The main protein element comes from grass fed bovine bone broth, which provides a host of benefits, particularly for gut health. Now, in our house, we don’t just celebrate trying new food… no, no, no! We also celebrate poo! That’s right…poo! Why? Because like many kids, our kid has spent the last 8 years withholding it, terrified to poop because of that one time when it hurt. He could go days, sometimes sitting on the pot under duress, listening to those God awful poo songs on Youtube in an attempt to encourage him to relax whilst chugging back Movicol like it was going out of fashion. It may seem utterly shameful, but I simply did not connect the dots, not realising that his gut health needed attention, instead believing that he was just one of those kids that wasn’t in tune with his poo clock. Since scrapping the morning smoothie carton, which I naively believed was a great way to start his day, and introducing his morning protein shake, the boy has joined the ‘poo at least once a day’ club! Hoorah! Not only has the protein powder helped to repair his gut, it’s given him a much needed sense of relief. His mood is up, he’s more active and he is happier, which is all we really want for our kids, isn’t it. Knowing that I am giving him a dose of goodness rich in collagen and amino acids, which, in turn, allow him to absorb essential nutrients from those homemade chicken nuggets (wink), supporting his immune system and providing him with a strong foundation for his development honestly makes me feel like I’ve won the parent lottery.
