My First Ballet – Swan Lake

I’m extremely excited that ‘My First Ballet’ Swan Lake is back on again and we have tickets!

I was going to see it back in 2015 with my daughter but for one reason or another we couldn’t make it. We did, however, manage to see another show in the ‘My First Ballet’ series the following year, which was Sleeping Beauty!

If you haven’t heard of them before, the My First Ballet’s are created by the English National Ballet and performed by students of the English National Ballet School. Created especially for children as young as three and adapted to an hour in length with a narrator to help young audiences follow the story. My First Ballet is the perfect introduction to the magic of ballet.

Storyline: The magician Rothbart has turned the princess Odette into a swan; only at night can she return to human form. Will Prince Siegfried be able to save her or will he fall for Rothbart’s sorcery?

Featuring choreography by Antonio Castilla, English National Ballet’s Ballet Master and Repetiteur, this shortened version follows the familiar story with Tchaikovsky’s iconic music and will be loved by young ballet enthusiasts.

Since its creation in 2012, over 250,000 people have enjoyed the My First Ballet series.

My First Ballet: Swan Lake opens at The Peacock, London on 29 March 2018 before embarking on a national tour to Churchill Theatre, Bromley (14 & 15 April), New Theatre, Oxford (21 & 22 April), Manchester Opera House (28 & 29 April), The Grand Theatre, Blackpool (05 & 06 May), New Victoria Theatre, Woking (12 & 13 May) and Princess Theatre, Torquay (19 & 20 May).

To coincide with the tour, the English National Ballet will host on-stage creative dance workshop events up and down the Country, aimed to provide a gateway into the world of ballet. Children and their parents/ guardians will have the opportunity to learn extracts from the production with English National Ballet dance artists and get up close to costumes and scenery.

English National Ballet School Summer Performances return this year to New Wimbledon Theatre 6-7 July. Tickets go on sale Monday 23 April.

We can’t wait to watch!

6 Healthy Treats Your Kids Will Love

Children love a tasty snack throughout the day. Unfortunately, most kids’ favourite sweet and savoury treats are filled with saturated fat and sugar, which can quickly result in an unhealthy diet. To ensure your son or daughter creates a healthier, happier body, check out the six healthy treats your kids will love.

Frozen Yoghurt

Frozen yoghurt is one of the healthiest snacks you can give to your children, as it is lower in calories and saturated fat in comparison to other snacks. You can also use different yoghurt flavours to complement your child’s tastes, so it’s the perfect treat to enjoy after dinner or on a hot summer’s day. Learn more about the popular VonShef ice cream maker, which you can use to create mouthwatering frozen yoghurt (or even sorbet!) treats the kids will adore. Plus, it’s also an ice cream maker for days when you’re allowed to treat yourself and your family.

Fruit Smoothies

Are your children reluctant to eat fruit and vegetables? Add some much-needed nutrients into their diet by concocting delicious fruit smoothies your children will beg you to make. You can incorporate a wide variety of fruits to create different flavours, such as bananas, oranges, pineapple and more. You can also use both fresh and frozen fruit, so it’s a great way to sneak some vitamins and fibre into their diet.

Sweet Potato Crisps

Does your son or daughter love to reach for a bag of crisps after school? Cut down on their intake of salt and saturated fat with a healthier, homemade alternative. Sweet potato crisps are simple to make with a little bit of oil and salt. The vegetable is also packed with essential nutrients your children will need to develop a healthy body, such as vitamin C and D. What’s more, you will know exactly how much oil or salt you’ll be adding onto their crisps.

Mango Fruit Rollups

There is nothing but mango in these scrumptious fruit rollups. You simply need to grind four cups of diced mango in a blender or food processor until smooth, before spreading the puree evenly on a pan using a spatula. Once you have done so, bake the rollups for three to four hours (preheated oven at 175ºF), and they’ll be ready to roll once the puree is dry to the touch. Baking times will vary depending on your oven temperature and the thickness of the rollup.

Peanut Butter

What child doesn’t love peanut butter? Pick up natural peanut butter and select a jar with no added sugar or various fats. It is a great source of protein and healthy fats for children, and it’s a versatile ingredient that can complement different foods, such as bananas, apples, wholegrain crackers, toast, and celery. You might even dip a spoon into the jar for yourself!


Cheese is filled with both calcium and protein, so it can be a healthy addition to a child’s diet when enjoyed in moderation. You simply need to ensure it does not feature in every meal or snack. So, monitor their intake of cheese so they can enjoy a delicious snack, which pairs well with apples or carrot sticks.
