Gluten-free, allergy-friendly and “healthier” sweets; Who can we trust?

Sweets for my sweet..

It is not always easy for children (or adults for that matter) with sensitivities and allergies to feel “normal”. A lot of our sense of belonging stems from participation in activities along with our peers, and food plays a huge role in most social gatherings. For children especially, the sense of identity and self-worth is formed hugely based on belonging, and belonging often comes from being able to do what others do, have what others have, and of course eat the same things their friends eat. Lollies are no exception, and although it may sound silly, sweets do play a big role in children’s social sphere. After all, they are a part of almost every social setting where children are involved.

So how do we give our kids lollies that make them feel included, but at the same time keep them safe? Who can we trust? Take a look at this list..

A coeliac grief..


If only I could make them eat their words! 😉


When you enter any gym or workout facility around the world you’ll probably notice the loud music that’s playing over speakers right away. Music is so common in places where people regularly work out, that a silent gym would likely feel pretty strange.

While most people just think music is there to cover the sounds of workout machines, there are actually other benefits to listening to music while you exercise. By choosing your own music and using ear-buds, you may even get considerably better results from your workout. Read More

Vegan, Low FODMAP, Failsafe and Gluten Free alternative to Honey!

Erykah Badu once said that “Honey isn’t really that good for you”

…and if you are vegan, low FODMAP, allergic, on a Failsafe diet, macrobiotic diet or simply under the age of 12 months, Ms. Badu is quite right. Honey has a lot of health benefits, but as with every other food, these benefits are not universal. Read More
