Danish Strawberries and Podded Peas – Summer's sweetest natural snacks
Come June, there are two Danish snacks that it's imperative you know about as a visitor to Copenhagen: the Danish strawberry and the Danish podded pea. All over the city, little stands pop up selling one or both, and with their arrival, the supermarket vegetable sections become noticeably sweeter. Danish strawberries are, a little like ...

TIPS
Grab a Quick Coffee
If you’re into coffee, you’re into Copenhagen. Coffee. Here. Is. King. Danes can down coffee like it’s going out of fashion, and they’re incredibly serious about the good stuff. Starbucks has never made great strides here and is rarely encountered, instead there are local coffee chains and bakeries – some of which make the grade ...

Souvenirs from Copenhagen – Airport Danish pastries from Lagkagehuset
When I travel to England (or to anywhere else in Europe for that matter) to see family and friends, I always leave the task of buying small gifts for the airport. Firstly, because there’s a packed little branch of Illums Bolighus there, where you can buy all the beautiful Danish Christmas decorations from autumn through ...

Nyhavn – Where to eat and play along the canal
Because it's such a tourist hotspot, eating and drinking in Nyhavn is understandably expensive (an understatement against the backdrop of a city that's already pretty hard on the wallet when it comes to eating out). If you want to sit a while in Nyhavn to soak up the atmosphere, a drink rather than food is ...

Oliver's Garage – Ice cream with Arne Jacobsen in Charlottenlund
Trailing up the coast north of Copenhagen are a string of four white, sandy, couldn't-be-anywhere-else beaches, accessed both by train and by bike. From south to north, Charlottenlund is the third of the four, and it's our favourite east-coast-of-Sjælland beach for the twin reasons that it hosts the super Nordic-looking søbad (sea bath) of minty green pontoons ...

OLUFs Frisklavede Italienske Ispinde – Inventive ice lollies in Østerbro
There are two important things to know about Denmark – truths that exist seemingly in spite of one another. First, it's a country on the cool end of the weather spectrum (and if you're reading this in winter, you may think this an understatement!). Second: ice cream is a Big Deal here. Danes love ice ...

Leckerbaer Pastry Shop – A special sweet stop near Copenhagen's lakes
If a dream of a pastry shop dances around your head – the kind in which sugar and spice and everything nice is baked and shaped, whipped and whirled by hand into perfect sweet somethings – then on a quiet street running parallel to Copenhagen’s lakes, the dream is real. Leckerbaer, surely the world's most ...

It’s World Mental Health Week this week, which is a wonderful opportunity to talk about our children’s mental health and how best to support our kids through their emotional ups and downs. In the research @courtneyadamo did on adolescence for her Tweens & Teens e-course, @intheloop.teens she learned that it is normal for mental health and self-esteem to plummet at the onset of adolescence and puberty. Adolescence is a huge developmental period where children’s brains are being reconstructed, their emotions are supercharged, their bodies are changing and they are charting a path away from their parents, leaving behind the comforts and familiarity of childhood. If you think about it, it would be strange if our tweens and teens didn’t feel confused, anxious and self-critical at some stage in this developmental period. These emotional ups and downs are completely normal. Despite knowing this, it can still be incredibly difficult to see our children sad, anxious or angry. Sometimes their big emotions can make us uncomfortable or want to retreat. So what exactly should we do when we see our children struggling? Link in bio for some recommendations Courtney’s gathered from the research she’s done… #worldmentalhealth
