Win a Grow Your Own Strawberry Plant plus a bundle Of Goodies foods

I am really excited about this weekend, not only is it a bank holiday weekend but I am off work for a week! The Organix Goodies team got in touch with me and let me know about The Goodies explore tour which is coming to Bristol this weekend. As well as this they have a great competition for you to enter to win a Grow Your Own Strawberry Plant and a bundle of Goodies foods.


The explore tour is all about giving parents inspiration to explore with their child – through food, nature, plants or arts and crafts and to give ideas and suggestions on what to do!

Here’s some info about this weekend if you fancy going!

The Goodies explore tour comes to Bristol Food Connections – with food expert Lucy Thomas as special guest. Join us and other little explorers for Bank Holiday weekend fun, 3 – 4 May 2014.

In a new addition to its summer tour dates, the fun packed Goodies explore tour will visit Bristol Food Connections on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 May 2014, 10am – 6pm, at Anchor Square in the heart of the city centre, just in front of @Bristol.

Lucy Thomas, Children’s Food Expert, will make a guest appearance on Saturday, sharing her top tips for making exploring food fun. As author of the book Mange Tout, Lucy has developed a simple philosophy aimed at children aged 18 months – 5 years, to encourage excitement and the desire to explore fruit and vegetables in a fun and sociable environment, without actually asking anyone to eat try or taste anything.

The Goodies explore tour is sponsoring the Family Area at Bristol Food Connections and will be staging five fun activity zones, a chance for kids to really get involved – and for mum to have a pit stop!

  • Let them grow vegetables or flowers! You don’t need a garden to grow small salad veg – they can be grown in pots on the patio or even window sill. Even cress is getting children involved in growing veg. I have four children and they are currently having a competition to see who can grow the tallest sunflower! They got the sunflower seeds from the rabbits food and it was their idea! They are really taking good care of their sunflowers (even talking to them) to get them to grow faster!

  • take them on lots of walks through the country and let them grow herbs and water plants and flowers

  • start small with some cress or sprout sprouts to eat with salads.. than go to so salad leaves, strawberries etc.. simple but effective

  • We bought a fab DK nature book. When we go out we always take this book. It’s fun for children to find out more about the things they are looking at.

  • Make a list of flowers and insects, find them in the garden and tick them off your list 🙂

  • Growing your own produce – strawberries and carrots are always fun….especially when harvesting the carrots, it’s like a little surprise! Go on plenty of walks and have eye-spy lists to encourage children to look around them for various things in the park or gardens.

  • My daughter likes to find bugs, put them in a clear jar and then draws them. she lets them go afterwards though 🙂
