Thanks for popping by to check out my blog, Little Foodie Guide.
I’m a mama to one, with another on the way. I guess I wanted to start this blog because when I first started my son on solids, I became slightly obsessed with children’s nutrition. I’m not a qualified nutritionist or cook, but I have put thousands of hours into research and into cooking wholesome, colourful food. I felt passionately that I needed to share this knowledge with other parents who are at this same stage of their child’s life.
My son wasn’t the first child I started on solids, though. I’ve had a little headstart. Oh, about 15 years of a headstart! I worked as a professional nanny in Europe and Melbourne for that period, and I always chose roles with babies and toddlers. I’ve seen every stage of eating, and experienced every developmental phase that affects how kids eat. From the little foodies to the little fusspots, I’ve known them all.
I would like my blog to be a place to share all of these insider tips and tricks I’ve picked up along the way, but in a no-fuss, non-pressured or overwhelming way. I’m always learning, so please share with me all of your tried and tested recipes, how you’ve overcome certain frustrating phases, or what it’s like to have kids with food allergies, intolerances, or medical issues that can be impacted by diet. I’m extremely inquisitive (read nosy), so I like to interview other parents and experts, so please get in touch if you’d like to chat.
I’m just like you – a person with a passion to cook healthy food for our kids. Nothing wild and difficult, just simple back-to-basics real food cooking. I know all about time-poor, so nothing I post will be complex.
I warmly welcome you to Little Foodie Guide, and look forward to cooking with you.
