I'm Parul, and I'm glad to share my journey of building Gladful with you —a step taken for my kids & brought alive with inspiration from my ma and grandma. Having spent 15 wonderful years in the food sector with brands like Cadbury Silk, Gems, and 5 Star, I thought I had my family's nutrition game on point. Then came a routine check-up for my little one, and I realised our diet needed much more protein than we were having every day. That's where the Gladful story began.
Meet my sibling, Manu—a dedicated foodie, an accidental CA, and a champion navigating life with diabetes and pancreatitis since childhood. Out of our shared experiences, Gladful emerged—a sincere solution for families like ours, crafted from genuine struggles.
We stumbled upon the eye-opening fact that 93% of moms, much like me before, were not protein-savvy. Our grandma stepped in and said that solutions exist in our own kitchens. She reiterated “don’t you know why I made you have sprouts every single day?’
With a nod to the wisdom of our grandmas and maa, we started building Gladful. Through trial, error, and a bit of stumble, we created a breakfast range that's not just delicious but also a powerhouse of goodness.
Our guiding principle strengthened overtime. Everyday Vegetarian Foods which are rich in protein & fibre and do not contain Maida, Trans Fats, Cholesterol, Refined Sugar.
How a Visit to the Paediatrician Changed Everything?
We're not just a group of enthusiasts whipping up food; we're a family that revels in the great outdoors and savours shared moments. Gladful isn't merely about the cuisine, it's about crafting shared experiences over delectable, nourishing meals.
So here's to Gladful—a labour of love, a journey that commenced with a little surprise at the doctor's and brought us to your kitchen. Let's relish this adventure together!
