At the Going Down of the Sun: Love, Loss and Sacrifice in Afghanistan

To all the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice...

AT THE GOING DOWN OF THE SUN honours twenty of those who lost their lives in that war. Through the testimonies of comrades, loved ones, and their private letters and emails home, their stories are made real, from birth until untimely death. They become more than a roll call of names – they are sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, parents and friends

Living in scorching heat on minimal rations, with little sleep, their courage and astonishing durability shines through, along with the unbreakable bonds formed under fire.  A unique and fitting tribute to all the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice.

I Can’t Believe It’s Baby Food!

My aim is to help parents make both cooking and mealtimes as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. It’s all about sharing food that the whole family will love, with your baby in a highchair pulled up to the table. Apart from the first few weeks of weaning, there really is no need to cook twice. In fact, it’s much better that you don’t! Your baby will benefit both nutritionally and developmentally from eating with you; and, if you are not stuck in the kitchen all day preparing endless different meals, you’ll be happier and less frazzled, too.

Your child’s development depends on three key areas of health that are intertwined and are interdependent – these are the Brain, the Immune system and the Gut (BIG). The first thousand days seems to be the critical window to get this essential BIG nutrition trio functioning well, as that is when your baby’s mind, immune-resilience and intestinal health are being primed for the future.
