The Lion King movie was my all time favourite movie when I was a child, so I was excited to hear about the new animated series “The Lion Guard” coming to Disney Junior The Channel.  The Lion Guard series is based on the original The Lion King movie, featuring Kion, the son of Simba and Nala. Throughout the series, the young animal team learns how to solve problems and accomplish tasks, while also introducing the array of animals that live in the African Savanna to young viewers. If you’re wondering about the old favourites like Simba, Nala, Timon and Pumba, don’t worry – they’ll be making an appearance too! I love that The Lion King has been made into a series for the next generation of young viewers. My little ones (5 & 3) have been watching the trailers with excitement and can’t wait to watch the series.

Lion Crunch Cookies

If you love the good old fashioned rock cakes, you will love these. The outer cookie has a cornflake crunch, while the inner is a soft, cake-like biscuit. I use these as a lunchbox staple and always have them ready to go in the freezer. You can freeze the dough or the cookies once baked for up to 3 months in an airtight container.
