Crushed was developed by mumpreneurs, Deborah & Jenny, after they noticed a lack of healthy snack alternatives available for older children on the British food market.
Following an extensive amount of research into nutritious snack alternatives, they launched Crushed; 100% fruit pouches that are designed to make life easier, healthier and happier for kids aged 7-11+. These fun little pouches are low in calories, have no added sugar, dairy, nuts or trace of fat, and are perfect for popping in lunch boxes or grabbing on the go.

BKD was set up in 2014 by self-taught baker, Adelle, who was inspired to help kids have fun in the kitchen after becoming a mum. What began as playful baking at home with her kids and their friends soon became a local phenomenon, after Adelle began receiving requests from local admirers asking her to host private birthday parties and make bespoke biscuits for their children.
Now a full-time business, BKD organise fun and experimental baking classes and events for children living in London. The business also sells hand-mixed baking kits online, so that children living outside of London can join the BKD fun.
