“I want to make the evidence come alive, translating it into practical information that families and professionals can use right away.”
As a childhood nutrition writer, my learning curve has been wide and steep. Early in my career as a childhood nutritionist, I wrote scientific research articles and textbook chapters.
Now, I translate the science into understandable tips and practical advice for parents and practitioners in my monthly writing and in the books with which I have been involved.
My experiences as a childhood nutritionist and mom have shaped my modern vision about nutrition. So much so, I partnered with a like-minded dietitian and wrote a comprehensive resource on childhood nutrition: Fearless Feeding: How to Raise Healthy Eaters from High Chair to High School.
My most recent project is a new book called Eat Like a Champion: Performance Nutrition for Your Young Athlete.
This book is for parents and coaches of young athletes aged 8 to 18 and showcases the latest science in sports nutrition for young athletes.
Not only do you get the science aimed at kids and teens, you get practical advice for how to put it into daily practice. This book is a game changer for young athletes! You can read more about the book here.
I have also written for other websites, such as USA Swimming, US Rowing, the National Alliance for Youth Sports magazine, Sporting Kids, a site for children ages 0-4 called Bundoo, About.com, and Wee Feed.
You’ll also find me as the author of the nutrition chapter in ToughLOVE, a parenting anthology from Simon & Schuster.
Here are the links where you can find my writing–feel free to poke around!
I’ve also published a few e-books and e-guides for parents. And, you’ll find numerous handouts and down-loadables across the website.
