Lauren Cheney is a Perth-based chef and caterer. She is mum to a young child who was born with a rare immune disorder which left him fighting for his life in intensive care for weeks and leaves him forever vulnerable to infections. Lauren threw herself into the thing she knew best - food - and in particular, research into the best nutrition for boosting infant immunity and building neural pathways. Gathering advice from the many medical practitioners that were part of her son's daily life for months, she turned her findings into a manual and cookbook for new parents. Lauren is now launching a Smart Baby food range with a national supermarket chain and is always looking for new ways to get the word out about best nutrition for babies.
