Cat has a long history of working within the food industry, she worked in food education within the UN for many years, and was CEO of Slow Food UK
. So it's not surprising her latest venture, My Little Piccolo
, is all about healthy, organic baby good. In the company's first year it has achieved huge success, showing Cat's clear ability to gauge a gap in the market.
We had a chance to ask Cat about where her passion for children's food began:
"When I started working with the food campaigner Prue Leith, and the National Childbirth Trust (NCT), is when issues surrounding our children’s health and their relationships with food became an all-consuming interest to me. With the birth of my daughter and talking to parents through the food education charity I founded, it became clearer to me that there was a gap in the market and that parents wanted something different."
