Nutrition begins from the ground up with Nicole Akers
I had the pleasure of meeting Nicole Akers at a writer’s conference last fall. She shared an emotional story of how her daughter’s behaviour was radically changed by what she ate. I was so moved by the story that I searched for her at every break – I remember she wore a distinctive scarf, which made it a little easier for me. When we finally did connect, it started a conversation that is still going to this day.
In episode 10 of More Than Good Food, Nicole talks about the impact of having a daughter with extreme food allergies, and the effect it had on her and her family. She shares how difficult it was to be judged as a bad parent, and the lengths she went to to help heal her child. It’s a story you won’t want to miss hearing.
“Some people think kids can eat whatever they want… but food matters in such a way that changes their behaviour.”
Nicole’s daughter was deeply affected by gluten, dyes and sugar. Their go-to breakfast cereal is Muesli and she has shared a copy of her favourite version, which she can make in under five minutes with her 5-year old assistant.
