In the current world climate there's no better time to start a business from your own home. Starting a business from home can be an excellent low cost way to create the work-life balance you might need whilst bringing in an extra income. Or perhaps you've found yourself recently unemployed and you're looking for alternative ways to bring in an income? Whatever you're reason, I'm here to help.

You probably won’t have too much time to learn entirely new business skills in order to start your own business, so what if I told you that you won’t need any new skills to start up your own flexible, work from home business?


And what if I also told you that you could run your own business by offering a service you may already really enjoy and be passionate about – cooking or baking in your own kitchen!

All you need is someone to help you shortcut, hit the ground running and avoid making costly mistakes. Someone to help you get clear on what you need to do, so you can get on and do it. Luckily, you just found that person - me!

... because I've done it myself!

I started Tot-Pots Homemade Toddler Meals shortly after my children (twins) reached the toddler stage after realising I needed a better life-work balance. 

I developed a series of recipes - all crammed with goodness, got myself registered, wrote up my food safety sheets and sourced my suppliers. I created a simple website, facebook page and knocked up some promotional flyers - I found my first customers and the rest just followed! 


Having set up and managed my own successful home based food business, I want to help you set up and run your own. A 'work from home' business offers flexibility... it gives you the opportunity to do as much or as little as you like, you can fit things in around your own family commitments as you grow and develop your business.


If I can do it, you can too - and I've made it SUPER EASY for you!

Are people still buying during the pandemic? 

People still have to eat, right? With fewer people wanting to shop at the supermarket and more people expecting home deliveries, there really has never been a better time to offer a homemade toddler meal delivery service. You can even partner with a food delivery company to deliver your food orders for you 👍
