From bio-degradable packed lunches and half-term holiday camps to family days out and a festival for mums, here’s what the My Baba team are loving this week.
A festival by mums for mums (and mums-to-be)
Being Mum Festival is a brand new festival taking place in London this October, celebrating and advising on all things mum. From trying to conceive to journeying through pregnancy and beyond, this festival has experts and wellness workshops that cover all aspects of your life pre and post pregnancy. From fitness and childcare to mindfulness and going back to work, Being Fest will deliver the support you need throughout mumhood.

Stylish and safety-proofed
Having a family doesn’t mean your house has to look like a kids’ play barn nor does it have to compromise on safety. Fred Safety is our go-to for home safety essentials, including safety gates, corner protectors and slam stoppers.

Maggie & Rose half-term holiday camps
Sign up for half-day and full-day sessions full of half-term and Halloween fun. The Kensington and Chiswick clubs are open to members and non-members alike for these exciting holiday sessions. In Kensington, the kids can find out what it takes to be the scariest witch in town at School of the Witch and cook up some dastardly delights in the Creepy Kitchen. Chiswick will have your little ones preparing some petrifying pumpkins and exploring the haunted houses where things go bump in the night.

Bio-degradable packed lunches
Awareness around the importance of recycling is certainly on the up, but the sheer amount of rubbish we’re sending to landfill every day is still a huge cause for concern. Little Eco Eats is doing a small but significant bit to help cut your carbon footprint. The innovative catering company provide lunches for parties and school trips that are packaged in 100% compostable or biodegradable materials. Then, rather than throwing anything away, Little Eco Eats will collect everything from you and make sure it’s disposed of responsibly.
