Real Parents, Real Meals with Denise, the Founder of Partake Foods
This week we are talking to one cool mama. Please meet Denise, she is the Founder and CEO of Partake Foods. Partake Foods are healthy snacks AND allergy-friendly snacks, all rolled into one. Sound exciting? Yes, it does! If you are a food allergy family, you know it’s not easy to find foods that are healthy, allergy-friendly and tasty. Denise is on a mission to make allergy-friendly foods enjoyable for everyone. If you are a follower of this REAL MEAL series I bet you know why we wanted to chat with Denise about her family’s food view*.
Help us thank her for sharing her time with a follow
on Insta! So over to Denise. How does she approach food and
nutrition at home?
You never know what’s sticking so keep talking about food
- Talk to your child about food, what
they eat, and what the benefits are. You never know what is going to stick. The
other day my daughter, Vivienne, said “well, I can’t have any more juice, that would be too much sugar”.
…but say the right things
- Especially when you have a little
girl. I hear people talk all the time about diets and calorie counting. I try
to focus on nutritional aspects of food and the benefits of what we eat.
Get kids involved
- Habits form from an early age, and
that palate informs your future with food. Involve your kids in food choices
like what is for dinner.
Get your kids excited about food! One way to
do this is get them involved in cooking. Vivienne’s favorite job is to mix!
Sounds like perfect help to us!
Everything in moderation
- You can have veggies. You can have
cookies! Vivienne is the Chief Taste Tester at Partake Foods, where all of our
cookies include fruits and veggies in every bite.
Vivienne shares a favorite with her mom, the Double
Chocolate Chip cookies.
Be inspired by your kiddos!
- Vivienne doesn’t realize she is
the inspiration for Partake. She does know that the cookies in the grocery
store are ‘mommy’s cookies’.
So what’s for dinner?
These REAL DINNER families seem to share a
love for tray dinners! Denise puts it all on a pan and there you go, a super
yummy and easy dinner.
Denise says: To all the blog readers out
there, please never boil a brussel sprout. Preparation is key! If you don’t
think brussel sprouts are yummy, you need to try this recipe.
Ingredients: Salmon, olive oil, salt, brussel
sprouts and/or broccoli
- Set the oven to 425 degrees.
- Prepare the broccoli and brussel sprouts by cutting off the ends/stalks. Place in a bowl. Drizzle with a splash of olive oil and salt and mix together.
- Put on the baking sheet next to the salmon (season salmon with salt and pepper after rubbing with olive oil).
- Roast for 20 minutes, depending on what temperature you like your salmon.
- That’s it!
