Now Peppa is on TV all day

Children adore being spoilt by their grandparents, but is it too much?

VERITY LUSH: Don’t blame gran for kids munching on e-numbers

There is so much choice for children when it comes to television channels.

Sometimes I’m not sure which numbers to press on the remote control when my daughters Caitlin and Alyssa ask to watch ‘their programmes’.

The problem is, when I get used to a type of programme they enjoy watching, they’ve then lost interest in it and moved on to something new.

For example, it seems not so long ago Caitlin would enjoy Balamory, which is targeted at pre-schoolers.

But recently, when I selected this from the on-screen TV guide, it was rejected by Caitlin.

Apparently this show is now ‘boring’ and ‘for babies’. Spongebob Squarepants, on the other hand, was just the thing.

Alyssa, though, still hasn’t moved on from Peppa Pig and for her, children’s TV has got even better with a brand new channel showing her favourite talking pig non-stop all day.

Funny thing is, even though the channel is called Nick Jnr Peppa, with Peppa Pig being shown back to back, at the end of each show they still announce ‘More Peppa Pig next’.
