By Emily My kids’ excitement over this recipe for savory muffins with eggs and greens went through the roof when my 9 year old suggested we name it after the Dr. Seuss classic. Both of my kids love the book, as do I. I especially like Sam’s turning point. After insisting over and over that […]
By Emily The winter break is over but winter is still very much upon us, at least here in the UK. We know that many of you are waking up to frost (or snow) where you live too. Even Michael spotted some frost on the rooftops of Los Angeles recently! My kids have been telling […]

Most kids (and adults) love Nutella, and for good reason: chocolate and hazelnut is an amazing flavor combination. But there’s another reason why Nutella tastes so good and is so popular: it’s full of added sugar. Each 15 gram serving has 8.4 grams (over 2 teaspoons) of sugar, making it over half sugar by weight.

It seems hard to believe, but just 1 Cadbury Creme Egg (UK version) contains 26.5g (over 6.5 teaspoons) of total sugar. Most of this sugar is added sugar and not naturally occurring sugar (lactose) from milk. Take a look at the ingredient list and you will see sugar listed as the first ingredient. And other types of […]
