Homemade Pizza with Miss M

Miss M loves to help out with cooking and baking whenever she can, so when I mentioned that I was making a  homemade roasted vegetable pizza for dinner the other night, she jumped at the chance to assist  mummy in whatever way she could.

She started off by kneading the dough for the pizza base and rolling it out, then was keen to put the toppings on herself.  So in the end I let Miss M take control while I took a little video of her preparing the pizza to go in the oven.  I just love the constant smile on her face as she tackles each stage of the preparation, carefully placing the roasted vegetables in neat little rows one by one, showing her enthusiasm and just how much she is thoroughly enjoying her little pizza making project.

I think it is important to encourage and engage children in the preparation of food as they not only learn about the ingredients that are used and how they are put together but it gives them more of an incentive to eat their dinner and try new foods that they may have been apprehensive about.  And most importantly they gain many valuable new skills that will be used not only in their childhood but throughout the rest of their life.

Here is Miss M in action:

Sudocrem Sunscreen Mousse SPF50 – Review

Having two young children, I am always very cautious when the sun comes out and ensure they are covered head to toe in suncream and protective clothing.  Although we haven’t had many hot sunny days yet this year, I believe they are just a few weeks away in time for our annual family summer holiday!! **wishful thinking**

With kid’s sun protection being one of the top item’s on my list to pack, I was rather conveniently sent the NEW Sudocrem sunscreen mousse to try.  Being specifically aimed at kids and babies I had two volunteers keen to try it out and the sight of a squirty bottle was something Miss M couldn’t wait to get her little fingers on.
