Walnuts are the second highest food source of Omega 3 fatty acids – and Omega 3 deficiency is directly linked to the incidence of ADHD. So I’m always trying to make up recipes with more walnuts…

This one was a winner. I managed to sneak in 1 and 1/12 cups of walnuts (massive dose of Omega 3!), plus lots of protein and low in sugar. Perfectly good for the kids breakfast (or for me with a cuppa).

Did you know that Omega 3 is the body’s secret weapon against inflammation? It’s the nutrient that helps control asthma, IBS, eczema, fibromyalgia, allergies and all the “itis” diseases like arthritis, sinusitis, colitis etc.

And because 65% of the brain is made of Omega 3s – it is also the number one nutrient involved in treating brain disorders like ADHD, autism, dyslexia, depression and even anxiety.

Yes I’m a bit in love with Omega 3. And because 90% of us are deficient in this nutrient – it makes me wonder if this might be part of what’s wrong with our kids’ health?
