Who doesn’t love a good beach day? Whether you are by yourself or with company... friends, family or even a date (we hope it goes well!), there are a few essential things you need to pack to make sure you have a successful and enjoyable day at the beach. This includes sunscreen, plenty of water, some sort of shade, something to keep you busy and, of course, a cooler full of goodies to snack on.
Choosing the right beach snacks will actually be important for the perfect beach day – you should go for snacks that will be able to handle the heat, so this means no chocolatey treats or ice cream, unfortunately (unless you have a cooler). Nobody wants a warm chocolate snack that’s half melted… Stir away from unsealed food which can be easily stolen by seagulls or sweet snacks that can attract bugs and insects.

With over 48,000 meals to serve each day, feeding Olympic Village is not an easy task. This year, however, the COVID-19 restrictions make it even more challenging – no athlete is allowed to leave the village, except for training and competitions. This means that at Tokyo 2020, athletes will only be allowed to eat in the village, unlike in other years, where they were allowed to visit restaurants and sample the local cuisine.
From the 10th to the 18th of July, it’s National Doughnut Week, which is an annual event set up by The Children’s Trust – the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury – where doughnuts are sold to raise money.

You might not think of slow-cooker foods when you think of summer. Slow-cooker foods are often hearty meals that go hand-in-hand with the cold days of winter. However, summer slow-cooker meals will not only free up your day (who wants to be spending hours cooking on a warm summer day?) but will also make sure your kitchen keeps cool as you are not using your oven or stove. So, don’t put away slow-cooker when the weather starts to get warmer and give these recipes a go!
