An engaged community of moms interested in healthy, natural and sustainable living is waiting to meet your business – and we’d love to connect you.
Become a Healthy Moms Participating Business
Healthy Moms is a marketing company that connects local and online businesses offering health-focused, natural, or sustainable products and services with their ideal customers.
Qualifying businesses can reach a targeted audience of thousands of moms who are looking for businesses like yours – and are ready to buy.
In 2012, Toronto-based nutritionist (and mom of two) Aviva Allen, created the Healthy Moms Facebook group for moms and and moms-to-be interested in healthy and natural options for their growing families.
The group has grown steadily since then and is now an engaged community of over 19,000. Along the way, it became clear that members wanted to be connected with businesses that aligned with their values and lifestyle – and so, in early 2016, Aviva introduced the Healthy Moms Discount Card.
With thousands of card holders and hundreds of member businesses, the Healthy Moms Discount Card inspires moms to make healthy and more sustainable choices for their families AND helps health-focused and eco-friendly businesses grow and thrive.

“This year, 24 Healthy Moms spent over $5000 on sustainably stylish second hand goods at iSpy using their Healthy Moms Discount Card!
The positive publicity of our association with the Healthy Moms brand goes well beyond the numbers, though. Our presence at HMT Marketplace events, and personal participation in the Facebook community all dovetail with the Healthy Moms ‘stamp of approval’ to build our brand’s reputation as a conscious, green option for local families.”

Have questions about becoming a member business? Let’s answer them. If you’re wondering about anything we haven’t answered below, please feel free to contact us.
Q: What are your guidelines around the discount/incentive a business offers? Is a discount mandatory to be listed?
A: While some type of promotional offer is mandatory, a discount on products/services tends to be the best incentive for our cardholders. We recommend an ongoing (as opposed to one-time only) discount, whenever possible, and a minimum of 10-15% off.
The greater the incentive, the more effective it will be in sending Healthy Moms your way, however, we understand that the discount you offer also needs to make financial sense for your business. We will happily share industry comparables with you, and help you come up with a strategic offer you – and our cardholders – can feel good about.
Q: Why do I have to pay on top of the discount I provide? Isn’t that payment enough for joining?
A: Think of it this way. The discount you offer is the consumer’s incentive to try you out and continue to buy from you, whereas your membership fee provides the connection to thousands of your ideal customers. Promoting our partners, getting discount cards into the right hands, and engaging with our active community of moms takes time, resources and expertise, which is what your membership fee pays for.
Q: What is the $45 set-up fee for? Do I have to pay it every year?
A: There is a fair bit of work that goes into getting each business set-up on our website and mobile app. It also includes a share in our active Facebook group with over 19,000 members and an announcement in our monthly email newsletter. You will only pay this once when you first join.
Q: Can I cancel my membership?
A: When you sign up, you are committing to one year of promotion through Healthy Moms. While you can choose not to renew once that year is up, we do not offer refunds of any kind.
Q: Can I change my plan partway through the year?
A: Yes – if you decide you’d rather reap the benefits of a higher membership level, you can upgrade mid-year by contacting us. Unfortunately, downgrading of your membership is not an option until your membership is up for renewal.
Q: Can I change my promotion or discount?
A: While we don’t recommend frequent changes, you may adjust your promotion so long as it’s not within six months of joining and we still feel it’s beneficial to our cardholders. Other information – such as address, promo code, and image changes– can be adjusted as necessary throughout the year.
Q: What areas do you currently serve?
A: We currently provide listings for brick and mortar businesses in Toronto and surrounding areas (including Burlington, Oakville, Milton, Brampton, Mississauga, Vaughan, Markham, Scarborough, Pickering, Ajax, Whitby and Oshawa) as well as Vancouver and surrounding areas (including Burnaby, Coquitlam, Delta, Langley, Maple Ridge, Bowen Island, New Westminster, Port Moody, Richmond, Surrey, White Rock and Victoria) and the greater Los Angeles area.
If our members can order your products online or you offer virtual services, your business may also be eligible to be listed with Healthy Moms. Currently available for Canadian businesses and US based online businesses.
Q: My business is online – or outside of the areas listed above. Can I still sign up?
A: If your business is online and based in Canada or the US, absolutely. If you are a retail location or offer a service in a specific location that’s not listed above, send us an email and we’ll let you know if we think it makes sense to join, or put you on our list so you’re the first to know if/when we expand into your area.
Q: I’m part of a multi-level-marketing company (MLM). Can I join Healthy Moms?
A: At this time, we are not accepting applications from any MLM businesses. This is for a variety of reasons, but ultimately, the concept simply does not work with our business listing model. Therefore, we ask that MLMs not apply for membership at this time.
Q: Do you offer additional promotional opportunities over and above what’s included in your membership packages?
A: Yes! If you’re looking to make a greater impression on moms interested in healthy living and natural/sustainable options for their families, Healthy Moms can help through:
