Good morning. Welcome back to our weaning series. This week I introduced Harry to meat, in the form of chicken which went down really well.I have been making his food slightly lumpier, getting him uses to textures. I also took the leap and have started to give him more finger food as he turned 7 months last week.I let him have a munch while I'm heating up his puree dinner. You can see below a list of what I have given him so far.

4 Ideas For Saving For Your Child’s Future

Do you know how much raising a child costs in the UK? I was shocked to learn that on average, parents spend close to £230,000 on their first child by the time they are 21. Given that children aren't leaving home until their late twenties, it’s clear that those costs don’t stop for some time afterward.

Looking at this astonishing figure, there’s no doubt that saving for your child’s future has never been more important. I thought I would have a look around for some of the best ideas out there, and share them with you. Here’s what I found – and let me know if you have any more to add!
