Spar sent me an email saying “good moms get it” – I had to laugh. I think what good moms get is that being a good mom is over rated and actually almost impossible to achieve.

Most of us do know how important it is to at least teach our children how to eat well. We don’t always get it right and I have a fussy 8 year old with sensory issues who only eats certain things and won’t even taste anything that doesn’t look or feel right. But we try. We cook the carrots and the beans and we coax and bribe and threaten and then eventually pour some more wine, grab the chocolate and promise ourselves we will try again tomorrow.

Spar has a range of fresh “soil to store” products called Freshline and I was asked to try it out. I was super excited to try this range out and the vouchers arrived just in time for braai day  So off I headed and stocked up on fruit and veg and the most divine loaf of bread straight out of their oven. Really the smells from their bakery section were amazing. Jack and David finished off half the loaf before I could even get a photo.
Their products are reasonably priced and the quality was really good. We made a yummy green salad and potato salad for the braai and Kiara loved the corn on the cob.

I have said it before that I avoid Spar because they are expensive but there fruit and veg really aren’t and their quality really is very good!!

NOW this review came with an awesome something for you, my readers! I have a R300 Spar voucher to give away.

Leave a comment with your recipe (or if you are feeling lazy – a link to it is fine ).

Apparently there are issues commenting – I don’t know why – when I try it works fine but I will keep trying to fix it. So if you can’t comment please email me –
