Mum to Amelie, 8, and Tom, 6, Rachel has a special interest in children’s nutrition. She believes sowing the seeds for a lifetime of good health starts long before even the first thought of bringing a baby into the world.
“It’s bizarre that the produce manager is more important
to my children’s health than the pediatrician.”
Sowing the Seeds of Good Health
A Healthy Balance
At children’s parties, she’s often asked if her children are allowed to eat cakes and sweets. Rachel’s answer is most definitely, yes! Good health and nutrition are all about balance. The moment certain foods or drinks are banned, children ask for them all the more.
“There’s a need for accepting responsibility – for a person’s life and making choices that are not just ones for immediate short-term comfort. You need to make an investment, and the investment is in health and education.” Buzz Aldrin
A Creative Approach to Children’s Nutrition
Rachel encourages healthy eating habits by educating children about the benefits in a really fun and creative way.
“Children are so receptive to the benefits of eating healthily from a very young age, they really are like sponges, soaking up the messages they see and hear about food, so it’s absolutely vital that they are getting the right messages.”
“A little bit of information presented in a way that taps into the amazing world of a child’s imagination; that they can understand and enjoy can really go a long way towards children starting to make healthy choices for themselves.”
“For many children, ‘healthy’ food is boring, whereas sweets, chocolate and crisps are exciting treats. It’s my mission to completely turn this around!”
