EVENT: Holistic Nutrition from Conception to College

By March 24, 2017June 10th, 2023Event Recording, Events, Healthy Pregnancy, Nutrition

Having a holistic nutrition mindset is important.  There are few variables that impact your ability to prevent disease more than what you eat every day.  This is both an empowering and daunting thought, as you’re probably also thinking right now, “What am I going to fix for dinner?”

Join us as we provide an overview of holistic nutrition that you can use to guide your daily “what to eat?” decisions.  Luckily, the basics of good nutrition are not hard, and you can apply them to anyone in your family, with individual tweaks here and there.  We’ll begin with the basics and then delve into a few specific times of life.

holistic nutrition starts earlyWe’ll talk about how three critical stages of motherhood (preconception, prenatal and postnatal) set the stage for a baby’s nutrition.  Remember, we said we’re talking about holistic nutrition, which includes more types of nourishment (physical, emotional and spiritual) that moms (and their babies) need to thrive.  Attendees will walk away with lots of how-tos that can keep them optimally nourished during these stages.  For more information on this topic, go to our article, Nutrition for Pregnancy: Thriving in 3 Stages of Motherhood

Then, we’ll leap to the teenage years, which is a critical time for nutrition because children develop almost as fast during the adolescent/teenage years as they do during early life.  And let’s face it, there are probably as many picky eaters among teens as there are toddlers!  Also, you may not realize this, but the teenage years are what cements eating habits.  Whether teenagers go away to college or venture out on careers, they must learn how to feed themselves, and if they don’t learn now, it will be a more painful process later.  For more information on this topic, go to our article, Teenage Nutrition Guide.
