From 100% biodegradable wipes and yummy sugar-free treats to stress-free kids’ style and an alternative Mother’s Day gift, here’s what the My Baba team are loving this week.
YUMMY TREATS: Little Jude’s
We tried some of Little Jude’s delicious milks and lollies for kids. The lollies are made 100% natural ingredients and contain no refined sugar. In fact, they’re 30% lower in sugar than your typical kids’ lollies and below 32kcal per lolly. Little Jude’s have also added chocolate milk and banana milk drinks to its range. The drinks have added vitamin D and calcium and, again like the lollies, contain no refined sugar. They’re super yummy too.

AN ALTERNATIVE MOTHER’S DAY GIFT: support Smile Train
If you can’t decide on a Mother’s Day gift, why not consider donating the money to charity instead? Smile Train, the children’s cleft palette charity, are giving the gift of a smile to children across the world. Children who don’t have access to cleft palette surgery struggle with basic things like eating, speaking, breathing and smiling. A donation to Smile Train can support the medical facilities needed to give children with a cleft the basic abilities that many of us take for granted.
