Happy Healthy New Year!

I believe we are in the 3rd week of January and this is my first post for 2014. Oh dear, days go by so fast this month will soon be over. I’ve been really busy with Mommy duties since the holidays, V’s 1st term exam for all his 10 subjects is happening this week, having a child in school brings up parenting levels (& anxiety) a higher notch and believe but it feels like I’m also taking the exam.

 Fruit Platter

MyNappytales family promised that for the year 2014  we will start eating more fruits everyday. Daddy C and I want to be a good example to the kids. A fruit platter now serves a centerpiece of our dining table – since we always see it and available within reach we were able to consume all the fruits (photo above) within 3 days.


Both LittleMiss and LittleMan can sit down and consume a bowl of sweet strawberries while watching movies and so I’ve decided to add another berry to the list – a raspberry.

We bought a good fruit supply at Dubai Fruit and Vegetable market. Quality of fruits sold here are way much better than the one’s sold in the grocery, this is specially true for Rambutan and Mangosteen. We bought all of our stash from Fresh Fruits Company.

  • Strawberry (250g) – 3.50 AED
  • Raspberry – 16 AED
  • SweetCorn (4pcs in 1 pack) – 13 AED
  • 1 bag baby carrots – 4 AED
  • Rambutan – 13.50 AED
  • Mangosteen – 12 AED
  • Mesculin Salad Mix – 7 AED


Happy New Year! Let us all start eating healthy.
