About a month ago I launched an online shopping experience for people with food allergies, celiac, or other dietary restrictions. The shop is called Handled With Care. To celebrate the launch, and thank all of my readers for their support, I am hosting a giveaway for one of our signature Handled With Care packages. All of the products in the shop have been carefully curated by yours truly, and the site offers a wide selection of care packages that are perfect for gifting, stocking up for your home, stuffing loot bags, supplying to your babysitter, and on and on...
So why did I start the shop?
I was fortunate to have grown up in a suburb of Toronto, where we had plenty of grocery stores and a wide selection of goods. But whenever I was outside my area it was difficult to access safe foods. My parents often stock-piled my favorite (or even less than favorite) snack foods just so they’d always be available for me.
That got me thinking, what about students from my area who went away to school in small towns and didn’t have access? Wouldn’t it be great if their parents could send them an allergy-friendly care package?
And what if you’re planning a vacation but your local store is out of their single brand of peanut-free granola bars, and you need pocket snacks? What if you could just order a box of well curated safe snacks?
And what if your friend has an allergy and you aren’t sure what to get them for their birthday? What if you could order a beautiful bundle of safe products for them to enjoy?
The what if’s went on and on. Other allergy-friendly e-shops existed but I was unsatisfied with the shopping experience. I wanted something that spoke to my needs. That’s why I launched Handled With Care.
I believe that safe products should be easily accessible and affordable for everyone, even if you don't live close to a natural foods store.
The title, Handled With Care, has so much meaning for me personally. Yes, it’s a cute pun on the fact that our products are ordered and shipped, but it also reflects the thoughtfulness and care that I have put into curation, and that each customer puts into selecting products for themselves or as a gift.
As people with food allergies, we know that a little care goes a long way.
