Welcome to The Nourished Child podcast, a show about childhood nutrition, feeding kids, and dealing with the ups and downs of raising healthy ones, inside and out.

Jul 30, 2020

I nerd out on brain development. All the changes that happen in the brain throughout childhood are simply amazing. Brain development has been a fascination of mine for quite some time. And not just what goes on in the infancy years. Quite a bit goes on throughout childhood and the teen years too. And, as a 50-something year old, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t just slightly interested in what happens to the brain as we age.

I’ve had two guest experts come on the podcast to talk about infancy and toddlerhood, and today, I’m recapping my interview with Dr. Bob Murray, a pediatrician who is equally fascinated with brain development in the early years.

Much of our success in life is due to a healthy, functioning, well-developed brain. And nutrition is a big piece of the healthy brain puzzle. It all begins in pregnancy, and after birth, what babies eat, how they are cared for and interacted with, all help to nurture a healthy brain.

I’ll let Dr. Murray fill you in on the rest. In the meantime, if you have a baby and it’s getting close to starting solids, I invite you to check out my book The Smart Mom’s Guide to Starting Solids, available in print or ebook on Amazon. 

Enjoy the show!
