Go folic like Kate Middleton...

Apparently, Kate Middleton embarked on a diet that included lots of leafy dark green vegetables like Brussels sprouts and spinach, naturally Rich in Folic Acid in her bid to conceive the royal baby.

For any one that has struggled at the airport departure gate with bags, pushchairs, oh yes, and baby, this is a breath of fresh air…

Being green

Planning a holiday away this year? Some of the chemicals that are common in sunscreens are having a drastic effect on aquatic life. Founder of Green People, Charlotte Vohtz, has teamed up with The Marine Conservation Society to help protect anything living in our seas and will donate 30p from every tube of Adult & Children scent free sun lotion this summer. Green People sun lotion is naturally free from any of the harmful chemicals and they hope to raise awareness of this cause. We'll certainly be buying some. If the sun ever comes out.
