9MSN

I was interviewed by 9MSN recently to comment on new research that found the more time parents spend with their children, the better their diet. It's a pretty tricky issue as there are many parents that just don't have the choice - their work demands long hours. There is plenty you can do to do if you are time poor to help ensure your children eat well. Cook up large batches of good food like minestrone and stews so you can freeze extra portions. That way you can quickly warm some up on those busy nights. Have a few good, quick recipes you can whip up and make sure you have the ingredients on hand. The key is planning ahead and having plenty of good fresh foods available.

I was interviewed by ninemsn  to discuss how getting children to serve their own meals can prevent obesity. The notion of forcing children to finish everything on their plate is really obsolete. By serving themselves they gain a sense of control over the food they eat and meal time is no longer a battle ground. The study found children are more likely to recognise the sensation of feeling full and stop eating, setting up life long healthy eating patterns. Offering a wide variety of foods (including different vegetables) also allows for better nutrition generally. What better way is there to finish the day than sharing a range of delicious, nutritious foods with your loved ones!

I shared my 'Food As Medicine Tips - How to Stay Well Over Winter' with the Marie Claire readers. I certainly find a good dose of Vitamin D in oily fish, shitake mushrooms (in soups and stir-fry) along with liberal amounts of chia seeds, goji berries and plenty of vegetables (especially the orange and yellow kind) helps keep away those dreaded bugs for my family.

this whole family blog

The lovely Meagan interviewed me for her very popular blog 'This Whole Family' on March 1st 2013. She chronicles her family's everyday wonder and strives to live more simply, to eat (and even grow) whole foods, to slow down, to give more, to spend less time in front of screens and more time with Mother Nature, to create, to imagine, to grow, to learn and above all else to be the change we wish to see. Her blogs are always inspiring and a greater reminder of how the simple things in life can have the most meaning. Thanks for the write up Meagan.

My daughter was VERY excited to have her photo taken for the local paper

ELWOOD nutritionist Lindy Cook knows getting children to eat healthy food can be a daily battle.

Picture: RICHARD SERONG N30CK534 Lindy Cook with daughter Imogen, 8, has tips for healthy school lunches.

The mother-of-two has an arsenal of secret weapons to ensure her kids’ lunches are packed with nutrition.

‘‘ Sneaking superfoods into cookies and muffins is a really good strategy,’’ Mrs Cook said. ‘‘Chia seeds are packed with iron, calcium and magnesium, and ... tend to absorb the taste of the food they’re in.’’

While most schools ban nuts, alternative healthy snacks include sunflower seeds, goji berries and sulphur-free dried apricots.

Protein was essential for improving concentration, Mrs Cook said.
