Food creates the foundation of health for a child through adulthood. As a parent, the goal is to feed them with the right foods to help them achieve their goals in school, attain a strong immune system, and develop their bodies with health at the forefront. Every morsel of food acts as the fuel to energize the body and to strengthen the body.
A child’s food choices are related to brain development and growth, immune support, mental clarity, and focus. As parents, we strive to provide our children an education that will open their future to unlimited possibilities. The emphasis is on the best schools and teachers, leaving the kitchen as an afterthought.
Brain development and immune function thrive with specific nutrient combinations for optimal health. For cognitive thinking, learning, temperament and creating a strong immune system, essential fatty acids (EFA’s) become the first step towards nourishing the brain and the body. EFA’s are a balanced ratio of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, they need the assistance of vitamins B6, A, C, E, magnesium, zinc, copper, and selenium to successfully affect the body. Ideally, these nutrient combinations are received from foods, as opposed to supplements. EFA's are readily available in raw nuts and seeds such as walnuts and hemp seeds, wild salmon, avocados, and brussels sprouts.
A typical day for most children includes some healthy choices of fruit and vegetables, but it also includes several “quick alternatives” such as processed and fast food. Sugar, flour, and dairy are all interpreted by the body as a sugar and produce a false erratic energy that can disrupt our ability to focus and learn.
Nutrients work synergistically to promote learning and development.
