Last week we looked in my trolley as part 1 of this series, giving sneak peaks into the weekly food shops of some healthy Aussie mums.
This week, we meet dietitian Kate Wengier. Kate is a family dietitian with a passion for improving the eating habits of families and communities. She created Foost to teach easy ways of eating more fruits and vegetables. All 4 of her kids love fresh, fun food (well most of the time). Her mission is to create happier family mealtimes and improve food education to young children. She has a keen interest in the Non-diet approach to eating. She is the author of three children’s books. With over 12 years of nutrition and dietetic experience, Kate enjoys media work and has appeared on TV, radio and print both in Australia and Overseas. Her favourite vegetable is cauliflower and she loves rocky road.

What’s in my trolley quiz
Each week as part of this series, I ask my guest blogger the same questions to get a little more insight into their healthy shopping. Here’s Kate’s Q+A.
1. Where do you normally shop?
Woolworths due to convinence. I enjoy going to local butchers, fruit shop, bakery and farmers market when I have time but lately I have been using Woolworths for my big shops and my IGA (which I can walk to with my Foost trolley bag) for smaller shops).
2. Who is in your family?
2 adults and 4 kids (12, 10, 7, 5)
3. Dietary Requirements?
4. How long will this shop last you?
About 1 week with a small shop top up for bread, milk, eggs, fruit and veg
5. What’s not in this haul that you eat regularly?
- Mountain bread
- Peanut butter (cause we are already well stocked).
- I usually buy double the amount of eggs.
