After years of Farmers Markets, Fundraising and supplying into cooking Schools & Garden Kitchen Projects, it was becoming more and more obvious that Peeling was an issue.
So from an idea, I designed a Bladeless “Safety Food Peeler”.
Sourced a Plastic Manufacturer in Melbourne, a 3D CAD Design drawing was completed, prototype produced, matched the colours to the Kiddies Food Kutter – Red, Yellow and Blue and tested the Market.
Sold 500 in a week and mainly to Adults and Left- Handers and the Elderly (Arthritis, Dimentia)
Rebranded from Kiddies Food Peeler to Safety Food Peeler and ran off the 1st 9,000 (3,000) of each colour!
18 months later I have sold 36,000 and launched into the U.S.

What has been a major highlight for you regarding Kiddies Food Kutter?

Seeing Mums, Dads & Grandparents faces, when the delight is so obvious on 2 and 3 year old faces – that they can cut and peel safely and it works!!!
The Disability aspect has been the most rewarding, observing blind children cutting and peeling safely (The independence and pride on their faces) Just like a grown up or big brother/sister.
Autism and Fussy Eaters getting involved and having fun, learning life-skills.
Getting referrals for orders from the likes of Sally Girvan http://sallygirvan.com.au Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) in Melbourne. Making a difference!!
Wholesaling into Garden Kitchen Programmes where the children were growing the vegetables but couldn’t cut them – Now they can! Takes pressure off the teachers, with a SAFE product!
Fundraising 2 useful products – instead of chocolates and cakes
My stock is simply packed by the Montague Street South Melbourne Special School – aged between 15-20 so they do math, quality control, colour matching and take pride in their work and enjoy learning new life skills.

What has the biggest lesson that you have learnt so far with your 2 Products?

Being a workaholic and as I thrive on continual progress, ideas, results.
I had to realise that my goals/priorities are not everyone elses……….. therefore some opportunities may of dropped away because of my impatience.

How did you get started with Kiddies Food Kutter?

Kiddies Food Kutter
I have always been into healthy eating and fitness, was aware of childhood obesity/fussy eaters.
There were blunt butter knives and plastic ones that broke.
If this could cut Pumpkin it could cut everything. Even steak and sausages on a dinner – plate!

I sourced the original Pumpkin Kutter from the U.S. in the year 2000 which is patented and I have the legal distribution rights for Australia and New Zealand

This letter is to confirm Jacklyn James as our Australia and New Zealand distributor for our product called The Kiddies Food Kutter. I designed this product along with our Pumpkin Kutter in 1979 and they have been in production since 1980

I would attend local Markets and sell so many, couldn’t believe it!
I worked Full time for the next 10 years as a Corporate Accountant and almost every weekend travelled to Markets with just 1 small table and some poster (nothing like the Set Up I have today)
I sent many samples out to Cooking Schools etc., “Oh NO we couldn’t use knives” and I kept plodding on and on.
Junior MasterChef started and of course to be on the “Show” you had to be 8 years upwards, with Basic Sharp knife skills.
Mums & Dads flocked to buy these Sharp knives (in Pretty Colours) and the kids cut themselves!

Opened up my whole business!

4 years ago I took the risk to go Full-Time, though there have been MANY hiccups along the way, all is on track with my Business Plan. June 2015
