In a video captioned “Secrets to eating out from a mum of 4!”, she revealed how she always takes a fun pack for her kids to use at dinner.

There are also some practical items too, such as masks and plasters in case of any scrapes.
She explained: “People always ask what is our secret to going to restaurants as a family-of-six.
“We bring emergency restaurant kits, we fill them with things we may need.
