Comprising warming meals and snacks for the new Mum, packaged as easy-to-prepare-at-home meal kits delivered straight to your door. Our goal is to support a new mother for her postpartum period and beyond by providing nourishing food that restores and replenishes by feeding her clean, mineral-rich, bioavailable ingredients, so that she can then care for her family and loved ones.
Our meals are holistic, focused on whole foods and the traditional concept of nourishing mothers with warming food. To the best of our ability, our meals are:
- Nutritionally dense to promote replenishment and restoration
- Free of refined sugars
- Free of vegetable oils
- Free of processed foods
We are all about supporting mothers in their postpartum period but also families ongoing. Our food is suitable for pregnant women looking to be nurtured throughout her pregnancy or families who want to ensure their little ones are having balanced nutritious meals.
Inspired by traditional postpartum nutrition concepts.
The postpartum nutrition of traditional cultures consistently prioritises warm, easily digestible, nutrient dense foods. These foods are designed to support the mother’s healing, production of breastmilk and ongoing hormonal balance.
Often this means the inclusion of animal products because they provide essential nutrients that are difficult to attain from the plant kingdom. To ensure best nutritional outcomes, our animal products are organic, pasture-raised or grass fed, sourced from suppliers located as close to Melbourne as possible. We also incorporate different parts of the animal like organ meats that are highly nutritious and valuable for the postpartum diet.
Whilst we do advocate for the inclusion of animal meats in the postpartum diet, we understand that there are other valid diet choices, so we have catered for a variety of preferences in our menu.
