Mum makes healthy eat­ing eas­ier

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Business -

COMO mum Tracey David­son was so se­ri­ous about her child’s eat­ing habits she de­cided to make it her busi­ness – lit­er­ally.

The 28-year-old launched Ad­ven­ture Snacks in 2014, which spe­cialises in a range of home­made or­ganic dried fruit and nut prod­ucts.

The mother of one has just been nom­i­nated for two awards in the AusMumpreneur Awards, which recog­nise Aus­tralian mums in busi­ness.

Ms David­son said her mis­sion was to make healthy eat­ing eas­ier for both chil­dren and par­ents, par­tic­u­larly those with al­lergy con­cerns.

“I have tried to cater to the nut-free mar­ket with mums say­ing it is so hard to find nut-free prod­ucts,” she said.

“It is not some­thing that was around when I was a kid in school, but seems to be some­thing that has taken over.

“I have even had mums who have told me the list of things par­ents can’t give their kids to take to school is ever-ex­pand­ing and it makes it harder for them to plan lunches.”

With some schools in­sist- ing on ‘pack­ag­ing-free lunches’, Ms David­son said that was help­ing her busi­ness to grow, but was mak­ing life tough for par­ents.

“It is be­com­ing harder for par­ents to know what to put in lunch­boxes,” she said.

“When you are mak­ing lunches five days a week, you are al­ready strain­ing to fill them and then you have to think, ‘does it have nuts or egg or pack­aged stuff?’ It’s be­com­ing a bit more of a task for par­ents.”

The AusMumpreneur Awards will be an­nounced in Mel­bourne on Septem­ber 5.
