Emerson was a little girl who wasn't going to let her food allergies stop her, and decided to help other kids in the process too!
So, since I was making my own, I decided to start making them for other kids with food allergies too. I am hoping that this cookie will bring enjoyment to others that have food allergies everywhere."
Emerson is a girl who decided not to let her food allergies get her down. Not only did she learn how to bake, she created her own company! She created Sweet E’s Cookies, a cookie that is tree nut, peanut, wheat, egg, dairy and gluten free.
She has come up with the idea to package it individually wrapped and sell it for individuals that have a nut/food allergy and cannot otherwise participate in convenient treats. Her dad shares that she came up with this idea all on her own and now her parents are trying to help her with her vision.
Although there are a lot of allergen free foods majority of them are not individually wrapped and sold conveniently and accessibly.
But how many cookies can a little girl really sell on her own? She not only sold over 200 in her first week but her parents have heard so many stories of how these cookies are giving pleasure and peace of mind to individuals with food allergies.
Even better the new business venture has made Emerson feel more comfortable talking about her food allergy. And as a bonus, it has also made her take an interest in math and school work which she otherwise was not interested in! She is finding out how what she is learning is applicable to the real world with her business.
