Quotes

“Love is the ultimate language for kids, its the language for attachment, it’s the language where they feel comfortable and not stressed. And anything that interferes with that will cause more stress which is then going to start this spiral into effect where you get the nutrient deficiencies and then you get lower stress tolerance so you feel the stress more deeply and then they are caught in this vicious cycle.” (15:29)

“I realized that nobody was talking about the health of the body as being connected to the function of the brain and the mind. So if we were going to help kids develop into their best self, which is really what we wanted to do as teachers, we were missing this whole part of helping them understand their body and feed their body.” (18:18)

“Sometimes food isn’t the place to start, sometimes connection is the place to start.” (19:14)

“One of the best ways to take care of our own emotional needs is to nourish our own bodies, and it is the last thing we think about as a parent.” (31:17)

“We have got to just hold onto the vision that we have for our kids and for their health and the knowledge that we know more about nutrition than they do.” (35:18)
