Being a busy mother of three requires me to be a responsible parent, to make certain my children have the best possible start in life. Providing foods rich in nutrients and goodness for their growth and development is a top priority for me.
My thirst to share information on the damage that food additives do to our bodies has led me in the direction of starting my own business… Additive-Free Pantry!
Many people are unaware that there are so many chemicals within our everyday Australian diet. We all have the right to know what flavour enhancers, additives, preservatives and colours are doing to our bodies.
These chemicals can cause such problems as learning difficulties, behavioural problems, hay fever, restlessness, rash, dizziness, eczema, asthma, migraine, sleeplessness and more.
Choose to make an informed choice about what you feed yourself and your children. Our children deserve the best start in life. It is our responsibility as parents to make sure that they are eating foods that are fueling their bodies for a day of educations and play. This is why I believe school canteens need to change.
A number of Government approved “Healthy Canteens” are low in sugar, fat and salt, but are high in chemicals that are damaging our children everyday.
These types of foods that are within the “Healthy Canteen” guidelines should not be consumed by children on a daily basis, if at all.
I believe that all school canteensare responsible to offer a menu with real wholesome foods that fill our children with nutrients and energy. This will enable children to remain in the classroom for continued learning after eating at recess and lunch.
Additive-Free Pantry provides a number of services to suit your community including:
- Tools and information to transform your school canteen or home pantry.
- Strategies for educating our children on additive awareness.
- Informative talks with staff and parents about the effects of additives in our everyday food.
My children still enjoy chocolate, ice cream and chips. We attend barbecues and children’s birthday parties while remaining additive free.
I know we have made the right choice for our family as we can feel and see the difference!
While still cooking the same meals as I did before, the only change to the recipie was the odd brand to allow for additive free cooking.
Eliminate harmful additives………….. because our children are worth it!
