    It sounds like your daughter has put a higher priority on work, Uni and sport and perhaps doesn't recognise the importance of nutrition in stabilising mood. It may also be because she has too many demands on her time or that she has problems around eating, especially in the mornings? A nutritious smoothie is quick, easy to make and portable.
