Review: Little Innoscents cleaning range

Review Little Innoscents cleaning rangeUsing natural cleaning products to help keep my home clean and tidy is really important to me.

So when I was recently introduced to Little Innoscents’ new Clean and Green cleaning range while attending the Kids Business bloggers brunch event I was keen to give the products a try in my home.

For some time now, I have been making my own cleaning products to use around the home. Not only do I find this better for my and my family’s health, particularly my asthma, but it’s super budget friendly not having to buy store bought cleaning sprays.

However, on occasions when I do choose to buy cleaning sprays I like to make sure these are as natural as possible.

The Little Innoscents Clean and Green ranges features a multi-purpose spray, dishwashing liquid, laundry liquid and fabric softener.

Review: Putting Sinchies reusable pouches to the test with my family

Review Sinchies - Ever-changing Life of a Mum

With three children who seem to be growing up very quickly, it feels like I’m constantly in the kitchen creating the next meal or snack to fuel their little bodies.

Did I mention they are growing? Like really, really fast! It seems like I have only just fed them when the next cry of “Mum, I’m hungry!” comes from one of their mouths.

I recently had the opportunity to put a fantastic assortment of reusable pouches to the test thanks to Sinchies.

I was so excited to receive the package in the mail and get started on trying out these reusable pouches with my family.

I kindly received the Sinchies Big Kids lunchbox pack (consisting of 5 x 140ml pouches, 5 x 200ml pouches, 5 x sandwich bags, 5 x snack bags and 2 x wrap bags) – pretty much everything I could possibly need to fill my school children’s lunch boxes – as well as a pack of 10 Sinchies Pops (reusable iceblock pouches) and some Sip’n silicone lids for my toddler. Sinchies even provided me with a very handy cleaning brush!

Get your child’s day off to a good start with Sipahh

Get your child's day off to a good start with Sipahh - Ever-changing Life of a Mum

Like any mum, I like to keep a close eye on how much sugar my kids are eating.

Although it can be a tough gig trying to read those food labels to work out just how much sugar is found in your food, with so many products containing hidden added sugars beyond what already naturally occurs in them.

World Health Organisation guidelines recommend that adults and children keep their daily intake of ‘free’ (added plus natural) sugars to less than 10% of their total energy intake to reduce the risk of being overweight, obesity and tooth decay. This equals about 12 teaspoons of sugar a day or less, with every 4g of sugar equalling about 1 teaspoon.

Where possible, it’s important to look for foods that are free from added sugars – there may still be sugar found in the product but none has been added by the manufacturer during processing.

Sipahh straws with packagingRecently, I was offered the opportunity to sample Sipahh flavoured drinking straws and they have been a big hit with my girls and any friend’s children who may have popped over in the last week or two and also tried them out.
