Simple nutrition for families

My Story

Welcome to My Foodie Family

My name is Charlotte Chapman, Mum to Ezra and Ari as well as wife to Jamie. We also have 2 dogs  and a cat.  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 programme 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 I have been so fortunate with Ari’s eating to date … but it is all a work in progress.

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 hints, tips and basic recipes as well as   skype, email or phone consultations for parents who are worried about their childrens’ eating or for Mums needing a bit of help with meal planning and ideas.

Please contact me on the “get in touch” page if you think there is anything I can help you with.
