Are you wrapped up in confusion when it comes to feeding your tots nut butters and wanted to avoid jars full of palm oil and other nasties? You’re not alone. New mums and founders of all natural nut butters, Nuttery Buttery, Katie and Sarah were so passionate about introrudicng nut butters to their babies early to avoid allergies that they created their very own range.

With each jar is packed with only natural ingredients and no added oils, salt or sugar, Nuttery Buttery has attracted a cult following and we’re firm fans!

Between blending nut butters and devising delicious recipes, we sat down with Katie and Sarah to discover where in London the venture with their little ones for a family bite to eat…
1. I’d like a table for…
Us and our girlfriends. We tend to see our girlfriends quite a bit on our days off but its so nice seeing our girlfriends on a night out where we haven’t got one eye on our children and we can focus on the chat.
2. Early-birds catch the coffee at…
Katie: My local cafe is Blend in Haringey and it is fabulous, great kids menu and they have a selection of toys and books to keep the children occupied.
Sarah: I recently moved to Leytonstone and really love Wild Goose Bakery. The owners are lovely and so accommodating to little ones. They also make a superb chocolate swirl.
3. Best brunch with kids?
Our favourite brunch location is Dishoom, our girls love sharing the sausage naan
4. Children’s menu must-visits
Before having children we used to avoid chain restaurants, but since having the girls they are the perfect place to take your little ones (which we hate to admit). They usually have great value children’s menus and provide crayons and toys, which always makes life so much easier. Our particular fav is Wahaca.
5. Where do you grab a bite with mums en masse?
Sarah: Definitely missing living in Hackney, I loved the The Pavillion Cafe in Victoria Park, there is loads of space and excellent duck action outside which Ivy loves.
Katie: There is a pub opposite Clissold Park, The Clissold Park Tavern that we used to go to a lot, they did a £10 set menu which included unlimited tea and coffee (every sleep deprived parents dream) or there is a cafe on Green Lanes called snug which has a soft play in the back and really nice food and drinks for the little ones and the adults. If anyone knows of a pub with a soft play in NE London, we are all ears?
6. Hidden gem for treating tiny ones?
We both love going to food markets and think it’s the perfect place to graze all afternoon. We started off doing markets and we know how hard it is, so it is always nice to speak to traders and make a few purchases.
Katie: Another place where we took Violet for her first birthday was going to a fruit picking farm up in Enfield, it was a lovely day out and highly recommend if you have a little one as obsessed with berries as mine.
Sarah: We love Mudchute City Farm. The cafe is really good and excellent value.
7. Best piece of advice for dining out with kids?
Sometimes it is definitely a grin and bear it situation. We always try to bring a couple of books and some small toys (nothing that makes a loud sound). Now that they are getting older they are starting to sit and colour which definitely makes life so much easier.
8. Date night – takeaway or take me out?
Sarah: Definitely take me out. Going out for dinner is such a rare occasion these days. We just discovered Arch Rivals in Leytonstone and it was so delicious. Burgess and Hall next door is an amazing wine bar (for that parent 5pm drink). I recently took Ivy in there and the owners were so chilled with a toddler running around.
Katie: Blend Cafe do pop up restaurants for dinner and they rotate them which is amazing as it means we’ve tried everything from Columbian to Chinese food there and currently it’s a Korean Fried Chicken one which we are looking forward to tasting.
9. My earliest food memory…
Katie: I am very fortunate to have grown up in Asia so my earliest memories are eating Thai food, my favourite dish was chicken and cashew nuts (which it still is and is probably why I had to have cashew butter on the list)
Sarah: Far less exotic, but I have amazing memories of the Savoy chip shop in my home town in Llanelli. Smothered in vinegar and salt.
10. Five mums, one table – who’s joining you?
Mother Pukka to chat all things flexible working. Being a working parent is hard and we need people to champion us. Michelle Obama, I don’t think this needs an explanation she is just fabulous and so charismatic. Jessie Ware, her Table Manners podcast with her mum is just hilarious and we just think she is fabulous. Jenny Scott, Jenny runs the fabulous Mothers Meetings, which in her words ‘mentoring mothers to be more mega’. I find her very inspirational and her meeting that she puts on leave you buzzing afterwards, well worth going to if nothing else than to meet some fabulous other mamas. Absolutely Fabulucy, she is a mum on Instagram we follow and we love following her, she is hilarious and has four beautiful boys which are always fabulously dressed. If you are a fan of all things rainbows and unicorns then she is definitely worth a follow.
