IT WAS an interest in healthy eating that sparked Krystal Caton's idea for an innovative children's product.

The Marlborough mum created Zestio, a range of reusable pouches that parents can fill with healthy purees, homemade smoothies, yoghurts and soups to feed children.

And now the mother of two has been nominated for the National AusMumpreneur Awards.

"Zestio provides safe and convenient products for pouch feeding whilst helping you become more organised, save money and provide healthy nutritious foods to your family," Ms Caton said.

"The pouches are great for filling with homemade purees for on the go or yoghurt in school lunchboxes," she said.

"The silicone pouch topper attachment covers the pouch spout's rough areas, which can be irritating on your child's mouth and gums, allowing your baby (possibly teething) to suck safely from the pouches."

Finalists of the awards will be selected by a public vote at ausmumpreneur.com with voting closing on October 6.
