This year, top naturopath and teen nutrition expert, Lucinda Miller will be talking about Feeding the Brain on Saturday 16 February (before the half-term pick up) at 11am with coffee at 10.30am, in Robson Fisher.
The rollercoaster of teenage years (for both parents and their children) can be compounded by the rise in anxiety and mood swings, eating disorders, poor focus, metabolic problems and immune challenges. Recent medical research has found that when you nourish bodies, minds and souls with proper food, you are building the health and resilience needed to stay happy and well – even when life sends its inevitable challenges. A child’s brain and body development continue until they are well into their twenties so what they eat now lays down the foundations for their future health.
Lucinda will be talking about the latest research on the gut-brain connection, the importance of the right fats, why at least ‘5 a day’ is crucial, as well as the latest scoop on additives and artificial sugars. Learn how to build a positive relationship with food, that will have huge benefits for long-term health and wellbeing.
Lucinda Miller is the founder of NatureDoc and runs a team of UK-wide nutritional therapists specialising in child and teen nutrition. She has been practising as a naturopath for 20 years, is qualified in Functional Medicine and is the author of the bestselling book The Good Stuff.
