Will my Fussy Eater Detect the Boosters in their Food?
Veggies+ has a very subtle flavour and slight orange colour that is easy to disguise in baked goods, sauces, spreads or main meals.
Superfruits+ has a berry flavour and pinky purple appearance. It is easily disguised in jam, Vegemite, peanut butter or anything containing chocolate. Children love seeing how it turns milk or batter pink!
Protein+ Choc has a sweet flavour and chocolatey appearance.
Protein+ Vanilla has a sweet vanilla taste and is colourless.
Product testing has shown minimal resistance to detection of the products by fussy eaters.
What is the Nutritional Value of the Boosters?
All Wholesome Child+ boosters are derived from wholefoods.
Superfruits+ and Veggies+ contain high quality fruit and vegetable ingredients that are gently refractance window dried to ensure maximum nutrient value. All products are heat resistant and retain their value through the cooking process.
Veggies+ contains 15 veggies and supercharged greens and 18 bioavailable vitamins and minerals plus prebiotics to promote gut health.
Superfruits+ contains potent immune boosting ingredients, including Acai Berry, Echinacea, Shitake Mushroom and Elderberry. The formulation supports gut health, and one serving provides 100% RDI for Vitamin C for 1-3 year olds.
Protein+ Choc and Vanilla contain a complete amino acid profile and are based on sprouted and fermented pea protein and rice protein that's easy for little tummies to digest. They contain probiotics and prebiotic for gut health, healthy fats and fibre plus wholefood vitamins and minerals.
Are Wholesome Child+ Boosters Allergy Friendly or Vegan?
Wholesome Child+ boosters are vegan, GMO-free and made from organic ingredients. Superfruits+, Protein+ Choc and Protein+Vanilla are also Gluten-free. Veggies+ contains barley and wheatgrass which prevents it from being gluten-free. Our products do not contain any of the following ingredients in the ingredient list: dairy, eggs, nuts, fish, crustacea, eggs, soy, nuts and tree nuts, lupin and sesame. However, our products are processed in a facility that processes other products containing these allergens and we cannot guarantee there is no cross-contamination.

Why Wholesome Child
100% Organic Ingredients
No pseudo science. No artificial nasties. No cheap fillers. Just honest, research-based, tried-and-tested nutrition solutions developed by Chief Nutrition Officer, Bestselling Author and Paediatric Nutritionist, Mandy Sacher.
By a Busy Mum, for Busy Parents
No one understands the challenges of the mum juggle and trying to feed children well better than Mandy. Wholesome Child is here to help wherever you're at on your nutrition journey with practical solutions that are 100% guilt-free!
Proven Solutions, Positive Results
Mandy has helped thousands of families improve their health and wellbeing with deliciously easy recipes, practical strategies and nutrition products which lend a helping hand when you need it. The team is always here if you have any questions and we pride ourselves on a personal touch.
Wholesome Child was created to help parents navigate the competing advice in a context of rising obesity and health problems in children. This is your destination for expert advice, support and solutions to help your children be their best.
It Takes a Village
It's not just up to parents to feed children nourishing foods, and Wholesome Child is so dedicated to the mission of improving nutrition for children that it pioneered Nourish, the first holistic child care nutrition solution in Australia. Mandy's book and social channels engage grandparents, aunts and uncles to help the entire village do better for our children.
The train to enjoy method
Mandy’s philosophy is simple: train children’s taste-buds to enjoy nourishing, nutritionally beneficial foods early as possible to ensure optimal development and establishment of lifelong healthy eating behaviours. Even when foods are being boosted with nutrients, Wholesome Child advocates for serving them in their raw, recognisable state to continue to desensitise children and teach positive nutrition.
