Quids In magazine is a quarterly guide to money saving ideas, designed for anyone on a low income. The idea is to provide info that people want to read, so they print a glossy read that mixes celeb interviews with easy-to-follow news and advice about money matters.

Foodini Club are chuffed to be contributing cost-saving ways to eat tasty food on a budget (plus giveaways!), and for the Summer edition 2018 also helped to create a shopping guide for 'Doomsday' meal planning included in the magazine and as an extended edition distributed digitally. Could you go a month without shopping for food?

At the start of 2018 we were featured on ITV news in a special report about calorie counting and kids healthy eating.

At Foodini Club we advocate that calorie counting does little to support healthy eating, as different children need different calories depending on many factors like metalobism, physical and mental activity. Calories are a limited way to value health, as they don't reflect the quality of the food being eaten at all. Instead we need to promote balanced eating with less reliance on high-calorie /low nurtition grains and sugars and eat more plants!

Foodini Club held an event in October 2017 in Brighton called Pumpkin Rescue which was all about learning how to carve, cook and eat pumpkin instead of throwing it away. We spent 3 hours with around 30 local children and their parents having fun and making a lot of mess with pumpkin, while cooking 2 tasty recipes - Monster Cookies and Pumplings. By the end the children had eaten plenty of pumpkin, some for the first time!

We were filmed and featured on BBC South East, plus CBBC's Newsround made a video all about the event and featured the recipe for Monster Cookies which was screened on TV around Halloween and on the BBC website.
