Hipster Mum for Garnier

August 26, 2016

so i’m usually behind the lens, but this month i stepped out for garnier to share a day in my shoes.

i’m in love with these videos for so many reasons:

1 | they feature my mum, my grandma, my sister and my daughters

2 | i collaborated on the scripts

3 | the product is actually amazing. been tired since 1998? me too. this stuff is vaseline on the lens for modern mums.

let me know what you think!

stuff is always changing for parents.

blink your eyes between kids & suddenly the shelves are bristling with newer, better gear — & that’s definitely the case for formula. these days there are soy, organic & hypo-allergenic versions, but leading paediatric nutritionist, Mandy Sacher, highlights one key thing mums should look for: formula made from good quality milk.

“most parents don’t realise that on average up to 65% of a formula is made up of milk and milk by-products,” she says. “this makes the quality and source of milk used in any formula of paramount importance.

“mums really need to do their research & to first identify whether toddler milk is right for their child, then make sure the formula they are offering their toddlers is made from a high-grade quality milk.”

Munchkin Grass Fed Toddler is a step in the right direction for the industry and hopefully provides parents with greater choice when it comes to choosing the best formula for their little ones.”

Mandy notes some research on the health benefits 100% grass fed milk has over regular milk:

  • up to five times the naturally occurring conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). CLA is a fat also found in breast milk and has various benefits for babies including boosting the immune system, improved bone mass and controlling blood sugar levels
  • higher levels of beta carotene from grazing on natural pastures, assists with immune health, visual health and fat metabolism
  • increased levels of antioxidants such as vitamin E
  • higher levels of minerals and vitamins
  • a healthier ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids
  • further, cows fed a 100% grass fed diet are not fed a genetically modified feed including things like corn, soy or canola oil

have you tried any new brand formulas for your bub? how have you found them?

yoobi is a local company with a big dream: to help kids in need. for every stationery item bought, the brand donates another to a child who needs it most. last month i was lucky enough to collab with this super cool kids newcomer on a wicked photo shoot to showcase their awesome gear with some truly excellent kids clothes from triangle, minti, doowop kids and more. yep, it was totally as fun as it looks – and then some. big thanks to everyone involved!
