"As a mum of two myself, I know how difficult it can be to prepare healthy food when things get hectic. It is natural to put the needs of our kids ahead of our own but it is essential that as Mums, we ensure we eat the correct balance of nutrients to power us through our busy days.
Before having children, I was never a huge advocate of meal replacement shakes. In the haze of sleep deprivation and feeding schedules, I found the convenience of a shake meant that I could get the nutrition I needed. I felt better and had more energy because it meant that I was eating better and never skipping meals or snacks. They kept me going!
Although eating well prepared, nutritious meals made from whole foods is always going to be the optimal nutrition choice, this isn't always possible. The In Shape Mummy Health Shakes are a great way for us Mums to easily supplement our nutrition needs in a tasty way. When combined with a balanced diet, they can provide the vitamins, minerals, fibre and protein that we need to sustain energy levels and/or lose weight effectively and safely.
Having a quick and tasty option like the The In Shape Mummy Health Shake also helps to reduce the risk of reaching for fast foods or a high sugar snack in moments of weakness. The In Shape Mummy Health Shake contains less than one gram of sugar per serve while avoiding the addition of any nasty artificial sweeteners. This is impressive considering many meal replacement shakes contain over 40 grams per serve - that's over 10 teaspoons per shake!
A key feature for these shakes is that they contain organic pea protein. Protein is essential for stabilising sugar levels, boosting energy levels and most importantly, keeping us full. Pea protein provides a low allergenic vegan protein option that is more easily digested and generally better tolerated than other forms of protein. Personally, I had two babies who were both dairy intolerant and having a shake that is free from dairy was a lifesaver.
The In Shape Mummy Health Shakes also support breastfeeding with natural ingredients such as milk thistle assisting with healthy milk production. Important antioxidants, fibre and Omega-3's are provided by the inclusion of superfoods such as Acai Berries and Chia Seeds.
In Shape Mummy Health Shakes are an overall great addition to the diet of a Mum who wants to look after her health and wellbeing without missing out. They’re quick, they’re easy and they’re nutritious."

"I tend to be wary of a lot of commercial meal replacement shakes made from whey and soy proteins. A lot of these shakes have highly processed or artificial ingredients and often contain sugar. What I like about In Shape Mummy shakes is that they are made with natural ingredients, which are so much better for your energy levels and health.
In Shape Mummy shakes are also made with organic pea protein, which I consider to be a better form of protein than the heavily processed whey protein, which often contains lactose. Lactose intolerance is more common than you might think, and may be undiagnosed in many people.
For my clients, who often struggle with making changes, or need to eat more frequently to stabilise their blood sugar, a healthy shake can be the ticket. I always advise preparing healthy snacks with protein and good fats in them, but a shake like In Shape Mummy's is also a great option. That way my clients are eating regularly, helping them to feel fuller for longer. They stabilise their blood sugar and, in the end, lose weight and feel happier.
Eating well prepared, balanced meals made from whole foods is always the best nutrition solution, but when you’re on the go, the In Shape Mummy Health Shakes are a far healthier choice than reaching for junk food."

"The In Shape Mummy Shakes helped me lose all my pregnancy weight. They also gave me the energy to look after my 3 amazing children and to work out. I found the ISM Shake really easy to use as my breakfast and it kept me full and satisfied. I was traveling a hour to school drop off every weekday morning and this was a quick and very easy way to get in a healthy energising breakfast. Before I started In Shape Mummy I was skipping breakfast all together and feeling very flat. Best of all my baby gets to enjoy all the benefits through my breast milk as well."

"I am in love with this product! In the past I tried everything under the sun to lose weight and nothing worked. I paid for a gym membership I never used, I downloaded countless healthy recipes that I never got around to making… it was all too hard. The In Shape Mummy Health Shake works for me because it is simple and easy. I have a velcro baby who hates me in the kitchen so this quick shake is a life saver. I’ve been using it for 6 weeks and I’ve lost 7kg already. Woo hoo!”
