From Superfoods for Kidz
Can you share with us your background before children…
Life before children, we were always interested in healthy living, surfing, yoga and working hard.
How and why did Superfoods for Kidz come about?
Superfoods for Kidz came about when our granddaughter Harmoni, would put her whole hand in the tub of Acai Berry Blend on our kitchen bench.
Harmoni was diagnosed with epilepsy, and we watched her health improve from having our adult blends daily and we decided to create our Superfoods specially made for Kidz.
Can you describe to our readers exactly why you think your products are a great choice..
Our products are a great choice because they are 100% natural whole foods and they taste yummy too !. They are so easy to add to your everyday lifestyle whether it is a busy lifestyle that you are looking for quick ways to add extra nutrition or you have a fussy, or sensory affected child our products are there to help you.
Because our products are 100% natural all of the nutrients are directly absorbed by your body quickly– quite simply its real food, real fast. Completely different to the way your body absorbs and breaks down synthetic multivitamins
Can you describe your workplace?
Our workplace has changed immensely in the past 12 months, we have been so blessed to grow from a little room in our house to a factory today.
To be honest it doesn’t feel like work as we are living our dream, we are one big happy family business all working together.
Customer service is so important to our business, it is our passion and speaking to our customers and hearing the difference our products make to their life just gives us more drive to achieve more and expand our range.
Your creative processes in developing your brand..
Our creative process is looking for something that we would like to have in our families and it grows from there, developed in our home kitchens initially … we only make what we would eat
How do you juggle working and having a family ?
Our family is now grown up and we now help juggle grandchildren.
Do you think parenting is different from when you were raised? How?
Yes, absolutely there is so much pressure on parents these days, from household incomes to technology, to simply kids being allowed to be kids and be outside and explore we used to disappear for hours after school society has changed so much now it is difficult to do that now.
Have your self expectations changed since having your family? For better or worse?
I always wanted to be a wife and mum and now with three grandchildren I feel so blessed. Seeing our children and grandchildren grow it makes us want to make a difference to their health with our products to help them enjoy a long, healthy life.
Do you have a wonderful resource that you discovered once you became a mother/father? A book? A blog? Person?
There were no blogs available 20+ years ago, but I always studied health books and always sought natural alternatives to eating or whenever there was an illness as a first option. My friends always called me a hippie, but it was that grounding that bought about our Nutra Organics range.
What is one thing you swore you would never do as a parent – and now do!!
Let the grandkids wrap me around their little finger – in fact they have me wrapped around my whole body love them so much.
Can you walk us through a typical day.
Wake up at 4:30am/5:00am, the first thing I do is have lemon juice in water and have a walk around the vege garden and pick greens for breakfast and head down to the beach for some surfing or Yoga.
Then home for a green smoothie and head into the factory.
A typical day for us could include making up some recipes for either a new product or ways to use our existing range, talking to customers, sending and processing orders, talking to customers
I make a whole food lunch for the family (team) to ensure we are sustained with great food to keep our energy levels up and happy.
Evenings are watering my veggies, maybe a walk down the beach, reading and early to bed.
Of course my day is a little less hectic than days gone by… there is light at the end of the tunnel everyone
A tip for all of us on keeping it real….
Its not what you have everyday
But what you love everyday
