Baby Bistro is a range of organic baby and toddler foods that balance health and taste, and are easy to store and serve

Sevi Stolica established the business when her eldest son, Lucas, suddenly became a fussy eater. Sevi’s desire to source better alternatives to processed baby foods already in the market led to the conception of Baby Bistro

Can you tell us how you started your business?

My eldest son fussed at meal time and the advice i was given was conflicting. I decided to take it into my own hands and when i learnt about what mass production manufacturers put in our kids foods i was not happy. I found a gap in the market for real food with good nutrition for our young generation and wanted to offer a real healthy back up for busy families. So i made it myself!

What would you say has been your biggest challenge and how did you over come it?

All of our meals are frozen to preserve (and lock in goodness). The biggest challenge we faced was getting consumers to purchase their kids meals from the freezers instead of the shelves as it had never been done before.

What is the one thing that has had the biggest impact to your success?

The one only thing was social media influencer posts. When we started no one was charging for posts. That helped us spread the love and get our meals in front of families.
