A Very Royal Gift! Nourishing Bubs Founder Shares a Bouquet of Carrots O ne half of the “vegetable duo” that gifted a bunch of carrots to Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex in 2018, dietitian Olivia Bates believes in doing things a little differently. As the founder of Nourishing Bubs, an Australian product range of single vegetable purees, frozen into easy-to-use individual portions, Olivia shared with Infuse her business story from inception, development and marketing a brand very much on the rise. What was the inspiration behind the birth of Nourishing Bubs? Nourishing Bubs was inspired through my work as a nanny/babysitter and my additional dietetics study in Paediatric Nutrition. Through my experience and study, I’d learned about introducing foods one at a time, which is particularly useful to observe any adverse reactions or allergies in the initial stages of starting solids. interview continues overleaf... © Dietitian Connection 13 Above: Vegetable bouquet presented to the Duchess of Sussex on their visit to Australia.
