About

Sussex Born & Fed is your guide to stress-free family-friendly eating in #Sussex. I usually post weekly but if you want to keep in the loop, sign up to mailing list or come and follow me over on social. 

And who IS Sussex Born & Fed?

Hey! I’m Katie, Sussex-based mum, blogger, writer, content creator, food & coffee enthusiast. I live just outside of Brighton in Hurstpierpoint with my husband, our 2 girls and guinea pigs. I’m not originally from Sussex but have lived here for nearly 15 years. The girls on the other hand are Sussex born and fed and the other half’s a South Coast boy.

I’m a family person who loves eating out. I’m also pretty fond of baking and reading. If I’m not taking the girls for lunch dates when they’re home from school, you’ll find me sipping coffee and reading and daydreaming or hanging out with The Husband for the odd date night. Our date nights almost always involve something foodie.

DAIRY-FREE DAD

We’re big on good food (especially locally grown and organic). But ice cream probably takes the four 10s. Dairy-free for The Husband. He’s allergic to milk. That’s another tricky one to navigate when eating out. If anyone in your family has a dairy-allergy, you might wanna follow or check out The Husband’s Dairy-Free Guide to eating out in Sussex (coming very soon). Of course, we’re not medical professionals, so you must check each dish with the individual restaurant’s team depending on the severity of the allergy in your family. I wouldn’t want to be responsible for making any one ill.

THE ACTUAL NIGHTMARE

Restaurants with small children isn’t always a joyful combination. I’m fully versed in the stresses of being THAT parent in restaurants and cafes which aren’t child-friendly. Likewise, with children who aren’t restaurant-friendly in THAT moment. Having to leave, food untouched and paid for is utterly soul destroying.

BUT WE’RE LUCKY HERE IN SUSSEX. THERE’S A WORLD OF DINING POSSIBILITIES PERFECT FOR FAMILIES. 

Let me share my best finds with you.

And if you have any tip top recommendations, holla!
