About the recipe designer and founder of Wholey Foods Breakfast Smoothie…..Natasha Cromer – passionate about breakfast!

Lives in Maroubra, in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.

Wholey Foods is a new brand , with my first product, Wholey Foods Breakfast Smoothies, launching into Woolworths stores in March this year. Wholey Foods Breakfast Smoothie blends will turnover more than a million dollars in retail sales in its first year.

Traditionally, breakfast cereal manufacturers have created food products based on a model of low cost ingredients and then invested in very good marketing. These days, people are trying incredibly hard to make healthier choices. They are trying to be informed, reading labels and they want quality ingredients for themselves and their families.  I’ve invested a great deal in ensuring my Breakfast Smoothie blends are made from only all natural, high quality and recognisable ingredients, without added sugar, preservatives or other cheap additives. I want people to know that when they look at the Wholey Foods label, they can trust the ingredients they are made with.  

People are especially concerned about sugar at the moment. The government, in line with governments internationally are considering a sugar tax.  People are changing what they buy based on sugar content. Wholey Foods Breakfast Smoothies have absolutely no sugar added – not a common occurrence in the supermarket breakfast cereal aisle!

Like most mums, I want to make the best choices I can for myself and for my kids. But life is busy! Wholey Foods Breakfast Smoothies were created with these challenges in mind. Quick to prepare, easy to tailor to your own and your kid’s tastes and full of only good stuff so you can head out into your day knowing you’ve made a positive health choice for yourself and your family.
