Yes it does smell like the sweets! The girls hair was smelling so sweet after and I tried it on my own as well!

You can find it at Tesco or online at Child’s Farm

Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain

I’ve been a huge fan of Kellogg’s Nutri- Grain bars for years, and now they have had a recipe upgrade and a new packaging design. I must say they are very delicious with more filling. They are great for mum’s needing an energy boost. Also a snack for the kid’s lunches.

Available in all good supermarkets.
