Healthy food, alert brains, even temper – helping your children adjust to school days.
Healthy food routines are crucial for supporting your children to be alert in class and not break down into tears or tantrums after the school pickup bell. The long lovely days of the school holidays are over and adapting to a tighter routine can take some time and struggle.
Planning high quality and kid friendly meals and snacks can really serve to support this transition, both for your child and for you. Children come home exhausted in the first few weeks back at school. The potential for arguments, tears and winging is high. Remaining calm and supportive can be challenging for any caregiver in the face of disobedience or multiple children with varying emotional needs.
Children's nutrition - what role does a healthy microbiome play?
You know as much as I do that children should try a wide variety of foods and eat lots of fruit and vegetables. You know that they should consume carbohydrates such as grains, some protein such as eggs, fish or meat and include good oils found in nuts, avocados, olive oil, coconut oil and fish.
But I am guessing that if you're taking the time to read this then it could be that you are already providing your child with a healthy diet but you still have some concerns and questions about their health.
My daughter was invited to a gorgeous and inspiring birthday party this week. A very health conscious Mum created a memorable day for her daughter and friends with magical decorations but above all REALLY HEALTHY PARTY FOOD. Healthy birthday parties? They are possible!
