Originally we had planned to spend the Easter long weekend in Melbourne, visiting family and enjoying all that is on offer in this big Australian city that I know so little about. But with kids there are always unexpected developments so we had to pass on exploring Melbourne, for now that is. I don’t know much about Melbourne so it is hard for me to know where to find the best kids friendly spots, luckily there is the Little Eats website to help me find my way.

Little Eats is a fantastic way to discover the best baby, toddler and child friendly cafes in Melbourne. Mum of two Jemma puts some of Melbourne’s hippest hot spots under the loop to test them for all the things that make them family friendly. From highchairs and changing facilities to easy pram access and kids menus and from the kid-friendliness of the staff and play areas to activities, toys and entertainment and of course prices and opening hours, Jemma knows exactly what to look for so if a place gets her tick of approval you know you are in for a real treat.

Cafe Secrets Melbourne is a deck of 52 cards featuring 52 of Jemma’s favourite child friendly cafes, one for every week of the year. All cafes have been road-tested and approved by the Little Eats family and are suitable spots for cafe culture loving little ones. Priced at just $9.95 this compact deck of cards is a must-have for modern Melbourne parents who enjoy going out with kids and a great gift suggestion for new parents too.

More and more parents are trying to make eco friendly choices which is absolutely fantastic, it is encouraging to see how many people have started using reusable water bottles but of course you can’t use them for your daily dose of coffee. You grab your first one at the petrol station, number two in the office canteen and number three during your lunch break at the cafe, all those paper cups add up! Luckily there is hope for all the coffee addicts out there, you can enjoy your caffeine shot the green way by using the KeepCup.

The KeepCup ticks all the boxes: it is reusable (so eco friendly), it is BPA free and non-toxic (so safe), it is barista standard (standard takeaway size and perfect fit for most espresso machines) and it is dishwasher safe, microwaveable and splash proof. Use it at home, in your car or your pram and at your favourite cafe, once you have discovered the KeepCup it will go with you wherever you go.

The cool thing about KeepCup is that you can design your very own custom KeepCup, because eco-friendly and reusable does not have to be boring. You can pick your ideal size (extra small, small, medium or large) and select your favourite colours from a huge colour palette. Keep it simple or combine a rainbow of colours, it is totally up to you so the chances you bump into someone else with the same KeepCup are very slim.

Even kids have been spotted with the KeepCup, the extra small (120ml) is a perfect size for little hands and the small opening makes it easy to drink a yummy babychino without spills. Why not design a custom KeepCup for the whole family? You get to drink from these fabulous cups and are helping the environment at the same time, I think that is pretty sweet. Prices range from $10.00 (extra small) to $16.00 (large).
