“You have the potential to dramatically influence your child’s growth, immunity, intellectual performance, coordination, behaviour and mood, as well as her short-term and long-term health, simply with the food you put on her plate. Study after study has shown this to be true … Really, this shouldn’t come as any surprise. As living creatures, we are a product of the food we eat. From the time your baby is conceived, every cell that makes up her growing body is derived from food.
The relationship between food and health gives you enormous influence over the adult that your baby will become. By filling her early years with nutritious food, you give her an extraordinary head start in terms of realising her full mental and physical potential and her best health.
Every meal you have with your children is an opportunity to enhance their life, both through the pleasure of sharing home-cooked food and through all the goodness that meal will give their rapidly developing mind and body.”
