Frubes Challenge for Petite Filous Frubes and BritMums

Its is just the first day of the Half Term and the boys have happily been tucking into their Angry Birds Frubes.  Over the weekend I rearranged the fridge so they were able to grab their own healthy snacks, so far it's been success.  A clear topped container of Petits Filous Frubes and Frube Pouches, and a container of fruit.  Even the husband has been dipping in, by Wednesday I'll have to replenish our stock!  Good thing I popped them into the basket for my online shop already!

My new fridge system blog post coming soon...

The two youngest boys were both born with a vitamin D deficiency which, when they were babies, we corrected  with trips to Barbados!  See our old travel post >>>here.  Unfortunately that can't always be our default, so, we look to other things to maintain healthy levels of in-between trips.

Petite Filous Frubes has added Calcium and Vitamin D.

Why Vitamin D is important
Vitamin D is a group of fat-soluble prohormones, the two major forms of which are vitamin D2 (or ergocalciferol) and vitamin D3 (or cholecalciferol). Vitamin D obtained from sun exposure, food, and supplements, is biologically inert and must undergo two hydroxylation reactions to be activated in the body. Calcitriol is the active form of vitamin D found in the body. The term vitamin D also refers to these metabolites and other analogues of these substances.
Without sufficient vitamin D, bones can become thin, brittle, or misshapen. Deficiency can arise from inadequate intake coupled with inadequate sunlight exposure; disorders that limit its absorption; conditions that impair conversion of vitamin D into active metabolites, such as liver or kidney disorders; or, rarely, by a number of hereditary disorders. Vitamin D deficiency results in impaired bone mineralization and leads to bone softening diseases, rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults, and possibly contributes to osteoporosis.

Things we're doing this week

Party, party....

The boys have all been invited to a few parties this week, Louie is dressing as Suicide Squads Joker for his teen party, Zach is in love with werewolves at the moment and Alexander is going to his party as a bag of healthy bones.  The Frubes Challenge couldn't have come at a better time, they have been practicing some serious moves.  Of course Louie has been trying to teach the youngest boys the hottest new Streetdance, The Dab, however, they are more into freestyling to what seems to be a totally different song made up in their heads!!!  They were a little more like the Angry birds dance off on the Frubes website!  They get their skills from Dad! *clears throat, says sarcastically*
Watch them on our Instagram feed >>>>here.

Trick or treat

We always provide treats for our lil visitors and are known for our healthy options, including fresh and dried fruit, and, our little trick of frozen Frubes!  They always go down a treat and we always feel as though we are doing our part to help grow a healthy nation.

Our Annual Family Carving competition

We're at it again, I wonder what we can come up with.  I'm thinking we may use pineapples as well this year, mixing a little caribbean into the tradition!

Conker collecting

A trip down to our closest forest park and a hot chocolate made with cashew milk, my new love, when we finish.

We hope you all have a great Half Term week, let us know what you are doing.  Can you Dab?  Perhaps Louie could show you how!  Let us know n the comments box below and don't forget to subscribe, its FREE!!!
