Blackberry picking and fun with my little girl
Hello everybody, once again im sorry for not writing in a little while, ive been so busy with my little family and my little lady is growing so quickly so ive been cherishing every moment. Recently we went blackberry picking (Eloise's first time) and we made a crumble with it (not a very interesting post to most people) but i thought id share it with you guys and hope that you might do the same as its so great to introduce a healthy balanced lifestyle to children and teach them where food comes from no matter the age.
So Eloise is almost 6 months old and we have been weaning her since about 4 months, she took to it like a duck to water! She LOVES food! Especially olives which i find really strange... anyway on to the blackberry picking, so where i live in Cornwall there is a few places to go however i didnt seam to see as many this year and we were walking with the pushchair so we were limited to how far we could walk without Eloise getting teasy. So we ended up with a small pot full of blackberry's as you can see Eloise is very pleased with the ones she collected. So im not going to lie we did cheat, we used the blackberry's we picked of course, but we had to buy a couple more just because the next day when we were planning on hunting elsewhere it rained all day :( thats Cornwall for you!
I myself am not a huge crumble fan, i hate hot fruit the only one i eat is apple sauce on a roast dinner (weird i know) so Decarlo decided he would take charge and make the crumble and he did a bloody good job too! I wasnt sure if Eloise would like apple and blackberry crumble but she LOVED it! These are the sorts of memories i love making as a family, and for those who said my life is over now ive had a child.... my life has just begun!
So i hope ive inspired you to go outside with your little ones, teach them where food comes from and tuck into a nice crumble at the end of a hard day!
Lots of love
Lydia Anne & Eloise
