When weaning my boys I wanted them to enjoy fresh, natural and tasty foods. The right nutrition at this time offers a unique opportunity to shape a healthier future. I wanted my boys to grow up loving fruit & veggies as much as I do.
When introducing solids to my first son Gavin, I trawled through the supermarkets to find a fresh, nutritious and convenient baby food but there was nothing available. So I began making my own tasty and healthy purées. But family time is precious, and once weaning started I found making batches of purées was eating into our fun time. All that peeling, chopping, steaming, blending, dividing, freezing and then the washing up!
By the time my second son Paul came along there was still no fresh product available . I continued making my own purées,but it was even more challenging with a toddler in the terrible twos. As all parents know, family life can be hectic, but it is also hugely valuable, so with this in mind I was inspired to create Organic Little One.
What started as a necessity has now grown into a business. With a lot of hard work and plenty of support from my family and friends, Organic Little One is now available nationwide.
