Clever Packaging: Food for Thought (6 pics)


As we heard from Jamie Oliver’s TED Talk last week, there needs to be an “all-out assault on our ignorance of food.”

Chinese designer Daizi Zheng created a range of healthy snacks packaged to look like drugs and junk food.

Stereotype is about helping people eat more healthier through their everyday habits.

By giving the good food a little make over, it could contribute the availability of healthy food and encourages people to make a change for their everyday life.” -Daizi Zheng
