As our kids grow, so does their brains. It is also important to make sure that we nourish their brains with all the right nutrients.
I believe in healthy eating not only for myself but for my little one as well.
We try to steer away from gluten, dairy and refined sugars as much as possible. The reason for this is because his brain is going through its biggest development stage (first 1000 days) and needs the best nutrients. I still give him these occasionally as he still has a lifetime of parties ahead and I don’t want to make him immune to the above.
Benjamin turns 2 in October and his appetite is really big. He has consistent eating times and thrives on it. I however don’t give him any fruit after 16h00 to prevent the “sugar” high and restlessness.

Our kids love a sweet snack but we need to take care of that afternoon savoury snack. My friend Shayleigh took care of the yummy savoury snacks for us and you can find it here. We both love healthy eating and understand the importance of brain development.
