Fatherhood is about trying to be a guiding light for my children.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there! To honor this special day, we sat down with the dads at Inika, and learned more about what fatherhood means to them. Inika's CEO Carl-Gustaf tells us more about his journey as a father of three amazing children, and shares some words of wisdom and tips for all fathers out there. 

What does fatherhood mean to you?

Fatherhood is the greatest gift of all, and I'm lucky I've been blessed three times. To me fatherhood is about trying to be a guiding light for my children, to nurture them and to love them endlessly while trying to support them to become the best possible versions of themselves when growing up. It's the hardest job and the most satisfying at the same time.

What is your best health advice for fathers?

Not only for fathers but, here are some guiding principles which I strive to live by. To stress less and laugh more, life is too short for taking things too seriously. Exercise as often as you can and balance that with enough sleep (the sleep part I'm working on;)). Nurture your body with healthy food and drink enough water. And lastly exercise for gratitude, remind yourself every day of the things you are grateful for.

What is your favorite go-to recipe for busy days?

Banana pancakes - It's been and is still a favorite amongst the kids and something we enjoy cooking together.

What has been the most challenging part of fatherhood for you?

When my eldest son got ill with type 1 diabetes at the age of 3,5. It took me a long time to come to terms with why and how it happened to him. Why this unfairness. While still something I everyday wish I could take away from him, it has also had several positive impacts on the way we live our daily life in health and gratefulness for being here and now.

And the most rewarding?

Seeing my kids grow up to the fine boys and girls they are today, to see them achieve things they put their minds towards achieving, being silly and having fun together and of course the unconditional love that we have towards each other.

What are you the proudest of in your fatherhood journey?

That our children all carry an amazing eagerness and positivity towards life, each other, the future and all there is to explore in this world!

Share a fatherhood mantra you live by.

The best thing you can spend on kids is time.

Love,
Inika Superfoods
