Good nutrition does not have to be complicated.
As a parent, I often reflect on how difficult my personal journey to health and body confidence was, from elementary school all the way into adulthood. The last thing I want is for my child to experience the troubled relationship with food or the discomfort in his own skin that I did for so many years. Our bodies go through so many changes as we grow, and we face so many challenges along the way. It can be extremely difficult for parents and families as a whole to navigate these changes in a modern world with social media, bullying, and peer influence that encourages our children to squeeze themselves into an acceptable mold. So many parents feel lost when their kids struggle with issues related to nutrition and body image. We are confused about how to feed our kids to accommodate their unique needs. 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. It is my goal to empower parents everywhere to help their children develop lifelong healthy relationships with food, their bodies, and themselves.
