“One of the most important things a parent can do is leave a legacy of pleasant meals, nourishing food and a healthy attitude about food and body.”
I am a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) located in Connecticut.
As a pediatric dietitian nutritionist, I have been trained in the specialized field of nutrition for infants, toddlers, children and teens, and have had myriad experience working with them in a variety of settings.
I have helped families with picky eating, childhood obesity, food allergies, eating disorders, and specialized diets for medical problems, to name a few. I’ve also helped families navigate getting meals on the table, healthy snacks, and the endless doubt about what to feed their kids.
As a childhood nutrition expert, I have had over 23 years of knowledge and experience and am also a mother (of 4). My passion is working on behalf of children of all ages, helping improve their health and wellness, and helping parents be the best feeders, supporters, and home front nutrition experts they can be.
My philosophy is this: It’s not just about WHAT kids eat — It’s also about HOW to feed them and the WHY behind their behavior around food. This trifecta is the heart of childhood nutrition and feeding.
My goal? To change the conversation from food to feeding and to take nutrition to the next level — a modern and deeper understanding of childhood nutrition, with a more comprehensive, positive approach that benefits the entire family.
I do this through my writing, speaking engagements, corporate consulting and private counseling.
