I am thrilled to have joined the I Quit Sugar team as one of their “qualified, bonafied and recognized experts” to help out on the forums for their first official 8 week program.

My Bio is on their website now, check out below to see what I am serving Sarah Wilson’s I Quit Sugar team for dinner.

Sha Ragnauth is the creator and author of Sugar Free Kids, one of our favourite blogs for sugar-free, kid-friendly recipes. We asked her to get on board with us to help you when the kids get picky in the kitchen PLUS she’s the queen of sugar-free baking!

Tell us how you came to be in the role you are today.

I started cooking sugar-free, nutritious and tasty treats for my son after realising how many child-friendly recipes were shockingly full of sugar. My friend’s children also devoured my healthy food and the recipes were in demand so I started sending photos and recipes of my creations to my “mummy network”. As many more health conscious parents became interested in making easy sugar-free snacks for their kids, I decided to create a website, www.SugarFreeKids.com.au, where I publish new delicious recipes every week for free.

What would be your best advice to someone starting out on the same career path as you?

To make your hobby into a career you are passionate about. Ask yourself: do you love it? Do you live it? Would you still do it if it wasn’t your job? If something comes naturally to you, go for it. Remember to ask for help along the way. Starting a website with social media presence needs a lot of enthusiasm, dedication and resilience.

How do you relax when you’re not busy answering questions at I Quit Sugar?

I am either with my son at the park, out with my girlfriends for drinks or cooking dinner together with my husband.

What’s the hardest thing about your job?

Eyeing off the kid’s leftover afternoon treats, only to find it’s been buried in the sandpit.

In five words, tell us the most important qualities for someone in your particular role?

Family-focused, healthy, social media savvy, and a love of food!


What do you enjoy most about working in your field?

I love engaging with other mums who see the benefit of having sugar free kids as well. Encouraging everyone to cook by providing easy recipes for “non-cooks” to prepare sugar-free treats for their children makes me happy. Also, knowing that sugar-free kids are happy, have more sustained, better concentration, improved behaviour (most of the time – this is never guaranteed with a toddler!) and are generally healthier!

What’s next on your horizon?

My website will one day have all of my recipes published and accessible for free, for those who want to cook easy recipes for their sugar free kids.

If you weren’t a recipe developer, you would have been a…

Stay at home mum (oh, I am that too? I’m pretty lucky)!

Why are you such a firm believer in the I Quit Sugar philosophy?

I have been a diabetic for 25 years so being sugar free is a way of life for me; it has to be. I now understand the impact sugar has on our bodies, our energy levels, our well-being, our mood and long term health.

The IQS Team are coming for dinner. What are you cooking for us?

I would cook pea pesto with parmesan cheats crackers and antipasto for nibbles. Entrée will be a seasonal salad with some local cheese and toasted nuts tossed through. Dinner would be a Moroccan tagine so it can cook itself while we chat. Then dessert would have to be my favourite sugar-free recipe: orange cake with cashew frosting.
