About the Event
THE FIRST 1000 days of your baby’s life are hugely important.
From conception to 2 years is a crucial time, with tremendous potential and enormous vulnerability.
Nourishment and lifestyle of both PARENT & BABY has a profound impact on a child’s ability to grow, learn and thrive.
Throughout the third trimester of pregnancy and the first two years of life, a child’s brain is developing rapidly and its ability to modify and rewire itself is incredible!
There are a variety of nutrients that contribute to the proper development of the brain. Iron in particular plays a significant role throughout the first 1,000 days, as deficiency can impact learning, social and emotional behaviour. Other nutrients of particular importance are protein, zinc, iodine and folate.
In pregnancy, the pregnant parent is the sole source of nutrition for a growing foetus, highlighting the importance of eating well during this stage. In infancy breastmilk provides a unique variety of nutrients, growth factors and hormones that adapt to a baby’s needs and are crucial for early brain development and learning functions including balance, coordination and posture.
There is an increasing focus on what YOU eat and HOW you eat it.

She has a degree in nutrition and is also a culinary expert which comes in helpful when preparing individualised meal plans.
She actually started her nutrition studies due to her own health issues. Her health team couldn't get the root problem of the chronic hives she had developed. Doctors would just prescribe antibiotics, creams and other medication, however, nothing got to the root of her problem. She understood that the only way was to start with improving my gut health. Within a few months, her hives disappeared.
She believes in food. Food is our medicine and we should EAT HAPPY.
