Introducing these elements to your pantry will pave the way for happy guts, healthy energy levels and overall wellbeing. The class will include learning how to make wholefood chicken stock, beef bone broth, ghee, salad dressing and various condiments such as dukkah and gomasio.

Nourishing and Healing Traditional Whole Foods for Toddlers WORKSHOP

13th of July 2015

“I really enjoyed increasing my knowledge about the best, nutritional foods to offer my toddler, in a relaxed informal style. Dr. Verena presented us with a comprehensive and creative list of meal and snack ideas, which is a fantastic go-to list, as well as some easy, tasty recipes. Plus useful information about which foods are best avoided or minimalised, and why. I found it inspiring to learn some new food combinations and key foods for enriching meals. Dr. Verena’s expert understanding of nutrition and experience as a mother is very supportive in helping to integrate these good foods into children’s diet.” Prue Keenan
