Welcome to My Foodie Family
My name is Charlotte Chapman, Mum to Ezra and Arian (Ari) and wife to Jamie. We have 2 dogs and a cat aswell. We live in Tauranga and life is busy.
I completed my Bachelor of Science in Human Nutrition and went on to work for a large food company for many years. I was fortunate enough to manage the kitchen which involved running all of our product tastings and writing cookbooks. I also got to design a program that involved going out into the community and presenting cooking and nutrition sessions for college aged children. Lucky for me, Ezra is a fantastic eater, so I have been able to trial all sorts of new foods and recipes on him. This is how I discovered he loved sushi at 8 months! I’m not sure if I will be as lucky with Ari, but I can’t wait to go through the introduction of eating stages all over again.
It is fair to say I am passionate about nutrition, food and cooking education in NZ, especially when it comes to our children.
They are our future and I think its vital to teach our children about healthy balanced diets and family eating. My goal is to provide recipes and educate parents about all aspects of food WITHOUT crazy diet fads or non-factual information. I want to provide simple nutrition solutions for families… for now this is in the form of recipes and blogs , and in the future it will be in the form of skype, email or phone consultations for parents who are worried about their childrens’ eating.
