Naturopath Approved Party Foods For Kids (+ Adults)

Naturopath Approved Party Foods For Kids (+ Adults)

 

Wheat, gluten, sugar and then dreaded additives (colours and preservatives) are frequent occurrences at most kids parties. In clinic, I hear time and time again from upset mothers who take their children to child care, parties, visits to the grandparents (the list goes on)…and back they come with signs and symptoms of junk food overload. This can include behavioral issues, skin conditions (such as eczema), digestive disturbances and a struggling immune system for days following.

We all love to be able to spoil our little ones, with loads of hugs and kisses, presents and yes, the sweet treats. Its ok for kids to have some sweet surprises, but you can do this without exposing them to unnecessary nasties. I challenge you to try whipping up my Naturopath approved kids treats instead!

Creamy Hot Chocolate

Creamy Hot Chocolate

Creamy Hot Chocolate… sounds naughty right? Not this recipe!

Firstly, this one is made using quality raw cacao powder (as oppose to refined and sugar filled chocolate powder) and it passes on the usual additions of pasteurised milk and sugar.

What you will find is gut healing gelatine as the ‘creaming agent’, blood sugar stabalising ghee (or butter) and energy enhancing Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) oil. When you add MCT oil (along with other good fats) into your diet, your body uses them (ketones) as a source of energy for the brain, which can be easily drawn upon and lasts for much longer than fast burning glucose energy sources.

If you have a sweet tooth, you have the option of adding raw honey or fructose free stevia liquid and enhancing the flavour sensation with a drop of high quality essential oils.

Get all of this in my Creamy Hot Chocolate recipe & enjoy the increased energy and brain power, stronger immune and...
