THIS FOOD-FOCUSED SYSTEM CAN REDUCE OUTBURSTS, IMPULSIVITY & ANXIETY WHILE IMPROVING SLEEP, FOCUS, LEARNING AND COMMUNICATION WITHOUT YOU LOSING YOUR MIND.

…even if you’re child is a picky eater.

The Raising Resilience Jumpstart Program Is For You If...

  • You want to or have been told to make changes to your child's diet but you don't know how to do that without risking nutritional deficiency, or even if it’s worth the hassle 

  • You have a child who struggles with digestive problems, food sensitivities or allergies, and you want a clear path forward
  • You have a child with diagnosed or suspected autism, AD(H)D, anxiety, emotional outbursts, depression or growth difficulties and you want to help them without meds and without feeling overwhelmed

Sound like you? You're in the right place

I'm Jess, And I'll Be Your Guide

 

I'm a mom of three, a nutritionist, author, speaker and health coach specializing in children's nutrition. I'm also a former high school teacher.

I've been working with families for 20 years.

At our integrative healthcare clinic I spend my days coaching parents, helping them find a nutrition strategy so their kids calm down, learn better, have better sleep, have more stable moods.

We go beyond diagnosis. We use food to support the overall health of the body so that it works better.

When we do that, troubling symptoms - from skin rashes to tantrums to anxiety and focus - start to dissolve.

At home I’m a parent, like you, just trying to keep all my balls in the air and raise a healthy family.

After working with hundreds of families, from classroom to clinic, I know that...

  • If your child is struggling they are not alone. Kids are struggling now more than ever. They’re having a hard time staying focused, they struggle with transitions, with sleep, with mood, with anger; many  have a hard time learning and communicating; allergies and asthma are on the rise and more kids are complaining of tummy trouble.
  • Food is likely playing a role in your child's behavoiur or pain. The impact of food on the body is the one piece of the puzzle that is being missed by most teachers, therapists, doctors and counsellors. Since food impacts every tissue of the body, exploring food remains a powerful, yet sorely underutilized tool for helping your kids
  • If you've tried making diet changes and have seen no improvements it's probably because you didn't have a roadmap of the most powerful strategies or a way to systematically track changes.
  • If you've been told diet changes won't make a difference, whomever told you that was not able to give you a safe and effective plan that takes into account the most recent research about how food influences biochemistry. 

Though You Might Have Heard Otherwise, Food Is Your #1 Tool To Help Your Child Calm Down, Focus, Sleep, Be Happy And Self Regulate…

Here's Why...

Nutrients regulate inflammation.

Food effects blood sugar.

Food shifts the body's bacteria.

Food provides building blocks for growth & development.

Food creates and activates our body’s chemical messengers.

What (And How) Your Child Eats Influences How They Think, Feel, Act And Function Because Food Activates Processes Deep Within Their Body

But Feeding A Family Is Tough!

Does your life look like this?

You spend your nights sifting through all the blogs, facebook posts, books, articles and opinions to try to figure out what you should be feeing your child.

You finally free up time, energy and money to get this healthy food on the table...

...only to have your kids reject it because it’s the wrong color or they don’t like how it smells!

Back to square one.

I get it.

IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY:  To use food to help your child while keeping your sanity intact you need to surround yourself with the right support, stick to a system and know what you're looking for.

If you don't do that, I guarantee you'll continue to feel overwhelmed.

You need to become spectacularly efficient.

Improving Resilience... A Two-Pronged Approach

No matter what symptoms or diagnosis you're dealing with, improving physical resilience will help resolve it. Physical resilience is the body's ability to adapt, grow and self regulate.  When we have resilience we function our best.

I take parents through a two-pronged approach for how to use food to improve resilience.

Prong one is to reduce irritation.

Prong two is to eat in a way that helps the body self regulate

Jumpstart Is Designed To Help You Understand And Manage Prong One - Diet Related Irritation So Your Child Can Feel Better

When We Raise Resilience, Here’s What We End Up With…

  • Kids who sleep better, focus better, communicate better, learn better and have more stable moods and behaviours

  • Parents who can relax, knowing exactly what drives their kids’ symptoms and behaviours and who have a toolbox of strategies to help

  • A sigh of relief for everyone… so you and your kids can relax and enjoy life more

All of us parents just want to see our kids grow healthy and happy. We want them to function their best, live their lives with confidence and experience success.
