The BigBabyBelly family never quite bought the trusty health visitor advice on encouraging me to eat the same food as them mealtimes from the age of 12 months. It’s not a case of me not wanting to eat their food, (MA-MA thinks I don’t know that rice cakes are not as tasty as the crisps they eat… Continue reading Wonderful Jamie and his Moroccan Chicken Kebabs
Our quest to find new breakfast options has become ever more pressing as I recently decided that I have to feed myself at all times, including when porridge is on the menu. This means that MA-MA either lets me spoon 1% of my Ready Brek into my mouth and the remaining 99% on my face/the… Continue reading Ice lollies for breakfast? Yes please!
As previously mentioned, MA-MA is a proud half-Egyptian and a strong embracer of everything that entails: love of cats, afternoon siestas and extreme over-packing on holiday. Despite being the most English man alive, Dadada loves his warm Egyptian in-laws and has embraced Middle Eastern culture, especially the tasty food.

To everyone else, especially her parents and Dadada,… Continue reading Friday morning breakfast challenge: shake-it-up scrambled eggs
Our weekday mornings follow an exact routine. MA-MA walks into my room at 7.15am where she finds me standing up in my cot with my little arms stretched out desperately reaching for her to give me….my milk. Yes, after 12+ hours of fasting, the only thing I’m interested in is eating, and woe betide anyone who… Continue reading Friday morning breakfast challenge: 2 ingredient pancakes
Did you know that MA-MA is half-Egyptian? I’d be surprised if not because she likes to tell EVERYONE. She slips it into conversation and when whoever she’s talking to expresses disbelief (she’s pretty pale) she comes out with a few well rehearsed phrases in Arabic and everyone goes crazy at how clever and exotic she… Continue reading Noha’s scrumdiddlyumptious polenta chips
