Children and teens today face enormous struggles just to learn, play, socialize, or comply with simple requests.

Estimates range from six to forty percent of our kids using stimulant or other psychotropic medications in America today, depending on age and whether they are in foster care.

Can we bring some of the joy and ease of learning and growing up back into our children’s lives? Yes, we can – and food may be the most pivotal piece.

This show is about the ways that food, fats, and fungus (yup, fungus) may be working against your child’s efforts to learn, grow, thrive, and experience more success with friends and studies.

Jill co-founded the Boulder Campus of The Joshua School. She served on the Boards of The Joshua School and the Autism Society of Colorado.
