Nourishing Your Family - with Jo Whitton & Elyse Comerford (Townsville)
QCWA Denham Street, Townsville
134 Denham St, Townsville QLD 4810, Australia
Shiny happy faces, plenty of energy and laughter, the time and space to enjoy life with the abundant health that makes it possible... Isn’t this what we would all love for our families? In an ideal world this would be easy to achieve for every family, yet in our modern world it seems further and further from reach.
There is so much pressure on parents these days. Parenting in the digital age is tricky, plus there’s all the confusion and conflicting nutrition information we are bombarded with, and the stress of chronic illnesses and developmental disorders that are a part of life for many… it’s a minefield!
Join Jo Whitton (Quirky Cooking) and Elyse Comerford (Nutritionist) as they present ‘Nourishing Your Family’ - a simple, wholesome blueprint created from their real-life experiences with their own families. They will take you through every step from building the foundations of good health and happiness, to then delving further into gut health and how it relates to the health of our whole system, and what you can do if you are suffering with acute and/or chronic health issues. Combine this with practical nutrition guidelines, food preparation tips and cooking demonstrations to help you reduce the food stress, and you have an evening jam-packed with inspiration (and the perfect amount of information!).
If you are feeling stuck (and petrified!) with no idea where to start, or you are on your health journey already but would love some encouragement from two mums who have battled through many obstacles to nourish and heal their families, then this event is not to be missed!
