One thing that really annoys me is ‘toddler formula’ !!
Even way back when my kids were little (15 years ago now) and I wasn’t as nutritionally savvy as I am now, I still thought, that is crazy! Why not just feed kids food?
Let’s face it though – nutrition can be confusing! Toddlers are notoriously fussy eaters and it can be hard to know if they are getting the right amount and type of nutrients.
Leading Aussie naturopath and nutritionist, Emma Sutherland, has the solution.
After becoming a new mum a few years ago, Emma saw a need for a one stop guide for overall toddler health and vitality….. so she created it herself! Sophia Eats – A Parents Guide to Toddler Health & Vitality is now available directly from Emma on her website.
“When I was pregnant I began thinking about how I could ensure my child also shared my passion for food. I simply couldn’t imagine raising a child who wouldn’t enjoy hours of cooking and meal times with me! ” Emma Sutherland.
This is not just another recipe book, Emma has also shared a lot of amazing information about nutrition as well as practical advice and tips on toddler health in general. This lady knows her stuff – it’s not outdated nutrition advice!
Gut health is a feature and Emma has a fabulous recipe for bone broth and advice about probiotics. Emma even talks about removing toxins from your child’s diet and relaxation techniques. You will find food tips for better behaved kids, getting kids to sleep and calming hyperactivity as well as strategies for fussy eaters. It’s very much an holistic approach.
The photography is stunning and Sophia is such a cutie and makes a great model!
The book is full of little gems of parenting wisdom like… “The table is a place of emotional warmth and connection”. It’s all about taking the stress out of meal times and instead making them a fun, pleasureable experience for everyone. I mean … who doesn’t want that?
The recipes are simple but all feature nourishing whole foods – things like apple and chia muffins, chocolate ‘ice cream, jelly vitamins and immune boosting milk. The recipes are suitable for all ages, really.
I love this book!
Emma writes in a friendly way that makes you feel supported. No holier than thou parenting advice here! Just helpful, useful information and tips that are achievable and easy to put into practice. I am thrilled that this information is available to parents to help them negotiate the tricky world of toddler feeding (without going insane).
And … no toddler formula in sight!
