Hi, I’m Shawna Hughes, a Registered Holistic Nutritionist with a Bachelor’s degree of Science in Psychology. Having a daughter with ADD (Inattentive type) has led me here. My passion is helping parents understand the connection between food and behavior in ADHD/ADD.
I have spent years studying both Nutrition and Psychology and I understand the that two are intimately linked. I don’t believe that the “perfect diet” exists, but it is possible to pinpoint foods that are contributing to your child’s behavioral challenges. Using this knowledge, you can change food habits, slowly and consistently, to bring about amazing changes in their mental health.
As a mother of two, I understand that you don’t have the time or the energy to completely overhaul your family’s diet and lifestyle overnight. As a nutritionist, I understand that sudden, extreme changes to your diet are not sustainable. Let’s work together to develop a real plan that caters to your unique family. Let’s work toward progress, not perfection. You Can Do This.
Children are so resilient. With some guidance and support, your child can thrive! Let’s start working on individual solutions that pinpoint your child’s triggers and take your lifestyle into account.
Having a food intolerance (or a few) shouldn’t control your child’s life! Let’s figure out how we can easily introduce new foods into their diet to nourish their body and mind.
Let’s be honest. We all know that poor digestion is not good for our health. I will help you to understand exactly why optimal digestion is an essential component of mental health & how simply improving digestion by itself can bring about noticeable changes in your child’s ADHD symptoms.
Let's do this.
