Parental Control, Ep 74: What To Feed Your Tweens And Teens With Gabriela Peacock

Leonora Bamford welcomes nutritionist Gabriela Peacock to the show to discuss tween and teen nutrition. Leonora quizzes Gabriela about body image and how to handle those difficult conversations, the impact of hormones and diet on skin and useful supplements to boost nutrition and support hormonal changes.

Tween and teen nutrition

“I so enjoyed catching up with Gabriela Peacock of GP Nutrition today. She is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to health and wellbeing and she is all about balance which is definitely my mantra. I swear by her vitamins and it was so interesting to hear her views on teens and tweens health, diet, skin and lifestyle with a lot of talk about balance and hormones.” Leonora Bamford.

Show notes

It’s good for Teens to have protein before bed. Easy forms are:

  • Cheese
  • Turkey
  • Low sugar yoghurt
  • Nuts

Good things to look out for teens:

  • A good multi-vitamin
  • Probiotics
  • Fish oils (great for hormone balance)
  • And think about zinc for boys

Kombucha can be a good alternative to lemonade and great for their gut health

Breakfast – eggs and yoghurt are a good option, or a nice nut milk with porridge. A protein shake is better than nothing

Mid afternoon snacks are important – remember the importance of protein again as this helps with mood swings and keeping blood sugar levels constant
