The base ingredient for our pizzas is always grated vegetables, such as zucchini, pumpkin or carrot. A great way to 'hide' veggies from the kids!

My mum's parents died within four weeks of each other when I was pregnant with DD. I wasn't able to fly back for the deathbeds or the funerals due to issues with pregnancy. I was very close to my Grandma, and she had told me many times I could have her lovely (to me - most thought it cluncky and ugl...

Sorry to take this OT, but I'm curious to know more about those whose kinders/schools have 'rules' about what foods you can and can't bring. I've only ever heard of no-nut rules before (yes I'm very sheltered :lol: ) Are the rules actually rules or are they guidelines? Are they actually put together...

Our kindy is very strict with food but it annoys me a small homemade wholemeal muffin is frowned upon but yogurt is allowed. If anyone has ever made yogurt at home they will know how much sugar you need to put in to make it taste like those packaged tubs of yogurt. I see kids eating those rice crac...

Most principals welcome suggestions and input from parents. Perhaps do some research first so you can present your suggestions clearly so they could be better received. Depending on the size of your school, it may depend on 'extra' talents of existing staff as to what non-core subjects are offered. ...

Ari's mum what a lovely story :smt050 Since joining ABA over seven years ago, I've had two major house moves, including one interstate, and both times ABA has been my major source of support and of new friendships, especially as I live in isolated areas.

I wonder if it could be related to your pregnancy? I don't know much about it, but sometimes skin problems can flare up at this time. I developed skin tags on my breasts during both pregnancies, and I know some mums get quite bad dry itchy skin at this time. If you're not feeding, perhaps some moist...

If I'm making a roast dinner, I just chuck them in like other root veggies, but depending on size, will cook them for up to 2 hours (so in at the same time as the meat) and always cook them whole. If I was cooking them on their own, I just clean them, then place them directly on the oven racks, turn...

Hmm do you mean at the base of your actual nipple or the edge of your areola? Have you had any dermatitis or exzema before? Have you had any sun exposure on your breasts lately? Anything which could have caused trauma to that area so dead skin could be flaking off? Does it hurt or itch? Chatting to ...

PMDD

Anyone had experience with this? I think I've finally found out what's wrong with me...

PMDD = Pre menstrual Dysphoric Disorder

I'm not entirely sure where to go with this. It's sort of good to have a 'label', though.
