Now in its sixth year, the Mums Choice Awards programme is designed to give mums a clear insight into what products in the market are favoured by their peers. Organised and published by parental publication UKMums.TV, the awards are separated into five categories: Best Toy, New Baby Must-Haves, Children’s Entertainment, Style for Mum, and Best Food and Drink. The awards are tested and judged by real mums and their families.
Corinna Davis, organiser of the Mums Choice Awards, said: “This year has seen an incredible number of entries into the Mums Choice Awards, and the standard has been exceptionally high! We’d like to thank all entrants, as well as our mums and their families who helped us test and review products this year. We value what mums and their families think, and it’s true, mums really do know best!”
