Ever since I was 7-years-old, I knew I wanted to be a writer and made my own Mr Men books. Today, I am a freelance writer and have the privilege to review bands, theatre and comedy across Melbourne, not to mention interview some incredible artists.

Australian sourced & produced with all natural ingredients
Need a quick, healthy, hassle-free meal or snack for your baby? Then look no further than FUNCH.
Founded and made right here in Melbourne, FUNCH is a plant-based food company that supports our local farmers and uses ingredients that are 100% Australian. FUNCH produces a range of wholesome snacks that suit the entire family. All the FUNCH range is made with 100% natural ingredients and no added sugar.
FUNCH founder, Lisa Bourne, says "making mealtimes fun and knowing we are all getting the nutrition we need is a huge task, as a parent. With so much to juggle in life, FUNCH cuts us some slack and gives us more time to spend together".
We had the pleasure in testing out three different Fruit Puree pouches which included: Plum, Nectarine and Brown Rice, Apple, Pear and Chia and Peach Nectarine and Quinoa. The purees are targeted at babies 6 months and over and are fortified with DHA and Omega. All the flavours were thoroughly enjoyed, with the Apple, Pear and Chia a clear winner.
The pouches were easy to use and meal times/ snack times were a breeze. Each puree pouch has an adorable Australian animal on the pack, which also doubles as a teaching moment. As babies love animals, these pouches can help you entertain your little one as you feed them. As well as the great pictures, the pouches are well labelled and clearly outline what is in the pouch, giving you peace of mind.
As well as the purees, FUNCH have a range of baby cereals and DIY mixes to help you make healthy snacks for all the family, including delicious protein and snack ball mixes. Some flavours include Vanilla and Coconut Protein Ball Mix and Apple and Cinnamon Snack Ball Mix. With all-natural ingredients, no added sugar or additives, these mixes are a guilt-free treat for all the family.
