We knew that food - the right food - can be healing. Our youngest daughter Skye was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and we had to learn how to support her. We truly believed that Skye's requirements did not have to be restrictions. As a family, we set out on a mission to find foods that Skye could safely eat that would help to maintain normal blood sugar levels. We discovered that we could truly have it all - delicious and nutritious foods - even the treats - by following a low carb, high protein diet.
It was the right choice - our family’s overall health improved. We had more energy, we felt less stressed, stopped craving snack foods, and had no trouble maintaining a healthy weight. Committing to good health was an easy choice, but we soon realised that is also meant a huge time commitment. We couldn’t just pop down to the shop and grab something that ticked all the boxes straight off the shelf, so we started baking. All the time!
We read, researched, tested, tasted and shared our creations with family and friends. The requests for more kept coming - cookies at a birthday party, dessert at a dinner party, bread for a friend with gestational diabetes, bread loaves for a Type 1 going to a school camp... You name it, we were baking it.
It soon became clear there were many families just like ours, searching for products that aren't readily available. Skyebird Foods was born from the encouragement and support of our friends, our kids' friends, parents and so many others who shared with us how low-carb, keto eating changed their lives.
We are so pleased to offer you our family's favourite low carb, keto friendly, high protein and diabetes friendly baked goods.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. We are here to serve, nourish and support you.
Dani, Glenn, Ellie and Skye
