As a mom and Certified Nutritionist for over 13 years, I am passionate about educating parents on how to heal their child’s health concerns by changing the foods they eat and how they are prepared.
Common issues like “Picky Eaters”, delayed growth, eczema, constipation, gastrointestinal issues, allergies, ear infections, bronchial infections, and ADHD, are rarely ever fixed with medical intervention.
Instead, the underlying issues that caused the symptoms to appear need to be addressed and this often stems to nutritional imbalances, the mom’s pregnancy and birth, gastrointestinal damage, and the events which occurred in the first year of the child’s life (i.e. antibiotics, vaccines, breastmilk issues). In addition, a child’s body needs nutrients from specific foods while careful avoidance of others to heal that underlying problem.
My passion and interest in children’s nutrition stems back to my own health struggles during the first 25 years of my life. STORY OF ANNIKA’S HEALTH CRISIS AND MISSION.
Quality of food is EVERYTHING to me. I am a raw milk advocate and I support small farms who raise happy healthy humanely treated pastured animals. I buy my produce from local farms when possible, and I support farmers who use sustainable agriculture to grow organic food.
I am an advocate of natural childbirth, midwifes & doulas, a fanatic about breastfeeding and good nutrition pre-conception, not just during pregnancy and lactation.
I warn about dangers of infant vaccinations (after 8 years of working with vaccine injured children, I have seen the hidden information the media does not want us to know).
I encourage everyone to go Green – even small changes around your home have a big impact on the world.
My mission is to help support and educate moms so they can raise healthy happy children who will then become an amazing next generation of people!
