Resources for Child Nutrition
I decided to pull together some of the most helpful nutrition education resources that, in addition to my nutrition classes and nutrition books, will help you, as a parent, in your journey of feeding your child.
And, as a healthcare professional and an online health-based business owner.
I will update this page as I find nutrition resources I think you should know about.
Nutrition Education Resources for Parents
I am dedicated to helping parents nourish their child in the best ways possible.
From balancing food and meals to feeding in the most positive ways, this website is devoted to helping parents like you be the best feeders they can be so they raise healthy children.
I have loads of nutrition education resources to help you! I’m highlighting some of them here, but don’t forget about the hundreds of nutrition articles I have on The Nourished Child blog!
An educational nutrition resource for parents showcasing online nutrition classes and guidebooks. We focus on nutritious food system, positive feeding strategy, and lifelong healthy habits so your child grows up healthy.
The “bible” on nutrition for kids, covering food, feeding and child development at each stage of childhood. Fearless Feeding is a paperback book available on Amazon.

Nutrition Resources For Parents of Picky Eaters
A workbook outlining the step-by-step system I use with in my pediatric practice as I help them build confidence and skills for trying and liking new food.
A program designed for parents of ADHD kids, this online experience will help you nourish and feed your child with nutritious food, feeding strategies that work.

This nutrition class is a DIY, self study program with online modules, printables and more.
Nutrition Education Resources For Parents of Athletes
The complete sports nutrition guidebook for parents of athletes aged 8-18 years.
An online program for young athletes and their parents to learn about sports nutrition.
If you’ve got a growing athlete, you know how important a healthy breakfast is for him or her. I’ve put together 17 different grab-n-go healthy breakfast recipes suitable for young athletes. They’re chock full of protein, carbs and healthy fats. You’ll get over 25 breakfast combo ideas, too!
The dinner hour is a scramble for families with athletes, particularly because the dinner hour and practice or games often collide. Simplify your dinner time with 21 fast and nutritious dinner recipes for young athletes. With the dinner crunch in mind, these recipes maximize your efficiency, while minimizing your time.
Education Resources For Parents of Babies
Your first feeding decision is pretty straight-forward: breastfeed or use an infant formula. But what about later, when it’s time to start solids? Not so easy. And not so straight-forward. From a variety of first foods to the different ways you can feed your baby (spoon, whole foods, etc), the prospect of starting solids can be intimidating and overwhelming. My e-book will help guide you through this important stage of nutrition and feeding your baby.
Other Educational Resources I Love
I think there are a lot of child nutrition books and other, related books that are useful for parents. I’ve collected them over in my nutrition store.
From topics in child nutrition to cookbooks and other products, you’ll find some of my most recommended books and products there.
Additionally, I believe we can learn from other professionals. I particularly like the Innovative Child Therapy Symposium. Learn from other play therapists about child mental health.
Nutrition Resources for Professionals
I get a lot of questions about which resources I use to run my business. To that end, I have compiled the tools and resources I use. I couldn’t do what I do without these tools. I also offer other opportunities for healthcare practitioners so be sure to check them out.
For The Nourished Child Blog
Who do I get my urls from? GoDaddy supplies all of them…and I have a lot of them! GoDaddy allows me link all my websites together by redirecting my urls to my main website.
I use this platform to run my blog, my other websites (Fearless Feeding and Nutrition for Young Athletes), and my nutrition classes. WordPress.org can handle it all and has the power to handle a multi-tiered website.
Until I found Yoast SEO I was blogging blindly! That is, I was just throwing content up there and hoping someone would find it. Now, I am confident in my SEO efforts, mostly because Yoast SEO guides me along the way.
I create all my handouts, picture graphics for the blog, and freebies on Canva. Canva is an invaluable free resource. I use the business option for a small monthly fee.
Pixabay and Flickr Creative Commons
I source many of my blog pictures here. This is a free picture resource, but you must give credit to the photographer and Flickr. I make sure to do this on the photo itself.
I create my sales pages, opt-in pages, pop-up boxes, and registration pages using LeadPages. LeadPages has been a game changer for my business.
For The Nourished Child Podcast
I use Libsyn to host my audio files. They need to live somewhere, otherwise, they will bog down your website (and other websites if you are on a shared system).
Blue Yeti Microphone, Head Set & Pop Filter
The microphone I use to record my podcast; I also use this microphone to record the audio portion of my videos for e-courses. I bought the headphones and pop filter as a package.
I use Zencastr to interview guests for the podcast. (It’s free.) It connects me to my guest and records us on separate tracks which makes it easier to edit.
Resources for My Online Nutrition Classes
My videos live on this hosting platform. Again, like audio files, video files need to live somewhere other than your website. I also use VImeo because it offers password protection for my videos.
I have used 99 Designs to create the logos for The Nourished Child Project and The Nourished Child blog and podcast. They access the designers for you, and the designers compete for the best logo award (which is the one you choose!). It’s a fun and creative way to cull ideas if you’re looking for a fresh brand design. (They also do many other design projects, like brochures, etc.)
I use Zoom as my primary video platform for teaching and running my group programs.
For Keeping in Touch with My Tribe
This is my email service provider. I love the power and flexibility of Convert Kit!
My Ad Network
I just starting using an ad network, and Mediavine has proven profitable for me right out of the gate.
