How often do your kids say “It’s not fair!”?
Picture this scenario.
You are out at a local market with your family. It is a warm sunny day, music is playing, stalls with all sorts of offerings, crowds of families and there are food vans everywhere. The smell is wafting around you and you are getting hungry. People are walking past with all sorts of tasty and fun foods. Hot dogs, slushies, burgers, fairy floss on sticks and ice cream cones.
But….. your family has food allergies! They can’t eat ice cream, gluten, nuts or your family is vegan.
Your child watches the other kids walking by with their ice cream cones and looks up at you.
“It’s not fair! Why do I always miss out? Why do I only ever get chips or slushies? It’s not fair! I hate coming here!”. Your stress levels are rising. Why even come to the markets? It is the same disappointment every time.
Then you see a bright green van and some families lining up there, they walk by with colourful soft serve cones, smiling kids holding soft serves in red cones with colourful toppings and sprinkles like you have never seen before. You read the banner near the van “Dairy Free and Gluten free soft serve ice creams”.
Curiosity gets the better of you and you walk over to investigate.
To your delight and disbelief you find it is soft serve ice cream for allergy sufferers and vegans. You are not sure until you see that everything there is certified safe for your family and what’s more, it is REAL ice cream! You can’t contain your excitement as you are offered a taste of No Moo 4 U soft serve. You take a paddle and taste the offerings. Soft serves of different flavours, cones and gluten free waffle cones, topping and sprinkles! OMG! You can’t believe it. It tastes like real dairy ice cream. You were expecting the usual coconut flavoured soft serve served in a plastic cup.
You pass the paddle to your partner to try. The kids ask for a try too. Your heart is jumping for joy. You think, Finally! Finally something special just for you! It tastes amazing!
