Welcome to the second part of a re-run of a 3-part mini series I made a couple of years ago on the connection between your child's diet and their mental health.

In today's video I share information on the best foods your child can eat and include:

  • the top 3 nutrients essential for positive mental health
  • tips for introducing healthier foods into your child's diet
  • a simple recipe for a healthy, sweet snack for your family (see below)
  • why a healthy diet doesn't have to be expensive 

Links mentioned in the video are shared below this post. 

I'll be back again next week for the final part of the mini-series where I explore the issue of comfort eating, and what to do if you think your child is using food to avoid having to really experience their 'big' feelings. 

 

 

Warmest wishes
