They'll Go for Greens!

Take one seven-year-old boy named Freddie and his mother as they face the challenge of turning him from a vegetable-phobic into a boy who will eat and even enjoy some of life's leafier pleasures. 'Join us as we work through the A to Z of vegetables' are the opening words of a blog started by Charlotte Hume after another dinner table drama involving her seven-year-old son and peas. She called it the Great Big Vegetable Challenge.

The plan was simple - to introduce him to vegetables cooked in a variety of original and tempting ways and post the results on her blog. From artichokes to zucchinis, broad beans to yams, every aspect of this family vegetable adventure is lovingly chronicled.

As well as being highly practical containing over 100 delicious child-friendly recipes, this fully illustrated book is also the funny and touching story of how a mother changed her son's eating habits for good.

    When Christmas-hating Sidney and his nephew Danny accidentally get locked into a theatre, the last thing they expect is to have to perform A Christmas Carol on stage in front of an expectant audience, aided by two out-of-work actors, the resident theatre cat, and a mouse with stage fright. But of course this is no ordinary night in the theatre, and a sumptuous sprinkling of festive charm is about to transform this Dickens classic like never before.

    So as they set about putting on a show with whatever props and costumes they can get their hands on, and with a little help from the audience too, we're whisked away on Scrooge's magical journey to rediscover his love of life, mankind and Christmas.
    Will Sid learn his own lessons as he plays the famous miser himself? Will Charlie the mouse ever pluck up the nerve to play Tiny Tim? And how on earth will four humans, a cat and a mouse tell the story of A Christmas Carol?

    Presented by a company of extraordinary performers, including Gareth Hale as Scrooge, this festive treat is adapted by Susie McKenna with an original score by Steven Edis, the creative team behind the award-winning Christmas productions at The Hackney Empire.

    This enchanting, feel-good musical version of Dickens' much-loved tale is set to delight young and old alike this Christmas. So Humbug be blowed - come and enjoy the fun!

    Latest deals from Fitness Options

    Check out these special offers from Fitness Option:

    Treadmills
    Treadmills (also called running machines or motorised treadmills) are one of the most popular fitness equipment items for your home fitness gym and for commercial gyms. The learning curve is very low as walking and running is a natural form of exercise & the user can easily determine the level of exertion by controlling both speed & incline. Treadmills are not only easy to use & beneficial for health & fitness, but also very effective at burning calories - 20-30 minutes of a gym workout on a treadmill 3 times a week can burn up to 1500 calories.

    Elliptical Cross Trainers
    Also known as cross trainers or elliptical trainers - these fitness machines offer the same cardiovascular benefits as a treadmill but are low impact exercise machines which decrease the stress placed on your joints. The ellipse is an oval shape, which roughly describes the path of your feet as they rise forward and then sink as they move behind your body, so it's a very natural motion. These are very versatile pieces of fitness equipment too, which enable you to work on major muscle groups equally during your gym workout. You can run, walk, stair climb or even cross country ski! Elliptical cross training machines have adjustable resistance, advanced digital displays and are quiet when in operation - elliptical cross trainers are considered by many as the ultimate sports fitness machine!

    Exercise bikes
    Exercise bikes provide an excellent fitness workout for the large muscle groups in the legs. Exercise bikes fall into two categories, upright exercise bikes & recumbent exercise bikes; Upright exercise bikes are traditional in appearance to a road bike & are very compact. Many offer programmes that automatically change the resistance to simulate pedaling up hills. These are very popular choices when purchasing home fitness equipment. An upright exercise bike is the choice equipment used for the hugely successful weight loss workout & gym fitness exercise - spinning! Recumbent Bikes have a bucket type seat that provides great lower back support. You may think that because the ride is so comfortable the workout will be too easy, don't be fooled, you use a lot of muscle groups pedaling a recumbent exercise bike and the workout can really be hard if you want it to be.
