Kid friendly food in Ubud, Bali

We love healthy, fresh food and Bali offers all that and more! Ubud is home to a HUGE variety of organic and free range restaurants as well as raw and vegan for those who are a little more health conscious. And for those who want to try something a little different overseas, why don't you indulge in the delicious street food?! Follow our tips and you wont regret it.

Mingle: This place is on the top of our list! Filled with some of the friendliest staff you will ever meet, ridiculously well priced and delicious food and is really family friendly. Not to mention the 2-for-1 cocktail hour (ahem, several hours..) for when you want to unwind after a hard day of loving Ubud.
Price: $3-$8 / Family-Friendly / Great staff

Sari Organic: Fantastic views and an amazing walk through the rice paddies, they specialise in yummy free-range, organic and vegan meals. They're also a lovely little garden for the kids to explore and pick their own veggies and a friendly cow to make friends with!
Price: $5- $15 / Beautiful location / Healthy options

Maha: Great, affordable food and a lovely garden filled with rescued rabbits! Kids will love to roam around after the bunnies while you chow down on some lunch
Price: $3- $10 / Family Friendly / Rescued rabbits

Oops Restaurant: Another place with incredibly friendly staff as well as a variety of indonesian and western meals as well as a kids menu. Directly across from Ubud Markets it's a great place to grab a bite to eat (especially there Satey Chicken!). Wonder just a little further down the road you will come across Oops Gelato which is perfect for a treat on a hot and humid day.
Price: $6- $15 / Central /  Gelato

Alchemy: Scrumptious raw and vegan food that will blow your mind. The desserts are too die for and the juices are a fantastic way to start the day. Kids corner set up as well, so while you dine they can play!
Price: $5-$10 / Healthy / Family Friendly

Bali Buda: Go to the Bali Buda Mart for a quick pick me up of snacks. Freshly baked goods arrive every morning and are a delicious guilt free way to start the day! 
Price: $0.50-$10 / Healthy / Affordable

Street Food: This is more for the adults but street food is a fresh, cheap and extremely yummy way to get to know Bali on an intimate level. There's no right or wrong way to go about it, but our experience it's best to eat where you see the locals frequenting as it tends to be thoroughly cooked. When in doubt, don't be afraid to ask a local, they will be more then happy to share a bit of their culture with you and you may even end up making a friend! So tuck into some sate and rice on your next trip, you might be pleasantly surprised! 

Don't forget to check out your local Delta Dewata for general staples and kids snacks (like dried & fresh fruit, biscuits etc!) as well as everyday goods. The prices are insanely cheap and a great place to stock up on essentials.

Week 21

Today I ventured out on a walk to the shops with our little bear. The local asian grocer sells Little Miss & Mr books for $1 so instead  of getting a traditional sweet treat Lilly got a lovely book to read! (which she plonked herself in the middle of the walk way and decided to look at several times..) How cool is that though?!

Week 20

Over the weekend we had to collect wood to have a roaring fire at night and hot water during the day. It's funny how a task I used to loathe as a teenager is made so much more exciting with a toddler, huzzah for all those little people keeping us entertained!

A little letter to my Lilly

This is our second Mother's Day together and my little one, how blessed I am to have you. 

Nighttime is our time. As the darkness and the sound of your soft snores fill the room I feel my heart swell with love so pure. You are my little explorer during the day, so filled with curiosity and independence but come night you seem so new, so small. As you grow your limbs lengthen and your chub fades away, almost as if to make to room for your big, sassy, generous nature. 

Always be awesome, my little bear

love, mumma
