Welcome New Member – Kari Sherman, Founder of Tom Pom Organic Baby Food – to the SMBN.

I am delighted to welcome Kari Sherman, Co-founder and Managing Director of Tom Pom Organic to the Single Mums Business Network. Kari’s range looks simply mouth watering and I am very excited to be able to support her by helping to raise awareness of her biz.

Here’s what Kari says;

Hello! I am Kari, a single mum of two boys aged 14 and 18. I am an American that has happily been here over 22 years; the UK is where I feel at home – I love it. My ex who I co-parent with is Spanish, so my boys are lucky to have 3 passports! My youngest, Tommy, had severe food allergies when he was born, and all the baby food available from the shops looked nasty and often contained something he could not have. The nights cooking in tears as I navigated his food allergies, lack of sleep along with my energetic 4 year old at the time with really no other support or family was hard. Really hard. Things have changed, and though I have a new partner, he lives near Chichester, and we want to raise our kids near their other parent and friends instead of merging families. He has encouraged me to follow my dream and start Tom Pom Organic baby food which was founded in 2018 as a weaning solution for parents who value nutritional transparency and want something closer to home-made meals. We manufacture our products as quality and minimal processing is essential to maintaining those gorgeous natural flavours and colours from quality ingredients. I also love to blog about being an eco-family (always with an economical eye), an allergy family and of course weaning tips and family recipes. Outside of work, I love Pilates, walking in the woodlands, basketball (I am 6ft tall), and anything food, property and travel related. I am looking forward to meeting other hard working single mums, hearing their stories, supporting each other and hopefully having some fun too!

I have no doubt about the calibre of single mums in the UK, and the SMBN is proud to showcase so many capable, smart and intelligent women who are working hard to create and sustain businesses to enable them to sustain primary caring responsibilities at the same time. The SMBN is not anti Single Dads – please see the website’s front page for male only networks for dads!

Welcome Kari to the Single Mums Business Network! and thank you for helping us educate public perception and dispel misconceptions and stereotyping about UK single mums. We appreciate you.

Right darlings! The Gov have just made a ‘bit’ of a ‘massive’ poop in judging you instead of tackling the root cause and keeping you safe in the interim, so, let me see what I can do to help… Webinar/ Workshop – Breaking Free from Benefits – Flexible Working and Self-Employment – Free of Charge – all welcome regardless of reason for needing support.

I cannot express enough how disappointed I am in the Chancellor’s attitude towards the most vulnerable members of society in receipt of universal credit. I am all for everybody working, and I am all for growing the economy, but punishing the most vulnerable, instead of tackling the root cause, epitomises what is wrong with our Governance. I have always been a proud tax payer, but right now, I am not proud of where that tax is going.
