About Us

Sally & Lucy

Thanks so much for visiting us. I'm Sally and I am the Melbourne mum behind BakeMe Snacks. And here's my little gal, Lucy. She's a redhead, a Leo and the daughter of 2 stubborn parents; I can only imagine the teenage years ahead of me!

When I first had Lucy, I honestly didn't realise what hit me. I really felt the pressure of looking after a small human and really felt out of my depth for those first 6 months. OK, probably 12 months. It was definitely not like the Huggies commercials ;)

Pre-baby, I loved getting in the kitchen and cooking, and was passionate about eating well - not kale-and-hemp-powder stuff, but just eating fresh foods with as little processing as possible, and avoiding sugar and things with numbers in the ingredients list.

My pre-baby wish was to of course bring up my little gal on the same sort of eating style - cook her meals and snacks so I knew what was going into her belly was good fuel for her little body.

My post-baby reality was that I barely had time for a shower, let alone cooking from scratch (ladies with cat-napping babies and busy toddlers, you know what I'm talking about!). I felt so overwhelmed and frazzled!

So, of course, I looked for some snacking shortcuts at the supermarket - to be honest, I was pretty horrified - packets and boxes of highly processed snacks, with ingredients lists that looked more like they had come from a lab than a kitchen. Even if they said 'organic' on the label, often 'organic sugar' was one of the ingredients... ummmm, just because the sugar is organic doesn't make it OK!

And so I started - I wanted to create the ultimate home-baking hack for trying-to-keep-it-together mums like me. An easy shortcut so baking healthy snacks at home wasn't such a huge task. So that parents could be confident that their kids weren't being fuelled with sugar (nor the sneaky sugar cousins like malt syrups, corn syrups and fruit concentrates). 

Because I believe that healthy kids are happy kids, and happy kids mean happy parents. And happy parents mean happy kids. It sort of comes full circle.
