growing awareness by New Zealanders of the benefits of making healthier food choices has seen local food business Healthkicks experience significant growth over recent months. Owned and operated by Christchurch women Ricki and Jessie, who took part in the New Zealand reality TV show MKR, Healthkicks focuses on healthy eating. Prior to launching Healthkicks in April 2015, the pair spent many hours tasting, testing and developing a series of salads that met their criteria for nutrition and flavour, and which they believed people would enjoy. “We wanted to provide healthy options for everyday people,” says Ricki. “Everyone’s busy these days and as a result they sometimes find it quicker and easier to get fast foods, which are often unhealthy. We wanted to change that culture and offer healthier options.” Their fresh, tasty salads can be purchased in takeaway containers, which hold a generous portion of up to 500 grams for $10. The salads

can also be vacuum-packed, so they will last longer in the fridge. The Healthkicks platters are ideal for family get-togethers and parties. And as a healthy sweet treat Healthkicks has the delicious Snickers slice. Items are ordered through the website,, with free delivery throughout the Christchurch area– minimum purchase $30. Orders placed by 6pm will be delivered the following day, Monday to Friday. Orders are also delivered nationwide. “We are finding that customers are ordering a week’s worth of salads on a Monday so they are set up for the week,” says Ricki. “Our food speaks for itself. As well as vegetables and proteins it contains healthy carbs, so it keeps you full.” Healthkicks also has a shop at 104 Staveley Street Avonhead, phone 342 9541, where customers can purchase items or pick up their orders. Open Monday 9am-1.30pm, Tuesday to Friday, 6.30am-1.30pm. Follow them on their Facebook page for special offers and menu updates.
