Event type: Ages 18+
What and how we eat influences how we feel and function, as well as our ability to learn and focus. But feeding a family can be challenging! This workshop will outline some of the research on the food-brain connection and focus on simple dietary strategies that help kids without leaving parents exhausted. Participants will walk away with nutritional resources to implement right away to help kids calm down, be less anxious, focus better, feel better and function their best. Ticket price includes a copy of Jess Sherman's book, Raising Resilience.
Jess Sherman became interested in the impact of food on behaviour and learning when she was a high school teacher. She is now a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, and supports families struggling with learning, development and mental health issues. She is also the author of Raising Resilience - 36 ways to help your kids relax, learn, and grow, which outlines a nutrition plan that supports better learning, mood and wellness for kids. Jess also works with the team at the Ottawa Integrative Health Centre and is the mom of three.
