Editors Notice Board Hello and welcome to June 2013, I hope the last month of term 2 will be enjoyable for you and your children . As I write I am looking out of my office window and all I can see is rain, clouds one day then sunshine the next day. One could be forgiven for thinking we are in the middle of Spring instead of Autumn. Today I am wearing a jacket and tomorrow I am wearing a T-shirt do you feel like this? As the weather is getting cooler, It might be a great time to visit one of our local Cafes and Restaurants, here are some suggestions. Mythos House, Temple Thai, Spud Bar, La Porchetta, Pappa Rich or any of our local Hotels, The Doncaster Hotel, Cherry Hill Tavern, Templestowe Hotel. It’s also a great time to enrol your children into swimming lessons at Westerfolds Sports Centre or tennis lessons with Slamin Tennis and Fitness or Little Tackers Tennis to help keep them active but please do your enrolments before Term 3 so you can secure a spot for your child. Also Every Thursday you can enjoy a casual swim or play with your children at Westerfolds Aqua Play Mum's and Bub's sessions from 1pm to 3pm there is also a free bonus class during your Aqua Play Session. School holidays are around the corner and its that time when we are all thinking “What can I do with my children?” Nexus Fitness is offering a great program for your children these July school holidays. Don’t Miss Out! I must inform you there is the most gorgeous Children Boutique store that has just opened in Macedon Square Lower Templestowe called MR WOLF offering the latest fashion in childrens clothing up to size 12. Hope you all have a great month and I hope you enjoy our June issue of Your Child in Manningham. Our Gorgeous little Girl on this months Front Cover is 4 month old Keira Stevenson.

Kids Corner Rye, Ricotta & Raspberry Muffins INGREDIENTS 75g butter (unsalted) 175g ricotta 1/3 cup natural sweetener (Xylitol) Teaspoon vanilla essence 3 tablespoons chia seeds (black & white) 2 eggs 2 cups organic rye flour 4 teaspoons baking powder 1/3 cup milk 150g frozen raspberries

METHOD Melt butter in the microwave Whisk together ricotta, butter, chia seeds, sugar and vanilla essence Whisk in two eggs Sift flour over mixture: discard leftover dark rye husk. This will be about half a cup as it is too heavy for baking (original recipe calls for 1.5 cups flour hence my additional half cup of rye to account for the husk that is discarded) Add baking powder and milk. Fold through ricotta mixture. Fold in berries Spoon into muffin tray lined with cases Bake or 5 minutes at 200 degrees Turn oven down to 180 and bake for a further 15 -20 minutes (when fork comes out clean they are ready to eat! Yummy and guilt free! NB: add whatever super berry you like.

Makes 12 Muffins Enjoy! Recipe Sourced by Nexus Fitness.
