When I was first diagnosed with food allergies, I found that almost all of the products that were safe for me did not taste good but were also in bland sad packaging. I was determined to make Cherrybrook Kitchen's packaging colorful and fun. I wanted to create a happy experience for those with special diets from the moment they saw our product on the shelf until they licked the last crumbs off their lips.
I believe that when kids/adults bring their own food to an event that presentation does matter. I try to collect fun tupperware containers, silverware and a cute bag to carry it all in. I put in colorful napkins and try and make the food as appealing to the eye as possible. This lifts my spirits and makes my meal or snack a complete experience.
In a more formal dinner or family event I usually plate my food on the plates everyone will be served on well before hand. Then I wrap the plate in saran wrap and place it in a safe place until it needs to be heated.
We all are so worried about the ingredients in our food but remember to have fun with how your food is packaged. You deserve it!
