Food safety is a major concern, particularly when you have young children. In addition, new parents are often anxious about choosing new products and can become overwhelmed through time consuming research or trial and error. In response to these concerns and experiences, a group of parents, Swiss Olaf Zilkens, Danish Camilla Simoni, Dutch Wouter de Haan, and Charis Choi from Hong Kong formed Challet Baby Care.
The idea of Challet is simple: every month a box is delivered containing Swiss-made essential products for mom and child from pregnancy up to toddler years. The products are chosen on the basis of professional recommendations, or Simoni’s career experience as an obstetrician, pediatrician, and breastfeeding counsellor, to ensure the best set of products for each development stage. Challet ensures product compliance with European standards and competitive prices before delivering the box to your doorstep.
Everything in the box has been tested for quality by both Swiss and Chinese authorities. And prices are reasonable: a Premium Box, for example, will cost RMB 888 – not much once you calculate the cost of everything that you would otherwise have to purchase separately and the time spent doing so.
Uniquely for the Chinese market, Challet also provides bilingual, professional advice through WeChat, offering new parents answers to questions such as how to establish a good sleeping routine, or how to handle sibling rivalry. The company has become a network for young families – exchanging interests and enjoying regular events like baby yoga, healthy cooking, fashion, and baby related education.
Deliveries can be ordered from the website challet.walkthechat.com or WeChat account: challetbaby
