Foraged For You was founded by Sheridan Austin in May of 2020. As a qualified Nutritionist and Gut and Psychology Syndrome Practitioner, Sheridan spent many years nutrition consulting clients, developing recipes, delivering seminars and workshops, writing online and magazine articles, and many other services in the nutrition and health space. During this time Sheridan became particularly passionate about nourishment for herself and her family. She often executed these services at her own cost, because the passion for the better health of individuals was more important to her than anything else.
- "In 2017 I became pregnant with my precious little boy Malakai. Throughout my pregnancy, I became overwhelmingly passionate about how to nourish my growing baby and myself through such a physically demanding time. Through my years of learnings, I knew that nutrients require an abundance of other vitamins, minerals, co-factors and more around it in order to do their job - so how could one synthetic prenatal supplement with a small number of nutrients, often in low quality forms, without their other nutrients attached that are present in the whole food source, achieve this and be utilised in the body effectively, without potential side-effects? I went through my own pregnancy taking an array of food based supplements, spending hundreds of dollars, to receive the array of nutrients required during pregnancy.
There truely was (and still is) nothing like it on the market. I couldn't find the quality we all deserve, free from synthetic nutrients, flavours, fillers and emulsifiers, 100% certified organic, and the most nutritious foods on the planet. I decided, for myself, friends and family, that I wanted to create an all-in-one. And after two years of very in-depth research and trialing, the birth of my second baby occurred! - The Mothers Blend"
The Mothers Blend quickly became a staple in thousands of homes worldwide. The growth was incredibly unexpected, however the results customers were experiencing were overwhelmingly addictive, and it became a hot topic among mothers groups, families, friends, cafes, in the online health space and beyond. With very little to no marketing, but a lot of word of mouth, the blend would consistently sell out due to exceptionally high demand. Sheridan went from packing orders herself with her than toddler, Malakai, to sourcing support externally to pack orders due to the impossibility of keeping up. She birthed her second son, Xander, and thankfully had her husband to step on in and support the (almost) uncontrollable growth of Foraged For You.
Sheridan's family, every single day, are beyond grateful for the loving support, incredibly kind customers, our 'cult' like customers as people like to refer it to (haha!), and to be able to work together as a family whilst changing the lives of others.
Sheridan and her now teams underlying philosophy will always and forever be complete transparency, to provide the highest quality, unmatched ingredients, to be the best support we can possibly be to our customers, to only ever think about the needs of our customers and not ourselves, and to be reminded that we, our family, are also a customer that we service every single day and also deserve the highest quality and best nourishment possible.
Welcome you beautiful soul, it is SUCH a pleasure to have you here.
