What’s the biggest nutrition misconception you are always having to clear up
I am a mother of three children. Kelsea 20, Kade 11 and Fletcher 9. My business
Additive Free Pantry was created about 5 1/2 years ago. Kade was diagnosed with
asthma at the age of 3. I stumbled onto the food additive world a few years later
and was dumb founded at what I was reading. After implementing changes within
our home pantry, I was so surprised to see how it changed my youngest child’s
behaviour. He stopped throwing tantrums and was easier to manage in general. I
knew I was onto something. I just had no idea how wonderful it would feel to help
other mums make the same transition.
I am just a mum who read a book, that ignited a fire in my belly that drove me to
create a business to inspire parents to make an informed choice about what is
really going into their children’s little bodies. I love what I do. I feel very blessed to
have the opportunity to inspire change.
are thinking about starting a healthier way of living???
family. What may seem right for one is not always right for everyone. Sugar free,
gluten free, dairy free, nut free, additive free, raw, organic, paleo, carb free, low
protein, high protein, juicing, vegan, vegetarian, fasting….I mean seriously the list
goes on and on. Just choose what “fits best” for you. Don’t try to be everything, just
be the best version of yourself.
Just because a food additive is approved by FSANZ to use here in Australia does
not mean it is safe for consumption. If other countries have banned them, there is a
reason for it. Read the labels, don’t be fooled by marketing and make choices that
benefit your health, not just the manufacturers bank account.
additive is allowed. I do the shopping so it’s super easy to feed my family that way. I
will never knowingly eat MSG, aspartame or numbers like 211, 220 319 and
320…nasty nasty little things.
where do you get your drive?
My children. Kade and his lack of asthma is a huge driving force. Fletcher and his
level behaviour also .To see two kids created by the same parents that have
completely different reactions to food additives is an eye opener. I know that all of
the effort I go to on a daily basis is so worth it. If I get to truly enjoy my children for
who they are, then maybe there are other mums out there who may also benefit
from what I have learnt, seen and changed. Let’s face it, we only get one shot at
time….because our children are worth it!!
anything planned, what would you cook?
Eggs on toast, scrambled or poached with smoked salmon if the fridge is not
morning. I also love anything with mint and pineapple added.
I cannot expect people to take me seriously if I am not living what I teach. I
live and eat additive free…maybe one day it will be the norm for the entire
world to be this way too.
school.. dark choc drops and raw cashews, sweet and filling all at the same
