Making Lunchtimes Exciting with Actimel for Kids
So it really is extra special when we get to have 1:1 time with him. On Saturday, we were invited to join the Actimel team at L'Atalier des Chefs at their St Paul's venue to have a go at creating some fun food for kids and to celebrate the launch of the new Actimel for Kids range which are perfect to pop into packed lunches.
The Brilliant Chef with his own foodie blog by the same name as he loves to cook, so this was right up his street. First off I discovered that I can no longer find my way around central London. We managed to get lost doing a journey that at one point of my life I used to do daily!
Funky Lunch website and books. He ran the workshop with help from his fabulous daughter Izzy. We also met big cardboard cutouts of the three new Actimel for Kids characters AC, Ti and Mel.
D made flying saucers from crackers, made sandwich monsters and watched a demo to make toast rockets.
That wasn't the end of our special day out in London though. We headed off to take part in what has become one of our fave things to do in London. In fact. I think we are officially addicted....It was time for yet another trip on the RIB London speedboats. We've been lots of times before which you can read about here, here and here and we hope to go again and again. We love seeing London at high speed on the Thames. It really is thrilling and fun!
We can't wait to try out some of our foodie creations at home and in our packed lunches. We'll also be stocking up on these handy, healthy little drinks that come in perfect 100g bottles in three flavours; Strawberry, Raspberry and Vanilla. And hopefully the kids will stop pinching my Actimel now that they have some of their own. Although I might end up pinching theirs instead...
A huge thank you to Actimel for inviting us to the fabulous Actimel for Kids event with Mark Northeast. Actimel for Kids is available in packs of six, RSP £2.29 and available in supermarkets now. You can find out more about Actimel for Kids here or on the Actimel facebook page.
