I get very excited by people who are passionate about making healthy food more accessible to the people of Melbourne, so you can imagine my delight at meeting Kate Stewart and her team at Healthy BYTe catering.
Catered events and meetings can be tricky for the health conscious and people with dietary intolerances, but it doesn’t have to be that way anymore thanks to these bright young things.
Kate launched Healthy BYTE in February this year as the healthy catering arm of Bright Young Things (BYT), which she founded five years ago when she was just 25 years old. This girl is kicking some serious goals, isn’t she?
Kate and her team wanted not only to eat healthier food themselves, but to truly understand what this means. So they engaged Emma Stirling of Scoop Nutrition and spent months brainstorming, learning, tasting and collaborating.
You can buzz word a menu, but we wanted to make sure it’s authentic. We’re about making healthy sexy and fun.
The focus of Healthy BYTe is on nourishing, feel good food. Each recipe is put through nutritional testing, from the ingredients to the portion sizes. It’s all about empowering guests to make healthy food choices.
The menus are seasonal with a focus on provenance, with everything from healthy breakfast items to help you start the day right, sweet and savoury snacks, as well as more substantial items, you can even have a fresh juice or smoothie bar if you like! Bespoke menus can also be created and tailored to specific requirements and wellness goals.
Healthy BYTe is proving a hit with the corporate market, with older men who may not actively seek healthy options enjoying the nourishing food that is being put in front of them.
With the logistics to take Healthy BYTe to the masses, there’s no doubt these Bright Young Things are onto a very good thing.
