Here's a quick tip for those of you with small children. We bought a couple of cheap hand-held fans - you know the kind, they're meant to cool your face in summer - for about 75p each at B&M.
The boys use them to cool their food so it doesn't burn their mouths.
I have to give my parents credit for this idea. When I was growing up we had a little battery powered desk fan (called the "coo" - my younger siblings couldn't say "cool") that we'd take turns passing around to cool our food. Thanks for the tip, Mom and Dad!
