Happy Healthy Tots is a website and service dedicated to our children’s wellbeing through a happy, healthy lifestyle. Happy Healthy Tots provides Wellbeing & Yoga Classes, Nutritional Therapy and Early Years Consultancy for Parents. Class information and bookings are available under Classes and I will be sharing nutritious and delicious recipes and fun activities to do with the little ones, which will boost their learning…and put a smile on their faces (which is the most important part!)
Now a little bit about myself…I am a qualified primary school teacher who ‘accidentally’ ended up teaching very little ones in my first year teaching. I have to admit it, at the time a class of thirty 4 year olds did not appeal to me, to be honest I was petrified. How will I teach them? They can barely put on their coat?! Just in case I was not offered another job I accepted the position with the plan to move back to KS1 or KS2 once I was fully qualified. Well what a blessing in disguise that was! Within a few weeks I was hooked. Learning through play, having such fun with curious and imaginative little people…this was the best job in the world!
The following year I am proud to say we achieved the highest level of development in the borough (I say ‘we’ because I was merely the facilitator for these clever little ones). I was quickly promoted to lead the early years team. Within four years from starting my teaching career Ofsted graded us ‘outstanding’ and I was told that my department was the strongest department in a wonderful and ‘outstanding’ school. An Early Years Ofsted Specialist commented on how my classroom was exactly what an early years classroom should look like…children chatting, laughing, having fun and naturally learning. I had transformed the early years department into a happy, safe and harmonious learning environment, which the children loved and enjoyed being part of. I could not be prouder!
Another proud moment for me was becoming a mother to the most beautiful, colourful and charming little man, Luca, who is quite frankly, a massive bundle of joy (although I’m sure every mother says that about her child). Luca has so far been through an awful lot with severe eczema and numerous allergies. His eczema was so severe he was hospitalized twice; it was the most heartbreaking experience of my life. His skin looked as though he had been burnt from head to toe and there was nothing I could do (I feel uncontrollably emotional just writing this). He developed multiple allergies along the way and this was a very challenging time for our family. When we attended Luca’s first emergency allergy appointment he reacted to every single food they tested him for; dairy, egg, soya, fish, all nuts, seeds and wheat. The dietician’s advice was disappointing; in fact if I followed the advice then this would put my son at risk of becoming deficient in certain nutrients. This is when I took it upon myself to research and learn as much as I could about food, how it affects our bodies and how it can help my son. I took a course in Child Nutrition and Qualified as a Nutritional Therapist. He is now two years old and we are so very pleased to say that we are managing his eczema well and we are now on a mission to help our boy grow out of these allergies. Unfortunately allergies and eczema seem to be on the rise; this is something I have noticed whilst working with children, conversations with professionals within the field and discussions with parents.
I am a strong believer in the importance of food for healing so I will be sharing healthy and nutritious recipes Luca and I love. Although he has multiple allergies I have worked hard to ensure he is having a varied and healthy diet, which I completely share with him and try to make sure, where possible, he is not missing out on fun foods! I have to say I feel I’m eating healthier now than I ever have done!
Adding another proud moment to the list is our second son, Reis. The most smiley, vibrant and joyful baby. He is now 6 months old and with two young boys the time really is going too fast. I am pleased to say he does not suffer from eczema or allergies and I am pretty sure this is down to our new, healthy lifestyle.
When it comes to sensory play it is extremely challenging, and actually quite distressing as a parent, having to limit his exposure to what he can touch. I mean what child doesn’t want to play in the sand pit or stick his hands and feet in muddy puddles? I will include a variety of early years activities, which every child can benefit from.
I am pleased to introduce our Wellbeing & Yoga Classes for children aged between 2-11 years, starting in June. Read more about the benefits of yoga for children.

Client Success Stories
I was very unsure of what foods to give my daughter when I first started weaning her. Seran was so helpful and told me when it was best to introduce things and also gave me tips for different foods I could give her to help provide more variety. She also helped me when I was worried about some dry skin on my daughters legs and recommended a cream to use which cleared it all up within days – thank you!
Thank you so much for everything you have done for our children. The children have quite simply loved you and have loved being in your class. As parents, we too have been delighted that you have taught our children. I don't think any of us could have asked for a better teacher and you have, without a doubt, given our children the best possible start to school life. Thank you.
Thank you so much for all the encouragement and patience you have shown our son. We have seen him grow in confidence in so many areas and it’s credit to your skills.
Thank you for all of your hard work and love you have given to our children – they have flourished under your care.
Thank you for being such a wonderful teacher. Since moving from Asia, her days have been filled with great ideas and times in your very fun and endearing classroom. Thank you very much for opening up a whole new world and helping her be a happy girl. Please continue with passion and power.
Thank you so much for having given our son the gift of reading, and that of reading with pleasure. I had asked that you stretch him, and you have done that well beyond my expectations. We think that you are doing an outstanding job. We can see his progress in numbers too.
Thank you so much for all of your energy and enthusiasm.
