    When it comes to a child’s behaviour, food plays a big role. A balanced diet is important for proper brain growth and development, and while deficiencies in certain nutrients can affect a child’s mood and behaviour, keeping their blood sugar levels stable is equally important.

    Have you ever felt the effects of mild dehydration? Symptoms are typically headaches, lethargy, poor concentration and of course, feeling thirsty. We all know it’s important to stay hydrated, particularly during the summer when it’s hot.

Especially when they feel free and safe to explore.  Getting my kids involved

  • If there is one smell that brings back happy memories of my childhood, it’s the smell of wild garlic. It grows in abundance along the road by my childhood home and always reminds me of Spring. Wild garlic works brilliantly in soups and salads. It makes an amazing pesto and, during Spring, is one of the most versatile condiments in my kitchen. Pesto isn’t just for pasta, however. It also makes an amazing dip for
  • Pancakes are a staple in my house. With endless possibilities to add multiple nutrient-dense ingredients, they can make a nutritiously-complete meal. Pancakes are perfect if your child doesn’t eat a wide-variety of foods. It’s funny but no matter what I put in my pancakes, my kids will always eat them!
