What is The Root Cause all about?
We help parents like you win The War on Vegies.
We help you minimise processed "pretend" foods in your child's school lunchbox, and overcome the parent-child power struggles over food.
We teach your children how to understand their food.
We give them the power and motivation to make healthier food choices, so they can take responsibility for what goes in their mouth.
We work with schools, child-cares & community groups.
We host workshops, run online programs, and offer pre-packaged course materials that help educate children and parents all over Australia.
You CAN change your kids' eating habits.
Enter your email below for regular free recipes and healthy-eating tips, designed to save you time, help you cook healthy snacks your kids will love, and pack healthier lunchboxes - and never have to fight the War on Vegies again.

Maybe you're a parent
and you need help with making your children's lunchboxes fast, healthy and simple to make.
Maybe you're a teacher
and you want to give your students the gift of better concentration, and teach them more about what they eat.
Maybe you're the cook
and you simply don't know where to begin, to improve your family's eating habits.
Wherever you are is perfect.
If you’re ready to make a change, so are we.
Let’s get started.
The Root Cause Australian Tour
We are so passionate about children's health that, together with my husband Israel and our kids Indrani (9) and Rilien (5), we're taking a stand for Australia’s children.
We’ve sold our home, enrolled our kids in distance education, and re-homed our cats, so we can take our message and our education programs to over 10,000 children and their families, Australia-wide.
We’re travelling the great Australian landscape in our Big Green Bus on our mission to Transform Children’s Health in Australia, One Lunchbox at a Time.
We want your kids – and ours – to grow up healthier and stronger, and live fuller, longer lives than ever before.

Who Is Behind The Root Cause?
Hi, I'm Belinda, and I'm a Mum on a Mission to Transform Children's Health in Australia, One Lunchbox at a Time.
I'm a mum of two kids and a Health and Wellness Coach, and I'm extremely passionate about children's health.
Did you know one in four Aussie kids is overweight or obese, and today's generation of children will likely have a shorter life expectancy than their parents for the first time in decades?
My personal experience of this was at a private boys' school swimming carnival, when three out of every five boys I saw on the starting blocks had man-boobs.
Then and there I vowed to do everything I could to stop childhood obesity in its tracks, and give my kids and their generation a healthy future.
