I Write about Nutrition for Kids

As a nutrition writer who writes about child nutrition and feeding, my learning curve has been wide and steep.

Early in my career as a pediatric nutritionist, I wrote scientific research articles and textbook chapters.

Now, I translate the science into understandable tips and practical advice for parents and practitioners on my weekly blog, childhood nutrition articles, and in the books with which I have written and been involved.

Fearless Feeding by Jill Castle, MS, RDN and Maryann Jacobsen, MS, RDN

My experiences as a childhood nutritionist and mom have shaped my vision about nutrition.

So much so, I partnered with a like-minded dietitian and wrote a comprehensive resource on childhood nutrition called Fearless Feeding: How to Raise Healthy Eaters from High Chair to High School.

Fearless Feeding breaks down nutrition and feeding for each stage of childhood, including infancy, toddlerhood, childhood and adolescence.

My book for young athletes is 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. It showcases the latest science in sports nutrition for the young athlete.
