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, nutrition classes, and The Nourished Child 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 [wonderful] kids, so I intimately know the ups and downs, challenges and successes of feeding kids. 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.

More importantly, I challenged insurance companies, institutions, organizations, and corporations to step up and proactively help educate new and seasoned parents through systematic, systemic educational programs in nutrition and feeding children of all ages. I hope you watch!
