Publisher's Summary

If you want your child to have a healthy mental state, improve their gut health! Here’s why and how....

Harvard Medical School reports that the brain and the gut are intimately connected. When your intestine is in trouble, it can send signals to the brain, and vice versa.

Therefore, distress in your digestive system can be the cause or the product of anxiety, stress, depression, and other mental issues.

The National Center for Biotechnology Information reveals that bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are all connected to the behavioral, cognitive, and emotional turmoils that are ultimately rooted in disordered brain function.

A disordered brain function can be the result of an unhealthy gut. The latter is caused by chemical imbalances triggered by an unhealthy diet. Chemical imbalances can disrupt how your digestive system works in absorbing the nutrients needed to boost your immunity and your brain.

When this continues, the brain-gut connection will become toxic, resulting in a weak immune system and poor mental health.

So, to help your kid overcome emotional and behavioral problems, you need to be mindful of their diet.

Once you’re aware of what foods cause the gut to malfunction, you’ll be able to start making changes in how you prepare meals for your household.

Let this manual help you become a proactive parent who gives only the best your child deserves. Inside, you will discover:

  • How the brain and the gut communicate with each other—this can either improve or disturb the brain’s normal function!
  • What causes the immune system to attack healthy tissue…and how to prevent it
  • The types of food that gut bacteria don’t recognize—they can make your digestive tract dysfunctional when consumed long-term
  • What triggers pleasure centers in the brain (caution: it’s just a short-term boost and will be detrimental in the long run)
  • The food additives associated with ADHD and violent outbursts
  • How to test your kid’s gut health without going to a doctor
  • The 5 types of diet that can help your kid improve their ADHD symptoms and overall health
  • 10 artificial ingredients to avoid (warning: manufacturers hide one of them by writing this alternative name on their packaging)
  • The worst kind of fat that can trigger ADHD and other neurological issues
  • What to include in your kid’s diet to help their gut absorb the essential nutrients their body needs on a regular basis
  • The imbalances in the stomach that affect how the brain works…and what to do to achieve balance
  • How to remedy the overgrowth of fungi in the digestive tract by avoiding certain foods

And much more.

You won’t just get information from this guide, you’ll find simple, delicious, and gut-healthy recipes, too!

Plus, you can even apply the advice in this book not just for your child, but also for yourself and your entire family.

Today is the right time to start taking action for your child’s health, starting with their gut.

If you want to improve your kid’s mental health for the long term through proper nutrition, then scroll up and buy now.

Helpful for Parents!

This audiobook is so helpful for parents who have children suffering from ADD and ADHD because it lists the foods or chemicals in foods that can help or hinder your child. I learned that it is so important to take care of the immune system. My favorite sections were getting off on the right foot and changes that might prove difficult. Keeping a record of what you eat and feed your children is so helpful in knowing how certain foods affect the Gut. It was so interesting to learn how sweeteners were created and what it does to the Gut. I recommend this book.

A revelation!

Nutrition has always seemed like some sort of witchcraft to me, especially for my kids. This was really interesting to hear about how different foods have different effects not only on your stomach but also mind and nervous system. Very informative and changed some of what I was doing not only with my childrens diet but also mine!

Great for kids and parents

I had a lot of questions going in when reading this book like 'how would gut health affect my sons ADHD' or 'what sources does it use as support'. I definitely got all my questions answered and more so I can give my son a better diet so that he can function better outside the house.

Keep your children healthy

All my life, I grew up on sugary foods, and when it comes to my children, I needed to change how I thought about food. I never realized how a diet could affect a child’s life. So, I got this book to educate myself on improving our diet. Shea Macrae offers great guidelines on what foods to eat that are best for your child’s so they can have a healthier microbiome to help with ADHD.

A Parents' Guide to Promoting Brain-Gut Health

A child's diet has a significant impact on their mental health. A healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can help improve focus and concentration, while a diet high in sugary, processed foods can lead to problems with ADD and ADHD. In addition to promoting a healthy diet, parents can also help their children by making sure they get enough sleep and exercise. Exercise has been shown to improve brain function, and adequate sleep is essential for developing brains. Finally, parents should make sure their children have opportunities to socialize and play. Social interaction and play help children to develop important skills such as self-regulation and empathy. By promoting a healthy diet, adequate sleep, exercise, and social interaction, parents can help their children develop into well-rounded adults.

Rich on self-awareness of parenting and caring!

This book is simply rich! Informational and instructive. How dysfunctional our body can become when we don't pay attention to our Mental Health, in our emotions. The value of this book should be highlighted with way more than 5 stars because here I found so much relevant information on dieting, behavior, and parenting to raise a child healthier. My big congratulations and thanks to the Author!

Essential for any child!

In the modern world, children's diets can be as healthy or as unhealthy as parents let them be. Children can be incredibly fussy and stubborn about what they will eat and it makes being a parent very challenging at times. Education is so vital in knowing what to feed them and a lot of parents simply don't know what foods will aide your brain and gut health.

This audiobook is full of life changing information that explains the connection between our brain and out gut, shows us which diets are best to initiate in order to kick start your child's brain health. There's also a really useful chapter on food supplementation. The author clearly has researched this subject well and the narrator is very engaging.

Whether your child suffers from a condition like ADHD or not, this will do nothing but help their mental health as they grow up into becoming young adults.

Gut health, for kids!

This book opened my eyes to the importance of diet. I never guessed how intricate the relationship between the brain and the gut was. Simply fascinating how much it has an effect on your physical and mental states/health.

This is the knowledge that should be taught more in schools!

I grew up on a poor diet as it was cheaper to eat that way. Now I know much better. We eat a lot healthier now and I will make sure my kids continue to do so!
