There are roughly 800,000 babies born in the UK each year. Around 50% of these babies are diagnosed as having a food allergy or intolerance.

Cheryl Ryder MSc., is a busy mum of 3 young children all of whom have a Dairy Intolerance. Her 5 year old also can’t have Eggs and certain levels of Wheat and Soya.

Cheryl began Dribble Delights in order to support others like herself. The company specialises in baby food and toddler snacks, free from Gluten, Wheat, Dairy, Eggs, Nuts and Soya.

Dribble Delights’ mission is to show that free-from food can be nutritious, yummy, and easy to make!

Firstly I’d like to give you a little background information on the people behind Dribble Delights: as a mother of 3 children who are all Dairy Intolerant, I have been through a rollercoaster of emotions trying to find a way forward with this new lifestyle change.

I kept wishing that there was a range of food readily available for babies and toddlers that was completely Dairy Free. I would have to go from store to store getting the necessary ingredients, looking up recipes on the internet and trying to figure out what worked best for delicate little tummies. I was always full of guilt at thinking I should be doing more to make sure my children were having the best nutritional start in life.

What did actually happen was I would get stuck in a rut, feeding my children the same types of ‘safe’ food. Food that I knew wouldn’t upset their systems and food I could make with ease. But as each child came along it was getting harder and harder to devote as much time as I would have liked to making my own food. As a result I was relying more and more on baby jars and pouches and would regularly stand in the baby aisle checking the labels to make sure they were Dairy Free. I was surprised that there wasn’t a bigger range that offered a full variety in all the major food groups.

The idea to start Dribble Delights is to simply offer parents a solution to a life-changing issue.

Having a baby who has food allergies or food intolerances is something parents have to constantly think about before every meal. Every snack. Eating out at a restaurant. Going to a children’s birthday party. It’s never ending and can be very stressful. At Dribble Delights we aim to change that.

At Dribble Delights we want to take the stress out of mealtimes and put the fun back into exploring new and exciting foods. Keep coming back to visit us as we go on an exciting journey of bringing this to a store near you!
