Is this course for me?

It’s easy for us adults to forget how much of a sensory overload the world can be for our children — there is always something new to discover, understand, and learn. But without the right nutrients to actively support their brain development, kids can find it much harder to process these experiences. Poor nutrition can also exacerbate behavioral problems such as moodiness, hyperactivity, and inattentiveness, even leading to low quality well-being and learning difficulties. 



We know that food doesn’t just feed the body; it also feeds the brain. But did you know there are foods that can aid vital brain growth by supporting brain function and foods that can cause brain inflammation? By learning how to identify and understand the link between nutrition and cognitive health, you can improve your child’s ability to pay attention, control impulsive behaviour, and even curb hyperactivity. 


This course will not only help you unpack possible root causes of your child’s learning difficulties and behavioral problems, but also equip you with knowledge of how to shop for the right foods and give you easy, practical ideas to create brain-boosting snacks and meals for home and school. You will additionally learn how to identify and address any gaps in your child’s diet with supplements.



  • Parents, teachers, and caregivers looking to improve their child’s cognitive capacity and well-being.
  • Anyone with children displaying symptoms of hyperactivity, inattentiveness, learning difficulties, or mood and behavioral problems.
  • Anyone looking to understand how to maximize their children’s potential through nutrition.

“I was looking for sound advice that was ethical but not alarmist on what my kids should be eating. I’m pleased to have received them from Karin. She gave me a huge reminder that I am 100% accountable and responsible for my children’s diet. She also changed my mindset on dealing with food refusal, which was a big aha moment! My three-year-old is starting to become quite argumentative, and I’ve started to say to him, ‘I’m sorry but I’m not arguing with you’ about his behavior. I will now be doing this with food too.”


“A must for every parent and caretaker! Our children’s health is so important to us and it is fuelled by the food we give. I definitely learned what not to give my kids, and also some really exciting and inspiring ideas on what to feed them and how to get them involved. I also love the strategies that Karin shared on handling picky eaters — they are not extreme and can be done step-by-step.”
