If you have any child health questions you would like answers to, go ahead and send them to me. I will answer them from the point of view of a holistic health coach.
I know a lot about therapies that your health care provider might not have mentioned to you. I'm also very much into healing with proper nutrition that targets the specific health concern, I have a lot of knowledge on this subject that I will be happy to share with you.
And of course questions on nutrition and diet, not only health issues.
This is your chance on this Nutrition for Kids website to get answers to specific health questions and nutritional concerns.
Start by reading other people's questions or simply jump straight to where you can submit your own!
Also, here is something one mother to a 7 year old asked me:
Q: "What can I tell my parents when they ask why I don't want them to give my son sweets and cookies? He is very skinny so their argument is that he doesn't run the risk of becoming fat. And they also say, "you too ate a lot of candy as a kid and look how well you turned out".
A: I know its hard when people around us don't share the same views on feeding our kids as we do. But you are the parent so this time you will have to be a little strict with them, even if they are your own parents!
I think the easiest answer others often understand is that cookies and candy is so bad for children's teeth. But if you want you could of course also say that you don't want him to get used to eating sweet snacks, and hope that they will respect this.
Thanks for contributing to this Child Health Questions page. I really appreciate it. It's great when a website is a little more interactive and more fun. Lots of love to you!
If you would like to talk to me personally, I could schedule a health and nutrition consultation for you. Just contact me if you would like to do that.
