Mummy reviewer series: The Good Little Company sausages

We were recently asked to become Super Tasters for The Good Little Company's range of Great Pork Sausages and we were delighted when our first delicious delivery arrived.

Now that the clocks have turned back and the darker evenings are drawing in the Thrifty household have been enjoying more winter warmers for dinner. So, these sausages came at just the right time!

So, just how good is The Little Good Company?

In a world where sales are king it is important to be able to find companies that make a conscious effort to support vulnerable people and make a positive difference.

The Little Good Company believes that food should be good for you whilst also doing good for others which is why more than 50% of their profits go directly to vulnerable people in developing countries via their two partner charities including The Samburu Trust and The Melanje Orphan Feeding Program.

What makes these sausages special?

As a parent you want to be sure that the food your child is eating is the best it can possibly be with no added nasties. The Good Little Company prides itself on the fact that its sausages contain no added fat or artificial ingredients.

In fact, their skinny sausage range contains less than 3% fat making them a fantastic low syn option if you are following the Slimming World plan - good news!

Made with outdoor bred pork, reduced fat content and gluten free, these sausages can feed the whole family whilst taking dietary requirements into consideration.

The packaging is also clear and concise meaning you can quickly see exactly what the ingredients are when shopping in the supermarket - excellent!

I was really pleased to see on The Good Little Company's Instagram page that the products are often on offer too. I appreciate that the price point of a product, alongside nutritional value, is a very important factor when choosing what to buy and what to leave on the shelf.

First of all, we were amazed at the size of the sausages - they were huge and very filling. They didn't have any tough gristle or stringy skin that some sausages have. I'm pleased to say that the Good Little Company sausages were absolutely packed with flavour too without being overpowering.

We enjoyed our first batch with mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables and charred courgette and we saved our other pack and made Sunday morning sausage sandwiches with lightly fried red onions and fresh granary bread - yum!

How do you eat yours?

If you are looking for delicious, nutritious ways to feed your family whilst also supporting a worthwhile cause then be sure to check out the range on offer from The Little Good Company at Tesco, Sainsbury's, Waitrose, Ocado and Spar. We certainly will!

Normalise breastfeeding: Collab with Stephydraws

As a new Mum you are overwhelmed by a myriad of emotions; Love is by far the biggest one of all. However, feeling vulnerable is also a strong concern for many women and, more often than not, new Mum's are in need of support rather than advice.

In Gloucestershire we are lucky to have access to a fantastic charity which supports many women, including their wider family members, during pregnancy and in particular throughout motherhood.

However you choose to feed your baby, the Gloucestershire Breastfeeding Supporters' Network (GBSN) is there to listen to you, empower your decisions, share information, suggest options and, most importantly, make you a cup of tea!

I recently completed my Peer Supporter Training which was entirely funded by GBSN. My voluntary role as a Peer Supporter for GBSN enables me to support new mothers to help them to feel empowered and supported to make their own decisions in aid of their own breastfeeding journey.

Essential equipment when weaning your baby

Weaning can be worrisome. Like many baby related products, companies use this stage of a baby's life to encourage parents to spend unnecessarily. In a bid to be transparent and help other parents through this tricky time, I've compiled my list of essential equipment that I've found to be useful on our weaning journey so far.

Baby-led weaning or puree?
Before I begin, I just want to say that I feel very strongly that this is a personal choice. Whether you choose to follow baby-led weaning, go down the puree route or do a bit of both it is important that you do what you feel is right for you and your baby.Much like the bottle or breast debate that Mum's find themselves unnecessarily embroiled in, once your baby turns 6 months you will be given all kinds of 'advice'. All that matters is that your baby is fed, happy and healthy.

Plastic bibs
As I have mentioned before, I have found plastic bibs to be really useful during weaning. They are wipe clean, foldable and have…

Thrifty, nifty weaning hacks: 2 weeks in

Thrifty Bubba and I are two weeks into our weaning journey so I wanted to share 8 weaning hacks that I've found useful so far. I have more weaning posts in the pipeline so, if you haven't already, please hit the subscribe button to stay in touch.

1. Don't feel rushed.
As a first time Mummy I definitely felt like I started our weaning journey before I was ready let alone baby! You won't be the first parent to feel like you're forcing your baby to eat when they just aren't ready. If they will only take a couple of mouthfuls before becoming fussy, don't worry. Every new food is a taste adventure for them and when they come to try it again it will feel more familiar. Just like their milk feeds, baby will know if you are feeling stressed and will respond accordingly. Come back to it later.

2. There is no right or wrong.
You know your baby best. If they are interested in you eating at mealtimes, introduce food to them while you're eating too. If it's …
