The Power Of Hindsight

The Power Of Hindsight

Hindsight is a wonderful thing – in our heads it lets us go back in time to make adjustments to our lives, to say things differently, to pay more attention to loved ones, to berate those we tolerated for too long, to have a better outcome for ourselves.

Hindsight teaches us new life lessons.  And with the benefit of hindsight what I wouldn’t give to be a new Mum again, to have the knowledge we have today and to feed my children the way we at The Baby Pantry prepare meals for babies and children – real nourishing food for precious babies and toddlers.

We source our herbs, veges, meat and ingredients from registered New Zealand organic and spray-free producers. We cook, chill and freeze it down using the latest, state-of-the-art technology and food control processes, in a HACCP certified commercial kitchen.

As a young Mum I chose to feed my babies the freshest food available, usually from our own garden, but alas we were the generation duped by the food industry - we believed the food and food practices of the time were safe – we didn’t realise how many chemicals were sprayed on to our vegetables, how many artificial substances were in our processed food and we had no idea about the excessive amounts of sugar in our bread, cereals, sauces and baby food. 

Thankfully we are much better-informed nowadays and I applaud the young Mums of today who read, research, check and double check what they and their babies are eating - they’re helping to make the food industry honest.

I see now, it didn’t matter the house wasn’t always perfect, it didn’t matter the kids didn’t always have the flashiest clothes or toys and it didn’t matter I didn’t make every meal with my own hands.

Parenting is an incredibly tough, time-consuming job, so let us at The Baby Pantry help you with your baby’s meals. Then you can relax, get back some quality time and make new and happy memories with your family – in hindsight, you’ll be pleased you did!

I remember going to work with my Dad, untold years ago. If you behaved yourself during the week, you got to climb into the logging truck with Dad on the weekend and head off to the workshop with a thermos of Milo, a couple of sandwiches, a treat and a chance to wash our hands with Swarfega, just like Dad.

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.
