I am the creator of Wild Flours, a website where I share inspiration to encourage parents to cook wholesome foods with their children using fresh seasonal ingredients. I am a trained primary school teacher living in Scotland with my two young children and Dutch husband. I am passionate about cooking with children and sharing the love of food with them. As well as writing my own recipes for my website, I regularly contribute to family lifestyle blogs covering the topic of food and reviewing food products and cookery books. I am currently planning a healthy cookbook for young children and continue to teach cooking to young children in school.
