Low Omega-3 Could Explain Why Some Children Struggle With Reading

An Oxford University study has shown that a representative sample of UK schoolchildren aged seven to nine years had low levels of key Omega-3 fatty acids in their blood. Furthermore, the study found that children’s blood levels of the long-chain Omega-3 DHA (the form found in most abundance in the brain) ‘significantly predicted’ how well they were able to concentrate and learn.

The study can be read here.

How to transition your child to eat more raw food – that is tasty!!

It’s no secret that children today are being fed increasing amounts of cheap processed foods and drinks as parents become more and more reliant on fast food, while become increasingly time poor.

Some parents don’t see a problem with this. However, there are millions of parents that really do and they wish that they could change it… if only they knew how.

If you’re one of those parents, good news – help is at hand!

I’m delighted to let you know about a fabulous FREE teleseminar happening this coming Tuesday 28th May 2013. It’s called “How to Transition Your Child to Eat More Raw in 7 Easy Steps”. It’s being taught by raw food experts Karen Knowler and Nina Dench, and they’re going to be sharing what works and what doesn’t when it comes to feeding children more healthfully (quickly and easily), whether we’re talking raw food specifically or just changing from white bread to wholemeal. (The same rules apply!)

Raw food can really encourage more fun and more healthful eating; not that everything in your diet must be raw, just one or two raw meals per week can increase your nutrient value!

If this sounds like something you could use, I encourage you to sign up for the call right away because spots are limited (and don’t worry if you can’t make it live, by signing up to the call you’ll receive a free recording of the teleclass so you can listen after it happens, whenever best suits you.)

So, sign up now and reserve your spot for what promises to be an amazing call.
