I decided to pull together some of what I think are the most helpful resources that will help you, as a parent, in your journey of feeding your child, or, as a healthcare professional, in your journey as an online health-based business owner. I will update this page as I find resources I think you should know about.
Disclosure: Some of the links on this page are affiliate links. If you purchase through those links, I will receive a commission. I use all of the products and highly regard them! I use them to help parents in my practice or they’ve helped me develop and grow my business.
Resources for Parents
I am dedicated to helping you nourish your child in the best ways possible. From balancing food and meals to feeding in the most positive light, this website is devoted to helping parents be the best feeders they can be so they raise healthy eaters.
I have loads of resources to help you!
Want to Raise a Healthy Eater?
An online program to help you set up a nutritious food system, positive feeding strategy, and lifelong healthy habits so your child grows up eating healthfully, lives at a healthy weight, and has habits that will encourage a lifetime of health and wellness. This is not a dieting course; rather, it’s an empowered education to help you nourish and feed your child while establishing healthy habits and a positive relationship with food. Three levels of programming options are available.
The “bible” on nutrition for kids, covering food, feeding and child development at each stage of childhood.
Customize your weekly meal plan to reflect the nutritional needs of your family, get delicious recipes created by dietitians, and the support you need to be successful (email, video and printables) by being a part of PrePear, an online and mobile app-friendly meal planning membership! The Super Healthy Kids Team has you covered!
If you are struggling with the weekly grind of food shopping, planning, cooking and the overall inspiration and creativity that is required from being the family chef, this is a tool I highly recommend for helping families get unstuck around mealtime ideas and recipes. PrePear offers a FREE TRIAL to get you on the right track and support you along the way.
A free, 7-day email series reviewing what you need to know (and do) to nourish a healthy child.
The workbook that will help you plan a food system, use a positive feeding strategy and instill healthy habits—all to help you nourish your child, inside and out. The workbook is 130 pages and includes worksheets, planners, checklists, and more.
Are you helping your child grow healthy bones? This e-book details what you need to know! It includes food charts, food lists, and meal plans to optimize your child’s calcium intake.
Do you wonder if you’re hitting the mark with nutrients? Those important ones, like iron and vitamin D, that are critical to your child’s health, growth and development? Wonder no more. I’ve got a book full of the “need to know” information, simplified with food charts and nutrient partners that make keeping track (and filling the gaps) of your child’s nutrient intake a breeze.
Snacks…they can make or break your child’s healthy diet and eating habits. Learn the key information about healthy snacks (the who, what and why), plan them with my weekly planner, and get inspired with over 85 healthy ideas!
For Parents of Picky Eaters
A 60-page guide outlining the step-by-step system I use with my pediatric clients as I help them build confidence and skills for trying and liking new food.
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.
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.
Resources I Use in My Business
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.
For The Nourished Child Blog
I use Bluehost as my website hosting service. I’ve been with them for a long time, transitioning from the basic plan to the pro plan and they’ve supported me through all my website changes over the years. [Click on the picture above for more details]
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 e-courses. 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.
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).
The plugin for WordPress.org that I use to publish my podcast on my website and link it to iTunes and other listening platforms such as Stitcher Radio and TuneIn. Click on the link and you’ll get a 30 day free trial if you use the promo code: NourishedChild
Blue Yeti Microphone & Headphones + 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. [Click on the picture to find it on Amazon.]
I use Skype to interview guests for the podcast. (It’s free.)
I use this to record Skype interviews for the podcast.
For My E-Courses
The course hosting platform I use to host The Kids Healthy Weight Project. Future courses will be hosted on this platform as well . I chose this platform because it integrates well with wordpress.org and allows the future possibility of a membership site.
My videos live on this hosting platform. Again, like audio files, video files need to live somewhere other than your website. I also use Wistia because it offers password protection for my videos.
I create and manage my sales checkout pages and product offerings with SamCart.
I have used 99 Designs to create the logos for The Kids Healthy Weight Project and The Nourished Child. 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 host my own webinars using Webinar Jam. It’s easy to use and integrates emails, reminder details, and replays for me. Best of all, I own the platform myself so I can host as many webinars as I like!
For Keeping in Touch with My Tribe
This is my email service provider. I love the power and flexibility of Active Campaign!
My Ad Network
I just starting using an ad network, and Mediavine has proven profitable for me right out of the gate.
