Deborah Lowther

I am mom to three tween daughters and wife of 15 years to entrepreneur Stuart Lowther who founded Life Science Nutritionals (LSN) and created the IronKids and Adult Essentials Gummy Vitamin brands. After only 5 years in business his first company, LSN, made Profit Magazines Top 20 Fastest Growing Company in Canada and in 2013 he cracked the Top 10 and in 2014 held the #2 spot!

My background is in journalism, having written a regular column for my community newspaper while in high school and starting out in the Journalism program at Carleton University. For 5 years we worked side by side as I created IronKids and Adult Essentials websites, wrote content, managed both Facebook pages, twitter accounts and handled the company’s marketing, media, special events and donations.

In 2015 LSN was sold and we began a new business Boomer Nutrition, aimed at adults in their 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and better. We are still focused on encouraging healthy active living and welcome you to join us on this exciting new journey!

Through our businesses we are passionate about giving back to the community and supporting events that promote active families.  At home we are passionate about raising our daughters to be healthy and active while sharing our love for real food, the outdoors and helping others raise healthy, active kids.

Our daughters are avid triathletes, dancers, gymnasts, skiers, runners, swimmers and all round active outdoor kids and we are usually right out there with them! I have always been a runner and from a young age, we took the kids with us on family 5k’s. Now all 3 are eager for Summer so they can train for a 10km race! It is becoming clear that they are now better runners than me . . . I am still in training to keep up with THEM : )

The kids have encourage us to try new things – in 2013 both Stuart and I competed our first ever triathlon.  The Olympic triathlon in July was our warm up for the Half IronMan distance later that same summer. Nothing like a 2km swim, 90km bike ride and 21km run in your 40’s to keep you young and test your strength and endurance.

Follow me on twitter, Pinterest and Facebook for ideas to get kids active and quick healthy recipes that work for our busy family.

    Congratulations on your family’s success – both personally and professionally! What an accomplishment to run a successful business promoting health, and still have time to “walk the talk” and have a healthy, active family. You are great role models for your children and for other families and parents.

    Glad to have found your blog. You’ve got some great posts for those of us also striving to raise healthy kids. This week, I’m confronted with a choice to send my child with a packed lunch or let her buy lunch in the school cafeteria with the other first graders. While the cafeteria menu isn’t bad (a fruit and a veggie are included each day!), there are some items I’d prefer to avoid. Your blog is giving me a little more gumption to educate my child about why I don’t want her to have the school lunch on days when they serve chips or fries. Thanks for the motivation!

    Thanks so much Lisa! I do believe education is the key, but I still have an 8 year old that would eat candy for breakfast, lunch and dinner if I wasn’t looking! My kids are learning good food first. We still enjoy the odd order of french fries and have ice cream for dessert – balance is always a goal : )
