"Here's what happened when I tried to feed my toddler like Gwyneth."

Feeding toddlers is a daily drama, isn’t it? Do you make the effort to cook something fancy and risk them throwing it on the floor while you cry into your Pinot Gris (or 11th coffee?), or do you just dish up some scrambled egg and toast and say ‘job well done’?

The other day while sifting through some inbox life-admin I came across an email I was about to hit ‘delete’ on when I thought perhaps I was being unfair. Most of you will be familiar with Gwyneth Paltrow (or GP as she is known among super fans) and her ‘Goop’ lifestyle website which offers up inspirational ideas for cooking, home décor, wellbeing, beauty and travel.

She has received a fair bit of flak over the years for some of her wackier ideas involving steam-cleaning your uterus, but her glossy recipe books sell many thousands of copies globally, so who am I to judge?
