We always dreamed of creating a business for the benefit of the community. We believe in the power of collaborative work and that this is the way to generate global change. Also, we share a deep interest in nutrition and education. We believe in the benefits of feeding (and eating) in a framework of affection and respect, being responsive to the child’s cues of hunger and satiety—responsive feeding. We also believe that the eating journey should be understood as a learning process that promotes the acquisition of key skills and mindsets for the future from early life. Therefore, parents should be educated on this in order to provide the adequate guidance and environment to facilitate and foster this journey.
Raising world shapers
The first 5 years of life is a key time when the foundations for learning, health and behaviour throughout life are laid down. So, if we teach children to think, feel and behave (take action!) by themselves in their first years of life, we will guarantee that future generations will not only be happier, but also will be able shape a better future for our planet.
The eating learning journey
We use the eating learning journey as means for the acquisitions of the key skills and mindsets necessary for achieving this, because of its importance in early childhood development and the opportunity it presents to enhance the learning process in an integral way—cultivating mind, body, and soul balance, as well as to build empathy for the planet.
Think, feel and behave
All our solutions are based on the premise that the following aspects need to be fulfilled for children to learn to think, feel and behave independently:
- Ensure healthy brain development—access to a good nutrition and physical activity.
- Provide the right environment, as well as freedom to explore and be curious—which is influenced by parents and caregivers’ mindsets.
- Provide guidance from parents and caregivers—as facilitators who inspire children learning.
