Food and Mood

Does Food affect our Mood? You better believe it!

Check out our video on this HERE

What we eat directly affects the structure and function of our brain and, ultimately, our moods. How often do we see this in our kids after a birthday party? Our kids behaviour is often linked to the health of their gut. Check out our healthy party ideas HERE

What we eat, especially foods that contain additives and ultra-processed foods, affects our gut environment. Our gut microbiome is literally it’s own universe and it’s in our gut that we make our feel good hormones like serotonin and dopamine and GABA which all play a HUGE part in how we feel.

Foods that Can Make us Feel Flat

Apartame

Used in soft drinks as an artificial sweetener, has been linked to behavioural and cognitive problems. Possible neurophysiological symptoms include learning problems, headache, seizure, migraines, irritable moods, anxiety, depression, and insomnia.

inflammatory Oils

Found in most processed foods and margarines – watch our video on this HERE

Additives

The big one for impacting our kids moods. Additives linked to many behaviour issued for our kids and can cause a huge issue in them regulating their nervous system.

Refined Sugar

Has a huge impact on our nervous system and blood sugar regulation. The sugar crash always follows the high and this can leave us feeling flat and without energy.

Processed Foods

These foods have low vital force – if we want to be feeling good – we need to be eating living foods – not food that has been sitting in a box for 3 years.

Foods that can help us feel GOOD!

These nutrients contain vital compounds that help feed our happy hormones.

A great reminder to be getting more of these into our kids each week.
