To be fair my hubby doesn't strictly follow slimming world. He kind of does his own thing and is back playing football but he's lost loads of weight and is healthier than I've ever known him to be. All his dinners and evening treats are slimming world style and he loves them as much as I do. Here's to a healthy figure as parents to this little legend! ‍‍

Simmer for 20-30 minutes and then blitz until Smoothe. Unreal! Egg wrap is just two eggs beaten with…
