Our mission is simply to help busy parents feed their babies and children with the real, wholesome food they would make at home, in times when they can't. This is what has kept us going and growing over the last 4 years and we want to continue to be the friend you can rely on to deliver great baby & kid-approved meals, without the typical nasties from traditional processed foods.
MEET THE TEAM
With a young family at home, Catherine knows exactly how it feels to be over-whelmed, over-tired and over-worked. She created this business to provide healthy and easy meal solutions for parents. Catherine is qualified in Childhood Diet and Nutrition and believes good business should be socially responsible and stand behind strong, core values and not the bottom line. She is a volunteer firefighter at her local brigade.
"I feel a great sense of passion and pride in what I do. I am proud that I have created a quality product and providing support to tired parents. I am proud that I employ people and contribute to the NZ economy. I am really proud that I’m a positive role model to my children. I’m proud that my business is flourishing, and I’m excited about the opportunity to feed young families decent meals in New Zealand."
Our fantastic nutritionist Davinia Goodes ensures all of the Tot’s Pantry meals are well-balanced, healthy servings. She has her own young family at home and runs Zesty Fox Nutrition on Auckland’s North Shore where she consults with her clients on nutrition and wellbeing.
Who knows which is harder to please; a Masterchef judge or a fussy toddler…? That would be the exceptionally talented and Masterchef-winning, Tamarin Blackmur. Tamarin joined the team at Tot’s Pantry to develop recipes and achieve the nutrition rules whilst producing delicious food that young children will love.
More than 7% Kiwi kids are currently living in severe poverty. We don't think there should be any children going hungry in New Zealand. This is why we support Auckland City Mission who re-distribute our meals to families in need. To date we have donated over 1,400 meals, and we now have an option for you to contribute at checkout. Every cent that you donate will be used to pay for ingredients and packaging materials to prepare healthy mini meals. We will cover the other costs such as staff, kitchen facility, storage and delivery to take care of the rest. Let's work together to feed more children in need.
“Our goal is to improve childrens diets and ease the strain on busy parents, whilst creating a brand that is ethical, sustainable, and can be trusted.”
