Dr Clare Bailey Gives Us Food For Thought
Following on from the first and very successful Davenies Book Fest week in October for the boys, we welcomed our first author for parents and staff.
Dr Clare Bailey, a former Davenies parent, came to talk to parents and staff about Healthy Eating and Healthy Guts. We were treated to some hilarious (if not revolting) stories about her husband Michael Moseley and his experiments with tapeworms and the rather alarming state of our digestive system! Dr Bailey helped us to understand the facts about our ‘microbiome’. How we can help them to help us be healthier, not only in our physical state, but also mentally too. A quick demonstration of making fermented food inspired us all to go away and create our own.
A very thought provoking evening was had by all – you could say it gave us all food for thought!
