Nutrition for Mental Health and Prevention of Eating Disorders in Youth [PODCAST]
Important Message for Students, Schools, Teachers, Coaches and Parents
Our practice and team of Dietitians see firsthand the impact of mental health and eating disorders on kids, adolescents and their families. Since the pandemic eating disorders have drastically risen and we’ve seen greater challenges with anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns with so many of our clients.
It was a huge honour to be interviewed for the High Performing Educator Podcast with Sam Demma to talk about:
- the connection of nutrition for mental health in kids and youth
- explore food for your brain, learning, health and mental health
- what to do if you know someone may be struggling with an eating disorder
- share resources on nutrition for mental health and eating disorders
