SHANNON SIMPSON CNP, BHK, TRP, CPT
Shannon is a 2016 Vancouver campus graduate, currently practicing in Courtenay, BC. She is the founder of Whole Health Family Wellness, where she provides programs and resources that focus on teaching children nutrition. Shannon is the creator of the “Mindful Meals” Placemat, which was created to encourage kids to slow down and pay attention to the food they eat. After volunteering at Huband Park Elementary with the Salad Bar program for a year, Shannon took it over and made it her mission to get kids more connected to their food. She grew the program to be the largest elementary school salad bar program across Canada. In the process of trying to find a way to get the kids to be more mindful of the amount of food that was being wasted, she created the “Mindful Meals” placemat. As a local mom with a passion for all kids to have nutritional education, she believes this placemat can be used as a tool and great conversation piece at the dinner table and school lunch hours. Shannon strongly believes we need to teach our kids how to connect to their food by slowing down, practicing gratitude and using all their senses to fully enjoy their food. When we create a healthy relationship with food, we also create a healthy relationship with our families, our communities and Mother Earth.
