Half Term in Manchester and Win a box of Jammie Dodgers Oaty Bites



So that was half term! I hope those of you with school age kiddos had a lovely week off, I always find it goes so quickly but I think we are all sort of glad to be getting into our normal routines this week. I'm always so torn between wanting us to be together ALL the time and also knowing they have to have their own lives and own friends too ha!


We had such a lovely time on a break 'up North' visiting my sister who is in university in Manchester, this is only second time I've visited and its definitely one of my favourite cities. I'd love to visit again as there is so much I want to explore there.

We're working with Jammie Dodgers Raspberry Oaty Bites in this post who were kind enough to send us a whole box of the delicious snacks to keep us going on our break. As most parents agree the key to a successful outing id to always be well prepared with snacks. We travel by train a lot and literally as soon as we sit in our seats they are asking for lunch, even if its 9am ;)

Whats great about these biscuits is they are made with no artificial colours, flavours, preservatives, artificial sweeteners or hydrogenated fats. They are also suitable for vegetarians (likes us) and contain no GM ingredients. Whats even more brilliant is that both kids thin they are delicious and act like they are the biggest treat whilst I know that they are great wholegrain oat snack packed with fibre and without all the nasties. 


We headed to MOSI (museum of Science and Industry Manchester) which is such a great day out. We actually came here when Wilf was the exact same age as Mabli is now. I knew we could easily spend hours here and both children would get something out of it. If you are planning a trip to the city then I'd definitely recommend it.

Can we just pause for a second to take in how amazing Wilf's face is in this photo? There is a victorian fayre ground in the gardens and they got to spend their tokens on a ride each plus Wilf had his first ever experience of 'hook a duck' and won some lego. I'm pretty sure when I was little you never really won anything on those stalls so we were both pretty chuffed by that outcome!


It was SO cold the few days we were up there that we even ended up walking in the snow at one point but we just loved walking by all the canals and spotting the names on the pretty boats. As you can see Wilf was enjoying another pack on our walk back.


All of us are big fans of the new range from Jammie Dodgers so I'm super pleased to be offering one reader a box of 12 multi packs on the snacks. Each multipack comes with 5 inner packs so thats a lot of Oaty Bites to keep you going. I have to admit both me and Tom are a bit partial to them as well now!

If you don't happen to win then I'd defo recommend you give them a go anyway, you can pick them up for £1.69 per 5 pack at Tesco.  I'd love to know what you think of them and if you're kiddos love them as much as mine.

Thanks to Jammie Dodgers Oatly Bites who sponsored this post.

Rachael Lines said...

Mine dont snack that often, so its more offered to them if I feel they need it.
This is only because when they were little they would ask for snacks all the time, and we had to have some control over it. Its a pretty much a given that they get one on Saturday afternoon, and they have some fruit after school though - so that's maybe why they dont ask to much.

Movies at home always = snacks though.. ^_^
