A day in the life of a multi-tasking parent
By Mandy Mazliah from sneakyveg.com
Thursday 24 May 2018 is Nature’s Finest Multi-Tasking Day, and who could possibly know more about multi-tasking than us busy parents.
Nature’s Finest fruit pots are a great time saver for busy parents. The fruit is ripe and pre-prepared, stored in juice and has no added sugar or weird ingredients.
While my three-year-old son was at nursery one morning recently, I whipped up a batch of prune, banana and almond slices for this week’s after school snacks; made myself a smoothie for a mid-morning snack; prepped some mandarin parfaits for tomorrow’s breakfast AND made a quick salad for my lunch. All of that took under an hour using the Nature’s Finest fruit pots. I also managed to unload and reload the dishwasher, do a load of washing and listen to a radio programme at the same time.
Never say a mum’s life isn’t glamorous!
