Encouraging our children to enjoy a nutrient rich diet so they develop and grow into active, bright, healthy adults can be challenging in today’s world.
Sadly, problems like obesity, asthma, eczema, acne, food intolerances, autism, ADHD, depression, digestive complaints, fatigue and sleep disturbances are all on the increase and if we don’t take action soon, the consequences will be unbearable.
Our teenagers are under considerable pressures to achieve and perform academically and socially. More and more are suffering with stress, depression, difficulties with menstrual cycles, weight gain, eating disorders and anxiety issues.
As parents, we have a huge responsibility to our children. It’s our job to help them make the right choices when it comes to food, but like other mums and dads I know how hard that can be. In fact, I’d be one of the first to admit I’ve made mistakes in the past as a result of being ill informed.
Thankfully, as I’ve found with my own daughter, it’s never too late to make a positive lifestyle change when it comes to eating habits and even though it may not be easy, it’s definitely worth it.
How can I help?
I really enjoy working with children of all ages and I find it extremely rewarding. As your Nutritional Therapist, I will work with you and your child to identify any dietary deficiencies, excesses or intolerances that may be contributing to the concerns you have about your child’s wellbeing, or that they have themselves.
Together, we will create a nutritional protocol that’s designed specifically for your child and that meets their individual requirements.
I will also provide information designed to help and support you when making food choices, following recipes, or out shopping, as well as encouraging your child to improve their eating habits with taste tests and challenges.
Working at a pace that suits you and your child, I will introduce changes that are manageable. I will also share some great tips, delicious, easy-to- prepare recipes and lifestyle advice that’s designed to support you and your child in your quest.
