Food is our source of vitamins and minerals, as well as the only fuel for the body making it very important for growing bodies and minds. Even if your child doesn’t have a specific issue, feeding them real food is important to their future health and helping them reach their full potential. In this busy world, making feeding your family a priority is one of the greatest gifts you can give them.

Make the best food choices for your baby and get their health off to the best start.

The Gut and Psychology Syndrome diet refers to connection between gut bacteria and brain function. The bacteria naturally living in the gut effects much more than just our digestive system.

This can cause all kinds of problems, from digestive complains, to skin rashes, headaches, brain fog, learning disabilities, behavior and mood issues. Autism, auto immune disease, weight regulation and even mental illness are connected to the type of bacteria living in our gut! Learn how to heal these issues using the GAPS diet.
