Nutrition and Your Children: Creating a Balance of Optimal Health and an Empowered Eater

There is so much information about healthy eating out there and so many ‘experts’ contradict each other. As parents, how can we navigate the maze of information to raise informed and empowered eaters? Dr. Colleen Ryan, a family practice physician with Foundation Health, will discuss the importance of empowering your child to make healthy eating choices, how to avoid power struggles regarding food, and some tips for how to make eating healthy fun. She’ll review the basics of how to encourage your children to “eat the rainbow” (and we don’t mean m&m’s, Skittles, or Lucky Charms) and will delve deep into a discussion about the right choices for your children’s nutrition. Some topics will include glucose and fructose; healthy fats; healthy meat and fish choices; pasture-raised foods; mercury; and dairy. She will also talk about sugar’s effect on attention, behavior, and emotions.
