Join us on Saturday, May 30, from 1:00-3:00PM, as Banyan Montessori Academy will present Dr. Sean Gregory from Canton Center Chiropractic Clinic to talk with parents about helping their children grow into their full potential.
If nutrition provides the building blocks of the body genes, then exercise provides the blue prints. The consumption of optimal levels of micro-nutrients (minerals, vitamins and plant chemicals) is necessary for both children and adults who desire to operate at their full capacity. This coupled with a proper macro-nutrient (carbs, protein, and fats) is what paves the way to individual optimization. In addition to proper nutrition, exercise grows and reinforces the brain at the same time as it grows and reinforces the body. Movement tells our bodies how to lay down new bone when we grow, helps aid our digestion through core activity and breathing, and activates and balances our hormones.
Dr. Gregory will be discussing the building blocks of nutrition to grow a healthy, active brain as well as how exercise is integral to fully realizing our potentials.
Materials will be provided detailing high nutrient foods, strategies to get kids to eat healthy, and age specific recommendations for physical activity.
