Mum makes healthy eating easier
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.
