    Let’s Make Feeding your Kids Easy

    Hi! I’m Jill Castle, MS, RDN, a pediatric nutritionist and registered dietitian. As a child nutrition expert, I help parents nourish healthy kids with nutritious foods and recipes. I encourage them to use effective feeding strategies, and establish healthy habits that last a lifetime. Additionally, I train other healthcare professionals in child nutrition and feeding so they can help more parents like you.

    I’ve worked with babies, toddlers, children and teens in a variety of settings from hospitals and private practice to consulting and speaking, for over 28 years. Through my nutrition books, online nutrition classes, my blog and podcast, I help parents like you excel at raising a healthy child, inside and out.

    I’m a mom, too, and have raised four kids, so I intimately know the ups and downs, challenges and successes of feeding children. Poke around my website — there’s a lot to discover!

I challenged my audience to shift their focus from a “food will fix our children’s health problems” to a modernized perspective on child nutrition, including the trifecta of food, feeding and childhood development.

    I hope you watch!
