Commenting on this exciting partnership, Irene saidPipin Pear Baby Food are delighted to be the new sponsor of the long established and much loved Barnardos Big Toddle. We have seen the impact that this wonderful campaign has had on the lives of vulnerable children over the last 18 years and we are thrilled to be part of this wonderful community of toddlers and wobblers in 2021! We encourage everyone to get involved – from Mums and Dads to crèches and Montessori groups across Ireland – it’s a fantastic opportunity to get children out walking and moving, all while helping others.” 

The theme of this year’s Big Toddle is Community Helpers, people who help and support us all in our communities every day. At the very heart of Big Toddle are the children who take part and raise vital funds in communities across Ireland. Families can register at

Barnardos Director of Fundraising, Mary Gamble said: “Barnardos Big Toddle is a highlight for us each year; it’s wonderful to see so many children get involved with helping others. Our theme in 2021 is Community Helpers, a way of honouring the frontline workers that did so much for all of us throughout the Covid19 pandemic. Like them, the toddlers and wobblers around the country band together to do great things and help others less fortunate. We are also delighted to welcome Pipin Pear on board in 2021 as our Toddle sponsor. Their support is invaluable. I hope you will join us this year, whether it’s a toddle in a crèche or a day of fun out the back garden, it will make a massive difference in the lives of vulnerable children across Ireland.
