Naturopathy offers a holistic approach to wellness. Its foundation is built upon the importance of healthy food, clean fresh water, sunlight, exercise, nature and mindfulness as medicine. Naturopathy uses evidence based nutritional and herbal supplementation to help support the body to heal itself and optimise wellness and vitality.
A naturopath will work with you and your child to investigate and understand the cause of an imbalance or illness as well as working with the symptoms that are experienced. The goal is to help to empower you with dietary and lifestyle advice that can be incorporated into daily life and have a positive impact on the health and vitality of your family. An understanding of what can fuel our bodies in a way that is fundamental to good health and can set us up for life.
In today’s fast-paced world, where convenience is often essential, thoughtful choices are so important when it comes to our families nutrition. By embracing the principles of naturopathy, we follow a holistic approach that values the innate wisdom of the body and the power of natural ingredients – food as medicine! We’ll work with you to start improving the balance, colour and nutrition in lunchboxes in a way that works for your family.
The key to a healthy lunchbox lies in striking the right balance between taste and nutrition. It is not about restricting your families preferences or depriving them of treats, but rather about making informed decisions that optimise their wellbeing, whilst being true to your own families values (your culture, family traditions, food origins, availability and access, and what brings you joy!). By incorporating fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, quality proteins, and healthy fats, we can create meals that provide sustained energy, support brain function, and boost the immune system. We put the FUN in FUNCTIONAL *eye roll*.
The Simple Lunchbox is a growing resource of recipes and information to help you navigate the role of food in supporting your families health. Here, you’ll find something for eveyone – family-friendly recipes; simple 5-minute hacks, easy food combinations, allergy friendly options and nutrient dense meals. We also delve a bit deeper to explain some areas that are often met with confusion or overwhelm, or simply some thoughts that might help to save you time, energy or even some cash along the way in our blog section.
We are working on seasonal 3-day meal plans for you to download for some inspiration to add to your lunchboxes and family meal rotations (click here to read about why we LOVE eating with the seasons). Soon, you’ll also be able to purchase PERSONALISED meal plans online (read more here).
