Sian - Mummy Tips

I love you. xx

Did they speak to you about how the children get hooked on Plumpy Nut and then refuse to eat normal food? It is a vicious circle. xx


It's quite scary how much we take for granted what we have on our plates. We dont really think about the fact that around the world there are children that dont have access to our luxuries.

We really are so very lucky but I think we do all forget that far too much.


It's amazing what you did, I would have been to emotionally weak to see all that.

We do forget how lucky we are all the time! This is the main reason I do Ramadan each year and fast for a month, it really reminds you how we have far too much in our lives and makes you appreciate the life we do have x


Just... wow. We get so caught up in our own little world that the images that we are fed from underdeveloped countries don't make an impact. Thank you for this viewpoint, I really believe in real people getting to experience this and using their voice to change the way we see the world. You are wonderful!


A beautifully written, bittersweet post. Thank you xxx


This is a wonderful post. It's true that it's very easy to watch these things on TV and not really identify with them. They are elsewhere. You've really brought home what it feels like, as a mother, to not be able to feed your child. And if it's made a personal difference to how you view food, then that's an added bonus.


That would change a person. What a trip!


I am so enjoying (not the right word) your trip with you. You are right we have far too much

I know what you mean! Thank you.

Thanks Sian xx

They didn't mention about getting hooked on Plumpy Nut. Probably just as well - that might have finished me off!

Hot Cross Mum

Amazing Rosie. I think these posts are incredible: moving and inspiring.


Wow xx

A Modern Mother

Amazing how a trip can make such a difference!


Very powerful post Rosie. I'm sure you have changed some thinking here with your blog as well.

If I Could Escape

I'm so sorry it's taking me a while to catch up on your blog, but wow, Rosie. This is amazing and powerful post.


a fabulous post i can't imagine the suffering that goes on and just because of a lack of food something that no one should be without xx
