Good nutrition does not have to be complicated.
Hello! I'm a San-Diego based Registered Dietitian and Mom working to make raising healthy, happy, confident kids a bit easier on all you parents out there.
My personal journey to a healthy relationship with food, body confidence, and self-love was far more challenging and troubled than it should have been. The last thing I want is for any child to experience the distorted relationship with food, or the discomfort in their own skin that I did for so many years.
Many parents feel lost when their children struggle with issues related to nutrition and body image. We are confused about how to feed our kids to accommodate their unique needs. Our bodies go through so many changes, and we face so many challenges as we grow. It's increasingly difficult for parents and families to navigate these changes in a modern world with social media, bullying, and peer influence that pressures our children to compare themselves to others and squeeze themselves into some acceptable mold.
That's exactly why I've dedicated myself and this space to serve as a resource to you, particularly when it comes to family nutrition and body positivity. Whether you have a picky eater or one who loves every food under the sun; whether your child is big or small; even if you work the equivalent of 2.5 full time jobs (as most moms do), It is my goal to empower parents everywhere to help their children develop lifelong healthy relationships with food, their bodies, and themselves.
