First free-from snack box launched

A pioneering health food company has launched the first range of tasty allergen-free treats everyone can enjoy.

An estimated two million people in the UK are living with a diagnosed food allergy barring them from countless snacks others take for granted. To give people greater choice, UK-based Healthy Nibbles is now offering a snack box free from all the 14 major food allergens.

Company founder Sara Roberts said: "Healthy Nibbles is committed to making the healthy choice the easy choice.

“With the number of people suffering from food allergies on the increase, we felt that we could be doing more. We are excited to launch the UK's first free-from snack box, which is free from all 14 major food allergens and makes snacking more inclusive."

Healthy Nibbles have always offered nut and gluten-free options but decided this was not enough and launched a new free-from snacking option.

Sara Roberts works with partners including Creative Nature, Eat Real and NOMO to ensure the nibbles are free from allergens but packed with flavour.

Founder of Creative Nature and Anaphylaxis/Teal Campaign Ambassador Julianne Ponan said:

"As a person who has lived with severe allergies my whole life to peanuts, tree nuts, sesame and many more.

"This new box, free from the top 14 major allergens by Healthy Nibbles is perfect in allowing me to find new snacks that I wouldn’t have thought about before.

"I am so glad that Creative Nature is one of the chosen brands in the box. Our Banana Bread and Gnawbles make it easy for all to enjoy delicious food without any 'may contains'."

Lauren Leisk founder of Fodilicious added: "We are delighted to be able to supply our Cookie Buttons to Healthy Nibbles to feature in their free-from snack boxes. At Fodilicious we’re passionate to produce 100 per cent natural gut-friendly snacks which are also suitable for a range of food allergies and intolerances. It’s great to be able to collaborate with Healthy Nibbles to meet this growing market need."

The free-from snack boxes come in a variety of sizes retailing from £14.99.

Notes to Editors

The Healthy Nibbles story began when its Founder, Sara, was at her father’s hospital bedside. Hungry, at 3 am, she found that the only food available was from a vending machine. A poster next to the machine warned her ominously that “diabetes and obesity kill.” But the machine offered only the usual selection of crisps, chocolate bars and fizzy drinks; there were no healthy choices. Frustrated by this juxtaposition, and alongside her personal wellness journey, Sara developed the concept of Healthy Nibbles. Today, she is leading the charge by bringing healthy out-of-home choices to UK offices, travel hubs and letterboxes.

The need for Healthy Nibbles is clear and simple, yet urgent. Rising levels of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease are placing significant burdens on the UK economy. Businesses are losing 97m workdays annually due to poor diet. The NHS is at breaking point. The time for preventative healthcare is now.

Healthy Nibbles are committed to enabling healthier choices, providing an opportunity for people to make positive lifestyle choices beginning with their health. Our goal is to help companies and organisations improve their culture, pioneer new workplace wellness ideas thereby increasing health, happiness and productivity.

As a business, Healthy Nibbles is built with strong foundations and robust principles. We are made up of a team of skilled people who have similar goals and ambitions, committed to building a sustainable business with purpose.
