Healthy treats

To fill that niche, Ms Buccheri started her business Cocobanan, providing a range of sweet treats without the processed sugar and fat.

Ms Buccheri said she was sick of seeing children fill up on sugary food with no nutritional value.

�Working at Domain Stadium in Subiaco, we had thousands of people to feed and they were just filling up on burgers and meat pies,� she said.

�It is just the norm to fill up on junk; sometimes people would come looking for a healthy option and we weren�t prepared for that.

�Being healthy should be the norm; it shouldn�t be a big deal.�

Since starting the business two months ago, the self-confessed foodie said she had catered for many children�s parties and events.

�We associate sugary food at children�s birthday parties to having a good time.�

Ms Buccheri said many parents were starting to become more health conscious.

�That�s where I can come in; my vegan ice creams and treats are really fun and appealing for kids.

�Parents have really opened their eyes to fuelling their children with healthier treats without the colours, preservatives, sugars and toxins that are in children�s party foods.�

Ms Buccheri�s tried and tested recipes are available in a range of flavours.

�I�m always experimenting with different ice cream flavours, which will really take off with summer on the way. My step dad is a chef, so it�s common for us to be cooking and sharing recipe ideas in our home.

�I�m excited I can provide a healthier, fun option without sacrificing taste.�
