WHY IS FAMILY NUTRITION IMPORTANT?
Good nutrition means getting the right amount of nutrients from foods in the right portions and combinations. Knowing how to make smart nutrition choices can help your family achieve optimum health, reducing our risks for lifestyle-related chronic disease.
Many families we meet have tried the generic tips & tricks they’ve read online or been told by a friend to try, like:
Cutting out gluten
Getting rid of dairy
Eating salads for lunch
However while these actions make us feel like we’re being proactive, the truth is if they are not tailored to support your specific families needs, they may be doing nothing to benefit their overall health!
THE RIGHT NUTRITION CAN SUPPORT:
Children’s health, behaviour and wellbeing
Fatigue and low energy
Weight loss challenges
Diabetes and blood sugar imbalances
Mental health & mood
High blood pressure, high cholesterol and heart disease
Allergies, intolerances and food sensitivities
