Clever Healthy Food Packaging

Clever Healthy Food Packaging

Stereotype by Daizi Zheng is a series of creative food packaging designed to encourage people to change their bad eating habits.

The project includes carrot sticks packaged like cigarettes, blueberries in a blister pack, and celery sticks in a french fry carton.

Can clever packaging design encourage people to rethink their relationship with healthy food and gain a balanced diet?

    It’s an interesting idea that would probably get people to think about their food choices, but I wouldn’t want to see this go mainstream. Just seems like it would be a bigger waste of plastic and paper.

    My favorite is the celery packaging with the big “0% fat!”

  2. john

    sweet stuff.

  3. Paul Sample

    really creative.

  4. Tue Romanow

    Very nice!!! do you unpack the blueberries without crushing them??

  5. ajayjshah

    this post makes me hungry for carrots and celery sticks.

  6. angela

    I love it esp the carrot sticks :D Another friendly alternative.

  7. Handy

    creative ideas especially for kids i think it will be effective to encourage people to eat healthy food
    i love blueberries looks amazing

  8. Peace

    cool ideas

  9. itsbrandnew

    great idea!!!! I wish this kind of stuff was promoted more!

  10. Simplicity??

    I like the celery packaging quite a bit. But the other two packages… slick, but not good design. Blister-packing blueberries would be expensive, and make the fruit difficult to eat. (Also, the box is rather bland-looking.)

    The cigarette carrots are funny, but what is the message that’s being conveyed… carrots are an alternative to cigarettes? I think this appeals to a limited market. (Also, this would be expensive to produce.)

    These designs show creativity, but not much reality.

    UMMMM I don’t think so.

  12. shannon

    agree with simplicity. I would buy celery in a fry box over the fries, and it would appeal to kids more presented that way.
    But the blueberries makes no sense- wasted packaging, not clever, wouldn’t be inclined to eat them over a normal box of blueberries!

    I’ve been trying to light these darn carrot sticks for hours now. It’s just not working for me……

  14. kyle

    i would love to see these applied in the fast food industry

  15. aziz

    somehow when I saw “0% fat”, I read it “0% FUN” !

  16. tim

    I think it is a great creative idea.

    The only problem I have is the inefficient nature of the blueberries package. The cost per blueberry in packaging like that limits it to the utmost premium berries available.

  17. matt

    Does anyone else see a potential problem in removing ripe blueberries from “push-through” foil packaging?

    I’d prefer not to be eating blueberry puree…

    clever idea though!

  18. pt

    Gosh! I love the way the inventors brain is wired! So clever! Now why didn’t I think of that?
    Take care,

    Very clever ideas. Carrot stick kind of an odd shape, maybe more natural looking. Celery for sure. Blueberries, questionable. Those that are trying to eat healthy may also be trying to save the world of excessive packaging. Blister packs are excessive, unless of course you could come up with a green type package.

  20. Gil

    Creative designs, but in my opinion a total waste of packaging for the blueberries. Also, I’m not sure how this “shock-packaging” approach would complement sale.

  21. Lora

    I think it’s very fun and interesting
    however, I do think it’s waste of packaging ~I think the message is rather confusing for different audience ~
    the graphic design is not too good. there is still a lot of room to improve the look.

  22. Tori

    I don’t think the intention of this project was to come up with actual product packaging.
    I may be wrong, but wasn’t she making a point about how marketing and design affect our food choices? This is an artistic statement, not a pitch to celery and blueberry farmers to actually package their products this way.
    It isn’t a waste of packaging because the message is that we shouldn’t be reaching for packaged foods, but foods in their natural form instead (thereby avoiding packaging all together.)

  23. Jooj

    ok! that’s really creative and cleaver!

  24. Edd

    very distasteful and irresponsible!!! obviously none of these supposed creatives have children. What message are they trying to make here…. OK children, if you find a cigarette it’s ok to eat it and if your find tablets eat them!
