👋🏼 I quit! 👋🏼
Yesterday I worked my last day as a leader and science teacher at a high school to embark on a journey to follow my ❤️ and pursue a career in a field that I’m so passionate about - children’s nutrition.
There’s such a lack of research in this field, a lot of conflicting information, pseudo-science, misleading info, and untruths out there.
I’m so looking forward to taking you on a journey with me as I work out how to feed my 👶🏻 the best I can and you feed yours the best you can, whilst debunking all the myths along the way.
🛑I truly believe there is not enough publically accessible research out there or enough of a focus on robust, valid, reliable, evidence-based guidance for feeding our babies, toddlers and children.
❓What’s best to give when? How much do they need? How much of each thing do they need? How much should we focus on proteins, fats, carbohydrates etc.? Which are the best foods to feed them? Why? Does what we give them from day 1 have an impact on long-term eating patterns, relationships with and attitudes towards food? Does the way we feed them from 6(ish) months make a difference in the long term? Is 6(ish) months and when they’re showing the 3 signs of readiness the best time to start feeding them? Why? How can we reduce the likelihood of allergies developing?
👣These are just a few of the questions I have right now - I can’t wait to start my Masters in Human Nutrition in Sept and am really looking forward to sharing all the important things I learn with you all so that we can all make amazing, well informed decisions about the way we feed our children to help them to thrive both now and in the long term 👶🧒👧👦👩🧑👱♀️👵👴❤️
After a long 3 years, 7 placements, many tears and laughter and some amazing memories with some amazing people I have finally qualified as a paediatric nurse!!!! It all starts now 🍾💃🏼🎉🤕🧠💪🙌🏽 #wedidit#postgrad#proud#lookoutworld
