THE STORY BEHIND LITTLE MASHIES REUSABLE POUCHES
Diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2010, Talisha Kendell was faced with a number of struggles in controlling and managing her disease. Living off a strict diet to manage the Chron’s disease, Talisha found eating out difficult and started trying baby food pouches as a convenient alternative when she couldn’t cook her own food. Intrigued by the nutritional value in commercial food pouches, Talisha set out researching the contents of what went into the pouches. Even organic and seemingly healthy baby food pouches were always filled with mostly sugary fruit, or sweet vegetables like pumpkin and sweet potato. Rarely was the meat content above 10%. Every single yogurt pouch (even the organic ones) had added sugar, and there was absolutely no guarantee that the food in the pouches was even fresh. She also found they have to use high temperatures to preserve the contents and that process decreases the nutritional value too!
Astonished by what she found, she immediately stopped using commercial food pouches. This discovery along with having the debilitating Chron’s disease was a driving force behind Little Mashies. Talisha set out making purees, soups and broths that would provide a natural cure for her illness. She was freezing the food in zip lock bags, on a mission to make her life easier whilst improving her good bacteria and gut health. Through her own journey and journey through motherhood, Talisha had a light bulb moment. Wouldn’t it be good if all parents could make their own healthy food and put it in an easy to use, transportable container.
Morphing her idea of storing homemade foods, with quality ingredients in zip lock bags with the functional aspect of a supermarket food pouch…Little Mashies was born!
