nutrition for kids

Is trying to feed your kids healthy food leaving you feeling defeated?

Are you confused about what to feed your growing toddler? Are you worried your child or adolescent isn’t making healthy decisions about what to eat? Are you lost and confused about how to manage a healthy meal around you & your family’s busy schedule?

Helping kids make nutritious choices

Why does it feel like feeding our kids gets so complicated once they start eating solid foods? As parents and caregivers, we agonize over whether they’re getting enough vitamins and nutrients while we try to protect them from over indulging on desserts and sweets.

Even when we know we want to feed our family healthy meals, it can be difficult to find time to put together a meal (and clean it up). The food industry offers so many shortcuts that are often packaged with preservatives and other ingredients that stray far from the natural foods our kids’ growing bodies need.

When kids don’t get enough nutrition, or over indulge in packaged foods, they can exhibit:

  • Problems with focus & concentration
  • Erratic mood, behavior and increased anxiety
  • Impaired growth and development
  • Picky eating
  • Digestive problems
  • Food allergies
  • Skin conditions, such as eczema and acne

Change begins with learning

When kids learn how what they eat and drink affects their bodies, they can begin to make better choices about their meals. Nutritious habits mature when choices are presented in a palatable and approachable way.
