“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” is a phrase often attributed to Hippocrates. Historians argue over what he actually said, but you won’t find any argument with this axiom here. We know that less than 30% of medical doctors are required to take even one course in nutrition. This is a stunning omission since the majority of chronic diseases are caused by poor diet, or at the very least, exacerbated by it. This section of the RESILIENCE site focuses on food and provides recipes, resources, and tips that can help your family improve your health and well-being.

Ok, here is the good news and the bad news all at once! In order for our children and families to be healthy, we are all going to have to learn some science as well as to learn how to cook! Fast food and processed foods may be quick, and maybe cheap, but we can’t rely on others to make healthy foods for our family. We know, because some of us are single parents, or have families where both parents are working, that many of you struggle with making healthy, home-cooked meals every day.

Let’s explore the many facets of healthy eating as a family. Together we will learn about the nutrients and nutrition science needed to support healthy children and how to prepare simple, healthy foods that are appealing to the whole family. We will cover the whole spectrum of nutrition – from prenatal nutrition to feeding infants, the transition to solid foods, and how we can teach children to love foods that are both healthy and delicious. We will look at school food, and snacks after school. We will shed light on the impact of food marketing on children, how to handle food allergies, and how to prevent metabolic conditions related to diet. Food is the vital link between nutrition and your children’s health. Our approach will always be to provide practical information, skills, and recipes that can be made by beginner or advanced cooks. We will do our best to share recipes that are relatively quick and easy to make, and demonstrate how you can involve the kids in making meals because we know how vital it is to teach our children to prepare and cook real food at home.
