From family-friendly festivals and healthy savoury snacks to independent fashion designers and beauty treatments on-demand. Here’s what the My Baba team are loving this week.
A family festival in the city: Citadel
Hotly tipped as London’s ultimate family festival, Citadel has unveiled a new kids and family area for 2019. Meet Peppa Pig, take part in a yoga session with Young Yogis and get hands-on in Roald Dahl-themed creative art workshops. The headliners include Catfish & The Bottlemen, Bastille, and Friendly Fires. Truly an experience for the whole family, London festival Citadel will be taking place in Gunnersbury Park on Sunday 14th July. Children aged 12 and under go free —- what are you waiting for?

Healthy savoury snacks: OddPops
‘Why fry when you can pop?’ was the odd thought that led to the invention of OddPops. The super-simple snacks, from Ella’s Kitchen, have been designed with 4-7-year-olds in mind. A healthier version of crisps, the triangular snacks are low in saturated fat, only use natural flavours and are fewer than 60 calories per pack. Currently available in Moon Cheese and Totally Original, you can pop them in your basket on Ocado now.
