Inter Faith Week

Munchachos Snacks Children: World Curiosity Inter Faith Week

What Is Inter Faith Week?

This week at Munchachos, we are celebrating Inter Faith Week. This is a celebration of diversity in the UK, a subject that we hold very close to our hearts here at Munchquarters. 

The aim of the Week is to increase awareness of the different communities in the UK and increase understanding between people of religious and non-religious beliefs. Sounds good. What do you think?

How Did it Start?

The origins of the Week can be found in religion. However, Inter Faith Week’s objective is one that should resonate with you whether religious or not. Essentially the message is that of acceptance and a promise to increase understanding of other people’s beliefs and cultures. This sounds familiar

How Is Inter Faith Week Celebrated?

To celebrate the Week, communities across the UK are organising large and small events such as Multi Faith walks; religious workshops; treasure trails and competitions all whose goal is to enable greater interaction between people of different backgrounds. 

Inter Faith Week deliberately begins on Remembrance Sunday (the anniversary of World War 1) every year to give people of different backgrounds the opportunity to remember those who have fought and served during the war – both from the UK and from the countries that have now become the Commonwealth. 

This year it is the Centenary of the end of World War 1 (meaning 100 years have passed since World War 1 ended). Among the special events organised will be the ‘People’s March’ past the Cenotaph in London during which 10,000 members of the public will express their gratitude to the generation that served.

The Cenotaph is the UK’s official national war war memorial in London.



At Munchachos we think that Inter Faith Week is a fantastic idea. Even within our very small team we can claim roots from six different countries! We strongly believe that acknowledging and celebrating these different cultural backgrounds makes our lives richer and far more interesting.

Inter Faith Week’s official website can be found here on which you can discover how you can get involved.

Remember, Remember, the 5 November!

Munchachos Snacks Children: World Curiosity Guy Fawkes Bonfire Big Ben

Did you celebrate Guy Fawkes Day this weekend? The team at Munchachos enjoyed the most spectacular fireworks display surrounded by fellow Munchachos and delicious Munchables. When the fireworks ended, someone curiously asked “Who was Guy Fawkes and why do we light fireworks?”. We had no choice. We had to find out! 

Who Was Guy Fawkes?

Guy Fawkes was a member of a 13 person team that tried to kill the King by blowing up the Houses of Parliament in 1605. Guy Fawkes and his friends were Catholic and they did not agree with King James I who was Protestant.

They decided to take matters into their own hand. They stored 36 barrels of gunpowder in the basement under the House of Lords (this is where people meet to decide how to run the country). The plan was to light the barrels on 5 November. 

A member of Guy Fawkes’ team did not feel comfortable with the idea that some innocent people were going to die in the explosion. He sent a letter that reached the King, warning him of the plot. The King immediately ordered his men to investigate and when they reached the basement they found Guy Fawkes’ guarding the barrels. 

Guy Fawkes was captured, tortured and executed.  

So Why the Fireworks?

King James I announced that people should always celebrate that the Gunpowder Plot never happened on 5 November. People light bonfires, set off fireworks and sometimes even burn a doll that looks like Guy Fawkes. 

Guy Fawkes Day is celebrated in many places around the world and is also known as Bonfire Night.

Hungry for Hummus!

Munchachos Snacks Children: World Curiosity Hummus

We absolutely love hummus here at Munchachos HQ. It is full of fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals. Most importantly though, it incredibly delicious! We can never get enough of it and find every excuse to eat more hummus. We use it as a dip for our munchables and our carrots and a spread for our toast. 

Are you hungry for hummus and ready to make some of your own?

For this you will need: 

A can (300g) of chickpeas

A clove of garlic

50 ml of extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons tahini paste

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 lemon


Now for the fun part:

Got all your ingredients? Washed your hands? Called your grown up for help? Perfect, lets get making! 

Drain the chickpeas and rinse them with running water. Pour them into a blender. In your blender, add your garlic clove, olive oil, tahini paste and ground cumin. Now it is time to use your muscles. Grab the lemon and squeeze the juice into the blender. Now start blending until the chickpeas transform into a smooth paste. It is really that simple! 

Pro Tip #1: If your hummus is a bit thick, add some water and blend a bit longer. Be careful not to add too much water!

Now pour your hummus into your serving bowl. 

Pro Tip #2: Decorate your hummus with some olive oil and a bit or paprika.

All that is left now is to call your fellow munchachos, grab your munchables and get dipping! Our favourite is munchable to dip is the Chomps Elise.

Autumn fun!

Munchachos Playing in Winter

It is officially the first week of autumn (in the Northern Hemisphere). We know this because this weekend was the autumn equinox. The equinox is when the day and night are approximately the same length. This happens twice a year: once at the beginning of Spring and once at the beginning of Autumn. The autumn equinox happens around the 22nd of September. 

Autumn is also known as Fall and is one of the most beautiful seasons. There is so much to look forward to!


What Are We Looking Forward To? 

Below are the 3 things we are most excited about autumn for at Munchachos HQ:

1. The Leaves Start Changing Colour

On some trees (not the evergreen trees), the leaves begin to turn yellow and orange. It is one of our most favourite sights. We particularly love taking walks through the parks and drives into the countryside to really enjoy these beautiful colours. Sometimes we collect our favourite leaves, take them home and create a beautiful collage.

2. Play Conkers 

We love to play conkers. To play conkers you first need to find a conker! Conkers are seeds of the Chestnut tree and you can find them almost anywhere in the fall. They are eaten by deer and squirrels but conkers are poisonous to humans. To learn how to play the loved conkers game, watch the video below:



3. Apple Picking

One of our favourite things to do is visit a nearby orchard and walk around collecting apples. The best part is eating these freshly picked apples and creating the most perfect apply pie when we get home!

How Does This Relate to Who We Are and What We Do?

We never want to lose our childlike curiosity and need to perpetuate children’s innate curiosity. There is so much to see and do and learn. So grab is known a sweater this autumn and get exploring and playing! A few munchables will keep you energised too. Share your adventures with us here!

So Why is Play So Important?

Below are the 3 reasons why we believe play is essential:

  3. Feel Good: Does anyone not feel better during and after play-time? Forget about homework or anything frustrating and just have fun. You will be fresh, full of energy and ready to tackle any problem.
