Motherhood is a wonderful thing, isn't it?

Nurturing your children into healthy, happy little humans is what every mother longs for. It's the little things that make up the joy of motherhood, like playing with your children, reading them a bedtime story, and preparing nutritious meals for your little ones <3

However, when you're a busy parent, you need something you can whip up in a jiffy for your kiddos before they start their online classes for the day.

In conjunction with their #KeepingItReal campaign, Lady's Choice recently released their Meaty Spreads. Consisting of a Chicken Spread, and a Tuna Spread, they are chock-full of Omega-3, mmmmm!
