Children and Food
Nutritional deficiencies can express themselves in many different forms.
Some signs and symptoms can include but aren't limited to:
anxiety, feeling overwhelmed, behavioural outbursts, skin conditions eg eczema, hives, itchy eyes and ears, unexplained fatigue, mouth problems eg cracking around edges, ulcers, rashes, diarrhoea or constipation, bloating, lack of appetite even overeating and cravings, excess sweating, frequent infections, restless, fidgety, pain in legs, obesity.
The most common signs of nutrient deficiencies that I see in my clinic are temper and fussy eating.
The major reason for nutritional deficiencies is poor diet. However, there are other reasons. It is possible that the digestive system is not operating effectively, preventing food from being broken down and absorbed. Contributing factors to this may be a past history of infant reflux and other gastrointestinal disturbances from birth.
I often notice when children are having difficulty breaking food down they eat a 'beige' diet, bread, pasta, chicken nuggets, chips etc. It may not be just your child being fussy they may need some gut repair work.
Seek professional help sooner rather than later as it is easier for children to make and accept changes at a younger age.
The first 8 years of a child's life lays down the blueprint for the rest of their life.
