What's really in our food?

After popular acclaim from last year's documentary 'What's really in our food?', TV3 commissioned Top Shelf Productions to make 10 half hour series on food.

The series begins this coming Tuesday 24 June 8pm and will cover a number of issues including plastics, fruit and veg, bread, organics, pesticides, additives including aspartame.

This week programme looks at chicken ... Issues like barn raised chickens versus free range - is there any benefit to us, the consumer, in buying free range? are hormones and antibiotics used by chicken farmers?

Crafty heaven

I got very excited about this gem I found this morning...

Published by Sydney based mother & editor, Amber who has young children, the craft ideas are "Montessori-influenced".

I have dozens of DIY/crafty books but none as inspiring as this weekly newsletter and I think just that fact that it will appear in my inbox once a week for inspiration is wonderful.
