Hi, I’m Bel Smith. I am a mum, a wife, and a Health and Wellness Coach. I am the founder of The Root Cause and my work is to help parents give their children the best health into adulthood.
If you’ve ever thought to yourself: “I really should pack healthier lunch boxes but -”
- I don’t know where to start!
- I don’t have time!
- Packing lunches is already too stressful!
- My kids are fussy eaters!
- I just put in what I know they will eat!
Then don’t worry – you are not alone, many parents are here too. But now, you’ve come to the RIGHT place!
The Root Cause helps you have fun conversations with your children about food, and helps you pack hassle-free healthy lunch boxes.
As the celebrated writer and poet, Maya Angelou said, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” I’m here to help you know better, and then do better, for your family.
Here’s the thing:
Our children love us and look to us to be doing the right thing for them. What we feed them is what they think their bodies need.
As parents, we must not underestimate our Power. If we lead by example by eating and serving the right foods, our children will follow. They look to us for answers. It may not always be easy, but they will follow. And you will reap the rewards with healthier, and better behaved children.
So how can you start making changes when you are time-poor, stressed, and your kids are fussy eaters? Instead of feeling helpless, stressed and knowing you’re probably feeding your children food which you know isn’t the best for their health…

About Bel Smith
The Root Cause was founded by Bel Smith: mother, wife, Health & Wellness Coach and believer in the power of parents.
Bel is a mum on a mission to Transform Children’s Health, One Lunch Box At A Time.
After her husband Israel was diagnosed with depression shortly after their second child was born, Bel started to investigate how they could manage Israel’s depression naturally. Her research led her to The Institute For Integrative Nutrition where she studied to become a Health Coach. During her studies and her own personal research, she uncovered how food and lifestyle factors greatly improved Israel’s overall health and mood.
Bel made significant changes to the food she prepared for the family, aimed specifically to help Israel, but what she discovered was the food changes were having a marked improvement on her daughter’s mood, behaviour and appearance too.
Bel also discovered the easiest way to get children interested in healthy foods was to lead by example and educate them – in a fun and interactive way – about why healthy food was so good for them.
Bel is the creator of the Mad Food Science™ Program. Through this program, she has helped countless children start conversations about health with their parents, eliminating the power struggle and enabling real change to be made in packing healthy lunch boxes.
Bel is also the creator of The 5 Minute Healthy Lunch Box System, and has helped many mums reduce their stress around packing healthy lunch boxes.
With her fun and simple messages about health, Bel gets kids and parents to understand and take responsibility for the food they put in their mouth, and to have meaningful conversations about food without the usual parent child power struggle.
