A little about us.....
Like all parents we wanted to ensure we were giving our children the best possible start to life. Food and the effect of it is so important. Every meal should be an adventure, one that leads little ones on a journey to a positive attitude towards food. What we eat as children has a huge impact on our growth, development and future eating habits.
As a family, meal times are a huge part of our day. We enjoy eating together and use it as a time to catch up. It can be hard to do this every day. Life is busy and there’s always something going on. The day to day slog can get in the way of the simple things. We have to rely on convenience just to get everything done, but sometimes the convenient options are not the best for us.
That’s why we started Logan’s Plate. We wanted to offer parents a fresh, nutritious baby and toddler food delivery service that they can trust and their children love.
Hi there, I’m a huge foodie. I love food, some might say too much. When I was pregnant with Logan I was so excited about weaning. I researched everything and felt prepared. When he came along, it turned out I wasn’t able to breastfeed. Weaning then became so much more than just food exploration. I felt immense pressure to pump as many nutrients into my children as possible. During maternity leave I was able to dedicate time to batch cooking. Returning to work meant I had to sacrifice my precious time with Logan in order to make sure he was eating balanced, nutrient rich meals on the days I wasn’t around. My friends and family all commented on how well Logan (and now Kaia) ate, Mike was in a state of disbelief about the current baby & toddler food market, so the creation of Logan’s Plate began.
Hi, I’m Mike self professed geek and lover of technology. I can spend hours upon hours researching anything that sparks an interest. When I was in charge of the kids all day, I would often get so caught up in fun, meal times would be a complete afterthought. Thank god for Tijani’s freezer stash. I started thinking about the prepared meals for kids in the supermarket, surely these would save her a lot of time and still provide the convenience. So, I began looking into them (of course, I love a good research project) and was shocked by the way they looked, lack of real flavour and thought they smelled terrible. Why are these presented as good choices? Homemade batch cooked meals were far better than anything that can be found in the supermarket. But, they require time most parents don’t have. So began the year long journey of creating Logan’s Plate. I suppose you can say I’m the brains behind it all.
Meet the name and inspiration behind Logan’s Plate. He’s a caring, sensitive and hilarious 3 year old. His favourite things are superheros, dinosaurs, the solar system and FOOD. We interviewed him for this bio, I wish we had recorded it.
Us: “Hi Logan” Logan: “Hi” Us: “How are you?” Logan: “Good.” *laughs* Us: “Tell us a bit about you.” Logan: “*laughs* Erm, I’m 3 1/2 and I’m Logan.” Us: “What’s your favourite thing to eat?” Logan: “Mummy’s chicken, rice and sausages and pasta and potatoes and carrots and cauliflower and broccoli. I don’t like tomatoes. I like fish. *laughs*”
This is Kaia. She’s a force to be reckoned with. A 20 month old girl with attitude and a heart of gold. She loves Paw Patrol, her big brother and drawing (on the walls and carpet). We tried to interview her for this bio, but she ran off after the second question.
Us: “Hi Kaia” Kaia: “Hi” *laughs* Us: “What’s your favourite thing to eat?” Kaia:” Meat.” *runs off*
This is our family. The faces behind the brand. We would never serve your little ones anything we wouldn’t give ours. All meals are tasted by Logan and Kaia, approved by nutritionists, tested by a lab and cooked in a 5* rated kitchen.
