Some food items are chock full of preservatives meant to extend their shelf life, while others are snap frozen on arrival and use the cooler freezer temperatures as a natural preservative.

While some items look like they’ve been freshly picked, in actuality they may have been sitting on the shelf for a month or two – you never know. The danger of preservatives is that the long-term effects have not always been tested to their full extent, so it could be difficult to estimate what these chemicals could do to our bodies in the long run.

It is for this reason that locally grown, fresh produce is the best and still maintains its nutritional value, even when snap frozen.

The Eyes Have It

We eat with our eyes first, so when it comes to planning a healthy party menu, consider presentation. Healthy food should bring vibrant colour to your party table, so capture nature’s magic with clever food styling & presentation.
