Why is children’s nutrition important? 

More and more children are presenting with complex health issues that can be exacerbated by environmental factors, a poor diet and low nutrient intake.  It’s important to support your child’s well-being with the healthiest diet possible while they are growing, especially when they are struggling with intolerances, gut problems, behavioural issues or teenage hormone imbalances.

 

Getting your children to eat the good stuff and preparing meals that are liked by all the family can be a daily challenge.  Yet supporting children‘s nutrition is vital, because healthy eating habits are a valuable life skill to guide your child into healthier adult life.

 

Changing our family food habits has taught me that it can be confusing and hard to find and introduce good nutrition. There are so many conflicting messages circulating, that sometimes it can be hard to pick through the right advice. As a qualified nutritional therapist, I can help families to eat well together, to make food fun and engage children in healthy eating on a daily basis.

 

 

 

The best way to find out how nutritional therapy can help improve your child's health

is to get in touch for a free informal consultation.
