Our ingredient policy.
Shop confident with our 4 Step Real Food Check.
We love nourishing, whole food. Does our family eat it 100% of the time? No we don’t. We have children, and they have Grandparents 😉 Wherever you’re at on your journey, you can shop here knowing the food is super nourishing, nasty-free legit goodness. Our 4 step real food check is how we do it.
1. General Inspection
TWC Wholefood Head Hunter Jo checks ingredients, origins, supplier ethos and more. Jo is passionate, discerning and a true champion of the organic wholefood lifestyle. Unfortunately this modus operandi was born out of the suffering of her son with major gut health problems. You can imagine how the labels are read, right? What makes it through this first cull? Products without labelled additives, preservatives, gums, thickeners, MSG, GMO, artificial colours… you get the picture. We prioritise Certified Organic, Aussie grown, Aussie businesses. We offer spray free, conventional or overseas product only when Aussie organic doesn’t exist, is too scarce or spendy.
2. Nasties Check
Additive Free Advocate Francine gives the Squeaky Clean Food Guarantee. All products are put through the wringer by a world leader in additive detection (true story – Francine is an advisor to the Global Anti Additive Organisation, and wow is she thorough!). Think additives are just numbers? Think again. Francine checks for all the additives that aren’t listed as additives, or even declared on labels. She’s had us asking the same supplier sometimes 4 times over for information and then more information on processing methods and sub ingredients. She leaves no stone unturned, and we’re proud to have her scrutiny on the panel. She errs on the side of caution for particularly sensitive people, and products she recommends are given the ‘Additive Free Kids Approved’ stamp of approval.
Francine Bell is the Managing Director of Additive Free Kids, a food coach, mentor and is one of Australia’s leading activists against additives in foods. In fact, she’s an Advisor to the Global Anti Additive Organisation! True story. Francine is a mum to 5 boys and has personal experience working through the damaging effects of additives to resolve the multiple health issues and behavioural problems in her own children. It became Francine’s purpose to help other families achieve the same improvements for their families. Francine has done all the hard work for families to ensure they have access to additive free food, anytime, anywhere. Additive Free Kids specialises in assisting families to live healthy lives free from additives.
