Introducing Kelsea – Picky Eater Expert!

Kelsea McLaughlin & Callum wpIntroducing Kelsea McLaughlin, ‘Recognition & Retention’ expert at Epicure and a ‘Picky Eater Expert!’

Kelsea is a Mom to 3 kiddos, with a 10-year old celiac, a 9-year old dairy-free child. All three are picky as anything! Add in two busy parents, trying to get safe, tasty, healthy meals on the table that our kids will actually eat is a challenge we face every day!

With soaring food costs and a 100% GF kitchen, Kelsea knows first hand there is no room in the budget to pay for products everyone doesn’t love, or that go to waste.

Kelsea’s GF Philosophy:

“Food is such a social ritual, and there should be space for everyone to enjoy it at the table.”

“I love helping to solve mealtime dilemmas for parents, for celiacs, as well as any other type of medically necessary dietary requirement.”

“Let me help you bring that spark back to cooking meals that the entire family can safely enjoy.”

Kelsea is in a quest for feedback from within our community!

“1) What meal do you miss and what the Epicure product(s) might accomplish it? If it doesn’t exist, I can pass that along to our Innovation Research & Development team?”

“2) Fundraisers. Did you know Epicure has a fundraising option for any initiative your school, club, sport, charity or community group are raising funds for? Every fundraiser box contains 6 meal solutions and 1 dessert mix. For every $25 fundraiser box sold, your organization keeps $10!”

On behalf of Epicure, Kelsea is also seeking ‘recipe testers’ in hopes of refining their gluten-free offerings. She would of course provide you with complimentary samples to review.
