  3. Add zinc to their diet: Zinc-deficient toddlers may be difficult to settle so add sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, tahini – perfect in Bliss Balls – and pumpkin seeds to their diet. Lamb and beef are also good sources of zinc. 
  4. Make use of magnesium: Imagine how you feel after a big Epsom salt bath – like your body has melted! Magnesium is a muscle relaxant that relaxes and de-stresses all muscles and aides falling asleep. Increase green leafy vegetables with a Baked Potato with Spinach and Cheese, or have a bath with Epsom salts and two drops of lavender essential oil. Encourage a longer bath if possible by reading their favourite book.
