I started this podcast to be the friend I wished I had when my kids were young and to bring hope to weary parents. I wanted to share what I have learned working in residential treatment and raising my own children impacted by trauma and prenatal alcohol exposure. I pour my heart and soul and hundreds of unpaid hours every month into the production of the FASD Family Life podcast. All that heard work is paying off! Since 2021 the podcast has grown to over 43,000 downloads worldwide. I need your help to keep going and growing. Consider becoming a monthly sponsor. Your gift of $20 per month (or $5 per week) would enable me to keep sharing HOPE and teach the SKILLS needed to reduce stress and improve lives for people with FASD and the families who love them.

This week we are back with my friend Dr Jerrod Brown to continue our series: Threats to Emotional Health. Today Jerrod will dive into the fascinating topic of Sugar as a threat to Emotional Health.
Did you know that the typical Western (American) diet is low in fruits and vegetables, and high in fat and sodium. This diet consists of large portions, high calories, and excess sugar. This excess sugar accounts for more than 13% of the daily caloric intake with beverages constituting 47% of these added sugars. My friends you will want to grab your notebook and your favourite pen for this informative episode with Dr. Jerrod Brown.
