One of my favorite groups of people to work with in regards to nutrition is Spinal Cord Injuries. They taught me to believe in limitless possibilities in the human body and psyche. Helping their bodies be supported so they can heal, rejuvenate, and create a nourished life after their experience. Thanks to them, I became more emotionally alive and not to sweat the small stuff.
Now, I am being called to support children. I use to resist working with kids because adults were the ones purchasing the food, so I believed that is where change was going to happen. Teaching children to respect food and their bodies is the key to support the planet and the health of our tribe.
Where to begin? I don’t know yet. Local farms, farmers markets, schools. I am in. If you all have any ideas, send them over my way. If you want to support Conscious Nutrition for Kids, let us know. This is a great way to help heal your own personal resistance to making change with yourself and your family. Remember, gentle changes vs. all or none is best for everyone.

“My wish is to create a strong sustainable movement to educate every child about food, inspire families to cook again and empower people everywhere to fight obesity.”–Jamie Oliver
Food Revolution Day is a global campaign to put compulsory practical food education on the school curriculum. Jamie passionately believes that by educating children about food in a fun and engaging way, we can equip them with the basic skills they need to lead healthier, happier lives, for themselves and their future families.
Respect your body & food you put in it,
Heather Fleming, C.C.N
P.S. I am of course still helping adults! Please sign up here for a Conscious Consult. I have been practicing new ways to help you release your resistance with making changes and how to make new choices.
