Are you worried your child has a weight problem?
It’s not always easy to see or admit that your child is overweight or obese. You may not even realise until a comment was made, either to you or your child about their size.
Once a diagnosis of anything underlying these conditions has been ruled out, you’re kind of left on your own. There’s no real guidelines and very little support.
Where do you start? Google land is confusing and overwhelming. So much information, most of it unhelpful and lots of it quite unrealistic.
Diagnosed allergies or suspected food intolerances?
You’ve been told what foods your child can’t eat…with no real suggestions as to what they CAN eat.
You suspect that food may be triggering some symptoms but you’re really not sure and an elimination diet is all too hard. Is it necessary to take out entire food groups? Or is there a better way, where we can just identify the foods that are the triggers. (Yes there is!)
Are you managing constant tantrums and meltdowns, that other kids seem to have grown out of?
Food can have a pretty powerful effect on our mood sometimes a meltdown is the outcome.
You are not a bad parent (you’re awesome by the way!)
They’re a bad kid (they’re awesome too, you just might not always think that!)
It’s just that we might need to look at what is triggering this behaviour. In susceptible kids, certain chemicals found naturally and not so naturally in foods can trigger these behaviours. It could be what they are eating and also what they are not eating, so nutrients they are missing out on. Particularly if they are fussy.
Identifying the underlying food triggers is step one in your journey. This is where the Food Sensitivity Testing will help. How to have these conversations to get your kids on board with the changes is step two and that’s what Healthy Natural Kids is all about.
Empowering kids to be involved in their health choices helps create lasting changes.

HEALTHY NATURAL KIDS
4 Week Program $147
Helping you make the changes when your child has health challenges.
Healthy Natural Kids Program supports you through the changes when your child has their own health challenges.
What can help and what won’t.
Because your kids are worth it.
When it comes to making changes to your kids nutrition, we need to talk to them about WHY. Not in a lecturing, boring and sciencey way but about how they FEEL. WHY some foods make them feel good and WHY some foods don’t.
Conversations, Small Changes and Nutrition
Whether it’s your child’s weight or their behaviour, I will share with you the conversation starters and strategies you can use to make these changes. Even the smallest changes to some less healthy habits will make a big difference for your child. It’s never too late to start.
Let me start by saying that no child should ever go on a diet. Growing children need a variety of nutrients and the energy to get them through their busy days. Making changes to your family’s habits may seem overwhelming, but rather than focusing on big scary changes, take baby steps. Make small positive changes every day and focus on being healthy and feeling good, rather than on weight, body shape or mood and behaviour.
The Healthy Natural Kids Program is for kids and parents to open up a conversation about what it means to be healthy.
Some of the key topics we cover in this program include:
For parents I also touch on the rise of disordered eating and when to see further help.
Why do we need to have these conversations with our kids?
As modern life gets faster and busier, for many reasons our children are experiencing adverse impacts to their heath at an early age. These poor health outcomes often lead to loss of self esteem, which can in turn affect academic and social functioning, often continuing into adulthood.
Good nutrition can positively impact all of these outcomes, just by starting today.
