I’ve been trying to change a lot in my life at the moment like eating healthy and exercising and I’ve been quite happy about it but when getting around lunch time I’ve been very snappy and grumpy and I need to change how I’m feeling for my kiddos.

Ask your question

  • When you find the secret to this, please let me know (although its not just around lunch time). Sounds like you are doing all the right things – eating healthy and exercising. The other thing I would suggest is that you make sure you do something for you (for example painting, arts, a bath). I don’t think you can be happy if you don;t know who you are.



  • Eating nutritious wholefood will feed your brain, body and moods. It will help you cope with anything by giving you the nutrition and energy, but more importantly lift your moods. Avoid snacking on junk food which brings you down once your blood sugar drops. Try starting your day with a bowl of fruit, gives you quick energy and if you include banana will increase your serotonin levels.



  • To be honest with you, I still am a grumpy and tired mum by the time lunchtime rolls around.
    I have learnt to get up earlier then my children and just enjoy some alone time eg have a coffee, read a book something just for you.
    Then if your kids still sleep then during that time I did not do any housework just took time out for me.if they don’t sleep then I still send my 2children (9 and 6 yr old) to their room for an hour they can occupy themselves for that long it is good for them and good for you
