My grandfather was a great gardener, my Dad had a massive garden and my husband loved growing and harvesting untold vegetables.  Peas, peppers, beans, lettuces, parsnips, potatoes, tomatoes and beetroot – they all arrived in my kitchen in bulk and shamefully, these gardening efforts weren’t always appreciated when a day of tennis or catching up with friends was suddenly replaced by a day of blanching, soup making, freezing or pickling vegetables.

April 29, 2019

Where there is a Wish, there is a Way say the Make-A-Wish foundation and it got me thinking about our young Kiwi Mums and what they might wish for during those very busy “bringing up baby” years.

I’ve spoken to lots of mothers over time and although wine and sleep also feature pretty high on the list, the overall consensus seems to be that cleaning and food are the number one “wish someone would do that for me” priorities.

Recycling with The Baby Pantry

Growing a Healthy Human

Growing a Healthy Human

March 15, 2019

Growing a healthy human. This journey begins with those first foods that are introduced to a baby’s palate. I love the analogy of using food as the building blocks for laying a strong foundation, one that will withstand whatever life or mother nature throws at it.

As far as road trips go, our three-day road trip around the South Island to introduce The Baby Pantry to stockists, received a big thumbs up from both of us! The weather was definitely ‘brass monkey’ stuff, but the greetings we received from stores we visited along the way were warm and welcoming.

Sometimes we lose sight of ourselves when our wee bundle of joy comes along.

Suddenly, there’s feeding, nappies to be changed, washing to hang out…. and bring in, there are groceries to pick up, meals to be prepared and in between, try to catch up with friends and get some sleep.

Babies’ wee immune systems take time to build up resistance to bugs, bacteria, chemicals and other nasties in their first year of life. It is important they have access to pure, filtered water right from day one, in both their milk, food and drinking water.

Why Organic Food?

August 10, 2018

Babies and children consume more calories per unit of body weight than adults, and current research shows children today often have twice the pesticide levels (measured in urine) as adults eating a similar diet.  Children are most vulnerable to pesticide exposure because their organs are still developing and they have an immature filtering system (i.e. their immune system is not fully formed).
