In terms of baby food, the supermarket shelves were filled with jars and more jars, mostly non-organic, uninspiring in variety and often quite tasteless. The food for toddlers, even many of the ‘organic’ snack products, contained fillers, sodium and sugars. Before becoming a mom, Leah spent many years teaching students with special educational needs and behavioural difficulties, and was very aware of the negative consequences of children eating foods containing such ingredients. She wanted Poppy, right from the start, to grow up with an appreciation for healthy ‘real’ food.
Leah, an experienced and enthusiastic cook, began making most of Poppy’s food at home. Giving Poppy fresh homemade food was obviously the ideal, but at times it simply wasn’t convenient. They still wished there were better ready-made options to choose from. This desire became even stronger when their family expanded to include Cameron - now there was even less time to prepare baby food!
After much discussion, John & Leah decided they would start up their own food company for infants and young children. Their company would be committed to making organic, convenient and tasty food, with a strong focus not just on leaving out the "bad stuff", but also on including as many nutritrionally-rich, natural ingredients as possible. Love Child Organics is that company, and they're very proud to bring their products to market. This is just the start for them, and they look forward to growing their product range alongside you and your family.
