HOW BLENDI CAME ABOUT
BLENDI was created by a mum who wanted to create a healthy food product for her son growing up. This is our story, but it’s also kind of everyone’s story.
HERE’S HOW IT REALLY HAPPENED
Myself and Shane returned to Dublin having lived overseas for many years, my occupation had been an “Entrepreneur” that was all I had known, but during that time I had lost all my creativity so as a single mum I decided the only option left was to go back to college and reskill.
My college timetable meant that when Shane (14) returned home from school in the evenings if I was late he had to make his own snack and on occasions would add hot water to a pot noodles to tie him over (it was healthier than the biscuit tin but not by much).
I could see how handy the rehydration of dried foods were for teens and for working parents and as a qualified chef thought perhaps I could make a healthier version.
Food is really important, it affects you mentally and physically especially during your growth spurt and I wanted to ensure that Shane was getting what he needed during that all-important phase.
