Stuff we like

Here are some of the products I’ve been discovering that get a big thumbs up from the boys, as well as some useful apps, tools and links.

Food & drink brands:

stdalfour-stawberry-jam-400px_mediumSt Dalfour fruit spreads. Loads of lovely flavours of jam that are made with a high fruit content, rather than added sugar. Great on toast for breakfast or bedtime snack.

Apps:
