Back then, it didn't really mean much to me. However, life had some surprises in store. Years down the road, after enduring three heart-breaking miscarriages while juggling a full-time job, I had an awakening.”
“I grew up with the old saying,
"you are what you eat"
Something wasn't quite right, and I wasn't alone in this struggle
Many of my friends were facing similar challenges on the path to parenthood. Between fertility issues and the heartbreak of miscarriages, starting a family was turning out to be far more daunting than I'd ever imagined.
I began to wonder if maybe motherhood wasn't meant for me, and perhaps I should focus on my career instead of chasing the elusive dream of having children. That's when my mom, a Midwife/OB nurse with 50 years of experience and a wealth of knowledge from her travels across Europe, Asia, and the Americas, decided to step in and rescue me from the relentless cycle I was caught in.
With her guidance, I successfully welcomed two healthy pregnancies and the birth of my two beautiful children. Like many moms, I returned to work after my maternity leave, embarking on a 14-year journey in the food industry, specifically in food testing, manufacturing, and quality assurance. Balancing work and motherhood was incredibly rewarding, but it also came with its fair share of challenges.
“These topics frequently made their way onto the PTA meeting agenda, but they were often dismissed as family problems.”
During those years, I found myself wearing various hats, from volunteering as a room mom to serving on the PTA board. Conversations among moms often revolved around the concerning rise in anxiety, mental health issues, ADHD, emotional well-being, obesity, and even suicide among kids. These topics frequently made their way onto the PTA meeting agenda, but they were often dismissed as family problems.
I've always been the type of person who digs deeper, seeking to uncover the root causes behind issues. Superficial answers never satisfied me; I craved a thorough understanding of cause and effect. As a result of my experiences with conception, childbirth, and raising children, combined with my work in the food industry, I developed a passion for understanding the connection between nutrition and the growing health concerns in children. The idea that nutrition played a pivotal role in these issues both fascinated and alarmed me.
It became evident that balanced nutrition, or the lack thereof, was the common denominator in addressing these challenges.
As we navigated each developmental stage, it became increasingly evident that balanced nutrition, or the lack thereof, was the common denominator in addressing these challenges. Suddenly, the old saying "You are what you eat" took on a profound significance. Watching many of my friends struggle, especially when their kids were infants and toddlers, made me realize that my life had been enriched by the knowledge passed down from my mom.
With my understanding of the declining nutritional value of our food supply and the issues plaguing the manufacturing industry, I began contemplating the concept of dietary supplementation for my own children. It became crystal clear to me that supplementation, coupled with a healthy diet, could significantly reduce health risks, especially for growing bodies. As times changed, so did our food supply, with even organic options losing their nutritional value. Additionally, the supplement industry lacked adequate regulation, leaving a substantial gap between our health goals and the actual benefits we could derive.
And so, I stumbled upon my true calling: to establish a brand that educates and empowers parents to embrace a healthy lifestyle, prioritize good nutrition, and address nutrient deficiencies through supplementation. This is the story of how GreenPeach came into existence.
