MONKEY MINI CHEF travels to Dubai and the Far East…

Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates known for luxury shopping, ultra-modern architecture and a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music. On artificial islands just offshore is Atlantis, The Palm, a resort with water and marine-animal parks.

Amanda will be rustling up some amazing far eastern dishes for the children to taste, and with the practitioners she will be teaching our little mini-chefs all about the wonderful culture in this very exciting part of the world…

Amanda will be cooking up a storm on the 14th June…more details to follow!

Pre-School had a great time being food critics last week. We had some very peculiar faces being pulled when they were tasting all sorts of different fruit and vegetables. The most popular one they enjoyed was Avocado, Peppers and surprisingly Lemon…

1FIRST AID… Where we share tips and advice from St Johns Ambulance with parents

This week we are focusing on : Severe allergic reaction or anaphylactic shock in babies

An allergy is the body’s unexpected reaction to something it has come into contact with. Your baby may be allergic to cow’s milk, plant pollen, animal hair, insect stings or specific drugs. As you wean your baby you may find they are allergic to specific foods, such as fruit, shellfish and nuts.

A severe allergic reaction can develop within just a few seconds. It can be very frightening if your baby has an allergic reaction and it can be life-threatening if not treated quickly.

We asked, you voiced, we listened… It’s happening!
