About

 

As a kindergarten teacher I started noticing that many parents try very hard to get lunch boxes ready in the mornings and the results can some times be dramatic!!! Mornings can be very rough!!!

I designed, fun takeaway vegan lunch boxes for schoolers, that are not only healthy, packed with nutrition and balanced, but are originally presented with fun shapes, using the beautiful colors of nature, with the sole objective of introducing children at an early age into healthy eating habits.

I started wondering if by any chance, this could be done better, in a way that is not only comfortable for parents as well as affordable, but also made with the care and love that any parent would put in it, as well as packed with nutrients, healthy, balanced and vegan.

Bellow you can see an example of one of our boxes, the "Rainbow Unicorn Box". It is designed to be varied, nutritious and fun! With 2 sets of snacks and a fulfilling meal. Each day of the week we will be offering a different option so that it is always fun to discover what´s for lunch!

 

 

Since I started creating this project many synergies have generated along the way: parents, health care professionals, families and others who feel inspired by this beautiful objective.

This has led me to trust even more in the great value of this idea that is now presented in the form of a project, ready to be shared with thousand´s of people around the world. I firmly believe this is the perfect nutrition that our little one´s deserve and therefore trust in the potency of this project, not only because it emerges from the heart but also because it makes people more aware of other eating options.

My dream is for every school in the world to have access to this nutrition and be inspired by it´s powerful message, and I´m certainly determined to follow this dream to make it come true and become the change I want to see in the world.

 

Because of my Spanish origins I felt immediately attracted to the idea of naming this project "La Huella Foods". In Spanish "Huella" is used to define any kind of imprint that is left after an event. I feel this is in perfect alignment with the objective of the project as well as with my identity as a dual citizen: to leave a positive imprint in our planet, no matter where you come from. Why not pick the best that this duality can offer and turn it into something bigger?

There are many ways of contributing to this project, from a donation made through the Kickstarter´s campaign or even contacting us to gain knoweledge of our message and spread the word about the wonderful power of eating living fruits and vegetables.

Once the project is launched, and if the pledge kicks the 50,000 $ objective, we will be trying to make this project available as in many places as it can be possibly done, meaning that we plan on starting catering Schools in the Denver area, in the first place, since it´s where I live and the place that inspired the idea, and once we gain experience we would like to start to Franchise this revolutionary concept to make it accesible to as many people as possible.

Don´t forget to take a peak on our web site: www.lahuellafoods.com. There is a lot of work and love invested in it!

In that process we want to make people´s life happier giving the possibility to own their own franchise, or work directly with us in the foundation of this project which will be for sure quite an adventure!

Risks and challenges

One of the most challenging features of this project will be to help people understand, especially parents who are not vegan, that a fully vegan and 80% raw lunch can and will meet all of their children's nutritional needs. So, for those parents who might be concerned, I would like to assure them that their child's development is the most important thing to me.

La Huella Foods lunch boxes will contain perfectly designed meals that will not only be fun and taste delicious, but will also be nutritionally balanced by a team of expert nutritionists. Plus, opening up their lunch boxes will be something to look forward to everyday as the children discover the beautifully and creativity prepared foods inside! There is no better way to get a child to eat a wholesome lunch!

The menus will be varied daily, will be age appropriate, and each box will contain 2 snacks (one for the morning and one for the afternoon) as well as a fulfilling lunch. Each season will have a new set of menus to take advantage of farm to table foods.

Logistically, I have studied the steps necessary to obtain a food license, and researched prices and suppliers for kitchen rentals, chefs, kitchen help, rental trucks, refrigeration units and insurance.

On menu design, being a vegan and someone who works with children gives me countless ideas for beautifully creative and nutritious menus in my head. The most time-consuming challenges in this area, although ones I look forward to, are in the testing and analysis of the menus, and in the development of alternative menus for those with food allergies.

Packaging will be critical to maintain integrity of the fun food products prepared. Thankfully, not only have I found promising suppliers online who I have begun to work with, but I also live within 30-40 minutes from Boulder, CO. Many natural food companies throughout the country have been moving to Boulder because Boulder has such good food packagers. These challenges are potentially the biggest for the project as a whole, but seem quite do-able, especially with sources I have within the food industry.

In addition, the extra steps of writing ingredient lists for each menu, along with extra fun information, quotes, and quizzes will be taken to keep everything connected with this project as fun and interesting for the children and parents as possible.

Because the food itself, as well as the packaging, will have so much show-stopper appeal, the marketing will be exciting. I hold high aesthetic standards and would ideally like to have a stunning video campaign to market the company. I would like to release one new video campaign per year, each one unique unto itself, but all showing beautiful images of our earth, nature, and plant-based foods to solidify the brand, and to connect the healthy foods we eat to the beautiful planet we live on. This will explain sustainable foods in the best way possible, by showing it, which will be inspirational. Working with the videographer and graphic artist in great depth once funding is received will be very rewarding as for this Kickstarter´s campaign I have practically done all the designs, webpage and promotional video with very little help. It has been a very rewarding process where I have learned a lot from many people.

Being in education provides me with many resources for connecting with schools and parents which will help in marketing the project.

I intend to give everything I have to this project, as I have for this Kickstarter´s campaign, because I thoroughly belive in the power of this idea.

Finally, let's not forget the children themselves! Their love of their lunches and feeling how these foods help their bodies thrive will help sell the products more than anything; this is the ultimate lunch program!
