2016 Telstra Business Awards

2016 Victorian Telstra Micro Business Awards goes to Little Innoscents….

Little Innoscents win Telstra Micro Business AwardWould you give up a high-flying, globetrotting corporate career and go back to school to learn about natural therapies? Sell your home and plough your earnings from its sale — almost half a million Aussie dollars — to invest in your business of creating toiletries for babies and children? Meet the ingenious creator Antonette Golikidis who has been cooking up a storm in a little bit of a different way by making potions and lotions in her kitchen to bring you Little Innoscents which 9 years on is sold in over 800 stores nationally and exported to over 10 countries across South East Asia, New Zealand and the Middle East.

Antonette Golikidis has been recognised by taking out the prestigious 2016 Victorian Telstra Micro business Award held at the National Gallery in Melbourne.  Now in its 24th year the Telstra Awards recognise the elite in business and is renowned for showcasing and celebrating the achievements and entrepreneurial spirit of Australia’s most brilliant small and medium-sized businesses.

From humble beginning of cooking up creams in the home Antonette has poured her values and ethos into the Little Innoscents brand and is touched by the recognition received through the Telstra Business Awards.

While developing organic products has at times proved a challenge, Antonette has seen it for the opportunity it presents as she aspires to provide customers with the choice to experience pure, organic and natural products, developed to look after both them and the environment. “There is a product for everyone in the family available that is price pointed to mainstream consumers.” she said.

“Our products prevent the symptoms by making the skin healthier rather than trying to cure the problem. We believe that the true essence of why our range works is its combination of certified organic and natural ingredients,” she said.

The divine Australian baby care range, LITTLE INNOSCENTS is standing out from the crowd in more ways than one.  Proving that organic and natural needn’t mean boring or ineffective, this range of hair, body and bath products has already become firm favourites with mums and families all over the country.

So the sky is the limit for Little Innoscents where we have big dreams for a little company giving a whole lot of love to the baby industry…

Introducing Healthy Food to Kids

5 Helpful Tips to Introduce Healthy Food to Your Kids

Getting your kids to eat well with healthy and nutritious food can sometimes be a little bit of an uphill battle. Little Innoscents spoke to Sarah Butler from Organic Angels in Melbourne for her 5 top tips.

Organic Angles Fruit and Vegetable Box

Our first son, Charlie was our inspiration behind our business Organic Angels. It was time to introduce solid foods which is always a daunting experience for first time parents. I was conscious of what I was about to put into his little tummy after reading about the amount of pesticides and chemicals found in food today. We slowly made the transition to buying organic for those first solid foods. Over time we chose to source locally sourced organic food for all of us, but it wasn’t easily accessible at the time. Scott and I were both working and wanted the convenience of a home delivery service. This gave us the idea to start Organic Angels and here we are, 10 years later.

WSarah and her childrene now have 3 sons (Aged 11, 8, 4). Over the years we have avoided processed, high sugar foods in their diet and have educated them about our food and where it comes from and why organic is better for their health and our environment.  Just this week, with colds going around, my eldest stated at the dinner table that he was going to feed himself extra salad and sauerkraut as he had been unwell. It’s those little moments where I am amazed how aware they are of how good food makes them healthier and happy.

Of course I would love to declare that my boys are easy going and will eat anything all the time, but realistically we’ve had challenges like all parents. Here are 5 tips I have learned along the way and implement in our home.

1) Never give up serving it up!

Avoid falling into the trap of not serving up a certain veggie at the dinner table because your little one doesn’t like it. I almost fell out of my chair when one of our sons told me that he “likes zucchini now mummy”. We have been feeding him zucchini since he was 6 months old and it has taken 4 years for him to finally like it! It can take a child or baby many tries before they get used to taste and texture of foods, so every attempt counts and should be encouraged rather than scolded.

2) Get Clever

There are a few sneaky ways to increase veggies into your child’s diet.  Green Smoothies are a great way of getting in nutrient dense greens. When making a Bolognaise Sauce, finely grate or blend celery, zucchini, mushrooms and carrots and add to sauce. Make cauliflower rice (instead of white rice) to have alongside your favourite curry. Peel and finely slice sweet potato, beetroot, parsnips and cover in coconut oil, sea salt and bake in the oven for tasty veggie chips, delicious with avocado dip or hummus.

3) Food is to be enjoyed

Even if your child is causing a fuss at the dinner table, remember that you are enjoying your dinner. This takes some will power to stay calm and keep eating your dinner happily. Having a conversation around the table about how tasty the food is and what a great job dad or mum has done creating this delicious dinner will create interest to the one making a fuss. Soon they will realise that they are missing out and will want to join in.

4) There is always breakfast!

When all else fails and dinner is downright refused, there is always breakfast. Food should not be forced. Our reply to kids in those moments is “No problem, you might have to go to bed early and hungry tonight, but tomorrow we can make a big breakfast”. Making separate meals to keep your child happy not only creates a bad habit but extra work and stress for you preparing endless meals to keep the peace.

5) Thankfulness & Connectedness

Organic AngelsAs our kids have got older, we love to counteract their negative moments at the dinner table with thankfulness and comes in handy some nights. We hold hands and each go around the table saying something we are thankful for. My comment might be “I am thankful that I have good food in front of me and our local farmer has worked hard to get this food to us”. The kids might simply be, “I am thankful for dinner” or the youngest will always come out with something silly that involves the words poo or fart (sigh…), we are making progress with that one.

Remember, making the lifestyle choice of eating healthy organic foods is the best choice you can make for you and your family.

If you are based in Victoria, Australia, make sure that you check out the delicious organic fruit and vegetable boxes that you can have delivered to your door from Organic Angels at www.organicangels.com. We recently received one of these boxes and were really impressed with the quality of the produce.

The ‘Rub’ on Baby Vapour Balms

Vapour Balm Comparison

Why Use Baby Vapour Balms?

With winter just about to descend, those annoying little sniffles, nasty colds and flus also start to feel more severe and prevalent than at other times of the year. We naturally turn to using well-known remedies like baby vapour balms and rubs to help alleviate symptoms such as coughs and runny noses. We rub them into our children’s skin (and our own) throughout the day and night in order to soothe and protect them.

Vapour balms are well known remedies to help:

  • Bring warmth to the body
  • Clear congested breathing
  • Clear the sinuses
  • Clear the air when used in a vaporiser

Which Vapour Balms Should You Use?

Unfortunately, it is common practice for many people to use traditional vapour rubs which have a heavy petroleum base, however we now know that there is the potential for nasty chemicals to be absorbed into the body via the skin. It’s a popular practice to use these rubs on the chest, back, neck, feet and also under the nose, which means quite a bit of product is being used around the body at any one time.

Lets take a look at the ingredient lists and some of the safety instructions for the Vicks Baby Balsam and the our own Winter Blues Balm:

Vicks Baby Balsam: Petrolatum, Fragrance, Eucalyptus Extract, Coconut Oil, Mineral Oil, Aloe Extract, Rosemary Extract, Lavender Extract.

The Vicks box also states that is not suitable for children under 3 months of age and not to use in a vaporiser. It also states that you should KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN, although they are a happy for your to rub it all over their skin.

Little Innoscents Winter Blues Balm: Sunflower Oil*, Shea Butter*, Beeswax*,  Avocado Oil*, Spearmint Oil*, Wintergreen Oil, Lemon Oil, Lavender Oil, Rosemary Oil, Eucalyptus Oil, Peppermint Oil. *Certified Organic by ACO

The Little Innoscents Vapour Balm is completely free from nasty petrochemicals like petroleum and mineral oil, so it’s safe to use from birth on delicate newborn skin. Instead, it is made from natural Beeswax, Certified Organic Shea Butter and infused with essential oils of Spearmint, Lemon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary. Our fresh and zesty balm absorbs gently into the skin to melt away discomfort and restlessness.

It’s time to throw out the greasy salve lurking in your bathroom cabinet and say hello to the Little Innoscents Winter Blues Balm Vapour Balm.

Available in singles, 2 packs and 4 packs in our online store.
