Today, we're saying a huge "Congratulations!" to Jackie Novels of Meals for Squeals! Last week, she beat more than 1,000 entrants and took home the trophy for 'Innovation in Home Business' at the Guardian Small Business Awards.
Jackie is a local mum who started Meals for Squeals 18-months ago after weaning her twin boys, and has taught hundreds of people to make home-made, tasty and healthy baby food in her own home.

I had the pleasure of reviewing one of Jackie's classes this time last year. Together, we made lamb moussaka, rosemary & garlic soda bread rolls, mushroom risotto, and mackerel pate. All perfect for a then-two year old Scarlett! You can read all about that class HERE (and check out the mouth-watering photos too).
