Our journey began when our son was diagnosed with an allergy to peanuts and most tree nuts. Like most toddlers his age, he is extremely active and burns through energy quickly so his snacks need to provide him with the essential fuel to help him stay active and wild. But trying to find food that was delicious and provided enough substance proved to be harder than we thought. Most options that we found that didn't contain a warning about shared equipment or "made in facilities with..." proved difficult. For the ones we did find were filled with ingredients we couldn't pronounce.
People plagued with allergies shouldn't have to live this way. These individuals have to be so careful and there is still a chance that their food could be contaminated. We didn't think this was right. There had to be a better way to live so we decided to take on the challenge of creating flavorful snack food. We began to source local pure ingredients that we could trust and felt safe giving to our young son.
