Holistic Nutrition for Kids

This fun holistic nutrition class will introduce kids to mindful eating, the importance of eating a rainbow of colors and how whole food can feed our brains and help us learn.  We will not focus on what is “good” or “bad” but instead what are the foods that make our bodies and brains grow big and strong and the “sometimes foods.”  Children will also learn to make a delicious shake.

Episode 150 “What’s on a food label?”

This episode 150 we are lucky enough to have Shannon Simpson from Shannon’s Tool Box and Huband Salad bar fame to discuss the joys of food labels. We take time to learn not just what the ingredients are but what they mean from serving sizes, fat to sugar and everything in between. We also have some helpful suggestions of what you should be eating. After listening here is a list of the Dirty Dozen; Strawberries, Apples, Nectarines, Peaches, Celery, Grapes, Cherries, Spinach, Tomatoes, Sweet bell peppers, Cherry tomatoes, and Cucumbers. Hope this can help you plan your next meal.
