Feeding those in need with Piccolo’s One for One campaign

I’m sure if you have a little one, you will have heard about Piccolo.  They are one of my favourite baby food brands.  Oliver absolutely adores their pouches, he happily (and very quickly!) swallows them down.  They introduce your child to big flavours and all their food is really healthy for your little one.  One of my favourite things about Piccolo is that they give back 10% of their profits to charity, which brings me on to why I’m here telling you about them.

This October Piccolo have introduced their ‘One for One’ campaign.  This means that for every Piccolo food pouch you buy until the end of the year, they will donate one directly to a food bank or children’s charity.  They have committed themselves to donating at least 100,000 pouches, which will help feed some of the nations children, who would have otherwise gone hungry this winter.

Cat Gazzoli, Founder of Piccolo, says: “At Piccolo, we have always been passionate about giving back, and that’s why we’re so proud to be launching our One for One campaign. Feeding babies can be stressful at the best of times, which is why we are determined to support those who really do need our help by donating a Piccolo pouch for every pouch bought. We think the work done by these charities is invaluable, so we want to support them however we can.”

You can pick up Piccolo pouches in Waitrose, Ocado, Asda, Morrisons and Boots, along with plenty of other independent retailers across the country.  

To celebrate the start of the One for One campaign I am offering one of you the opportunity to win a months supply of Piccolo pouches. Enter using the widget below, best of luck!

Months Supply of Piccolo Pouches





Thank you to my little boy

I’m sorry the past two weeks I have been a pants mummy. We haven’t been on adventures, we have barely even left the house.  If we have it has been a very brief trip.  The past two weeks you have been mostly educated by CBeebies and Paw Patrol with the occasional splash of Thomas and Friends.  Thank goodness for super daddy, wonderful granny and your fantastic childminder, who have given you that much needed time out.

The thing is mummy hasn’t been feeling too well.  Two bugs back to back have left me drained, I barely had the energy to lift myself out of bed, let alone run around after you.  The first bug left me energy depleted, I literally couldn’t lift you up onto our bed.  Thank god for daddy who was around to help keep you entertained, I don’t know what I would have done without him.

But you have truly been a star.  When I was being so sick, you happily sat in bed with me and watched your mindless cartoons whilst I felt nauseous at every smell and every taste.  You snuggled up to me and kept me company, keeping my spirits up when I otherwise felt awful.  You napped alongside me and did everything perfectly.  When you came back from the childminders you instantly ran in the house and came up to see me in bed, shouting ‘mama’ until you reached me.

You’ve been so good and caring, and for that I am thankful.  We must be doing something right to have such a kind loving little boy like you!  I promise now that I am feeling better, normal service will resume and we will have plenty of adventures to make up for the ones we missed!
