Katia Pacioretty & The Incredible Plantified Liquid Gold
Have you ever seen the launch of something major and thought, I wish that was around when my babies were small…
Feeling alone and craving a suckling-reprieve from the never-ending work breastfeeding required, I was painfully ready for nipple peace from that priceless liquid gold production. Well, here’s the most MAJOR thing I wish I had during my five consecutive breastfeeding years (throw a pregnancy in there, too). A local mama has the solution and will soon be on the rise to becoming the next Jessica Alba of the organic baby frontier, and her husband might be able to retire on HER creation!
Enter Katia Pacioretty. Yes, our VEGASMAMAS recognize her last name, wife of our beloved Vegas Golden Knights’ Max Pacioretty. Mama to four beautiful, bouncing boys and plant-based, organic-aware super mama, Katia is an ex-pro tennis player with a degree in sports management and has studied Naturopathic nutrition. Needless to say, Katia likes to be productive.
Along with Delphine Marinaro & Sophie Godbout, this trifecta of mamas (and their hubbies) are changing the face of formula. They created a plant based milk for babies and children that’s 100% natural, plant based, dairy free, GMO free, gluten free, nut free, soy free and totally organic. No chemicals, no additives and nothing artificial, a milk made from real whole foods. I know, it’s a mouthful and we are rejoicing over every nutrient…especially that LATTE provides precious vitamins & minerals for the growing body & mind. “My boys all drink it, especially if they don’t get a good meal, I can rest assured knowing they receive all the nutrients through LATTE. I love to mix it in smoothies or yogurt,” Katia tells us.
“I created this product with my two best friends, one is a lawyer and naturopath by vocation, the other a dental surgeon who grew up learning from her naturopath father. We are all aware of the benefits of healthy foods and the increasing difficulty it is to provide properly and easily for your family. My parents raised me with an awareness of the importance of quality, healthy food via their European home cooking. Creating The LATTE Co. was a long process and a dream realized, it took us over two years and we are thrilled to finally launch it. Currently, we are working on a newborn formula I’m absolutely ecstatic about, we see it becoming available before the end of this year.”
“After having four boys and breastfeeding all of them, when I would finish nursing there wasn’t anything on the market that met my standards for baby milk as so many products have sugars and additives and gums or it’s soy or dairy. A few of my children have dairy allergies so I always struggled to find something that will be beneficial for them and keep them healthy,” Katia tells VEGASMAMAS.
Just for starters, let’s take a look at The LATTE Co. and their bounty. You know the best part? LATTE is designed for everyone, from babies to mature top athletes:
Bebe Latte; babies 12-24 months
Kiddo Latte; children 24 months & older
Bebe Latte; infants 6-12 months (coming soon)
Instant Latte | All Purpose; for the whole family, add to coffee, smoothies & recipes (coming soon)
Mamma Latte | Pregnancy/Breastfeeding (coming soon)
Athletic Latte; for athletes (coming soon)
“Our goal is to provide for children the best product possible, provide for them the best that’s out there. We want all children (and adults) to be healthy & thriving.”
Gratitude to Delphine & Christian Marinaro, Sophie & Charles Girard and, of course, our local heroes, Katia & Max Pacioretty, for your perseverance in turning old school formula into a plant-based drink that provides more calcium than cow’s milk.
Halle-liquid-plant-lujah! It’s never too late, my six & eight-year old sons will soon begin taking Kiddo LATTE. Thank you Katia, now this is something you can sink your teeth, or gums, into…with nutrient delight.
