JHP07: Raising Healthy Eaters with Dr. Rachel Schwartzman

—  found in  Family  —

It was such a joy to speak with Rachel Schwartzman and I loved chatting with her about all things kids and family nutrition – a topic I am deeply passionate about (as you may already know!).

Rachel Schwartzman

Rachel Schwartzman is a licensed naturopathic doctor, birth doula, and mom to three busy kids. She maintains a family-focused naturopathic practice in Toronto (and has just opened a new clinic, which you can learn more about below!), where she works at bringing health and wellness to all. She is also the co-organizer of The Bump to Baby show, Toronto's first family health show devoted to better family choices.

Whether you're currently a parent or planning on being one someday, there is something in here for you!

Listened to the podcast and was interested in the comment on infrared sauna. At what age do you think safe to expose a child to A Sauna?
