Guest Post: Why healthy eating and supporting small goes hand-in-hand

If there’s one thing that makes healthy eating so much easier, it’s supporting small, independent brands.

Nurtured by close teams of people who are deeply committed to their customers, small businesses can focus on premium, healthy ingredients. 

That’s why over at Mighty Small, we’re all about supporting the most exciting British independent brands that offer tasty and unique food and drink.

We created our online shop in April 2020, during the first pandemic lockdown, to ensure people could still get hold of their favourite small brands as well as discover more. We’re proud to offer amazing brands like The Protein Ball Co, as healthy options for people to enjoy the flavours they love!

From working closely with our partners throughout the past year, we’ve definitely learned that supporting small food and drink brands is the way to go when it comes to eating healthy. Here are a few of the things we’ve learned along the way…

  • Healthy snacks are your best friend

  • Whoever thought snacking should be a guilt-ridden and dangerous experience, was wrong! We’ve seen many healthy snacking brands emerge in the past few years, prioritising low sugar and high protein goodies that will keep you going throughout the day. 

    A great example is The Protein Ball Co, with delicious flavours like Cherry Bakewell and Peanut Butter Protein Balls. Packed with fruits, nuts and vitamins, these are not what you think of as a typical snack…

    They’re not like potato crisps made with a glut of oil and loads of salt, they’re just tasty little bundles made with natural ingredients that will keep you going until your next meal. 

  • Free-from is for everyone 

  • Did you know that over 75% of the products available on Mighty Small are vegan, and over 80% are gluten-free?

    While this is absolutely great news to anyone who suffers from an allergy or intolerance, not all of our customers fit into that category. 

    But that doesn’t matter, because free-from food can be enjoyed by anyone, especially when it’s just as yummy (if not more!) than the alternative option. 

    According to the BBC, scientists believe that vegan diets may be associated with lower risk of heart disease, so who wouldn’t want in?

    The Protein Ball Co’s vegan products include Lemon + Pistachio and Coffee Oat Muffin

    1. Healthy Planet = Healthy People

    Loads of our brands are dedicated to making themselves as sustainable as possible, so they can protect the planet while creating delicious food and drink. 

    Whether it’s sourcing organic ingredients or using compostable packaging, these steps ensure the environment is looked after, so it can continue to look after us! 

    This includes using plant-based and vegetarian protein sources rather than traditional meat options. The Protein Ball Co uses pea and brown rice protein for their balls, which contain more protein than whole milk!

    But whatever your diet, small brands provide a wide range of options to enjoy, whilst being healthy. That’s just one of the reasons we love championing small businesses at Mighty Small.

    Since opening last year, we’ve welcomed 70 brands and 400 products, hosted exciting giveaways and shared the message of supporting independent brands to thousands of customers.

    We deliver across the UK, having sent packages from the northernmost Scottish islands down to the Channel Islands. We supply both individuals looking for a delivery direct to their homes or to gift loved ones, and also trade business (cafes, offices, shops) looking to line their shelves with exciting, small brands at wholesale volumes. Our mission is to get passionate brands into as many hands as possible!

    With 95% five-star reviews on Trustpilot, we love to provide our customers with the best of British start-up brands.
