I am a Registered Dietitian specializing in prenatal and child nutrition with years of experience working with families through my online classes, workshops and one-on-one counseling. I have also worked as a nutrition consultant for numerous organizations, including Head Start.

You and I can work together to help your child start eating the amount he needs and expand the variety in diet. You will also get specific meal ideas and feeding tips, whether you are puzzled by starting solids, feeding a picky eater, providing nutritious meals with food allergies in mind or planning vegetarian and vegan meals for your family.

 As a mother of three children one of whom used to be extremely picky, I have a first-hand experience trying to feed my family nutritious meals without losing my mind. The evidence based strategies you will learn will reduce the mealtime pressure, help your child eat better right now and also contribute to development of a long tern positive relationship with food.

If you are an expecting or breast-feeding mom looking for the best way to nourish yourself during this crucial period, I am here for you! I will help you identify the potential nutritional “gaps” and you will know exactly how to boost your energy, optimize nutrition and choose a supplement for the best health outcomes for yourself and your baby.

  1. I desperately need your help. I have 3 and a half year old twins diagnosed with autism (mild-medium) and they are very resistant eaters. One is non verbal and she seems willing to try certain things but they do not eat a varried diet and it’s is so stressful i really don’t know what to do.

    I am based in canada so if you can offer some kind of advice I would really appreciate it.

    they don;t really sit at the table for more than 3-4 minutes and one only eats white food but the non verbal one would eat red sauce – they do like to eat fresh fruits but pureed and mac and cheese as their only and main meal…i can sneak veggies in the sauce but it has to stay orange the most extreme case scenario – if it’s white they won;t eat it…they used to eat everything. One also has low muscle tone not sure if that means anything

    they love carbs so they will eat toast or waffles with cream cheese or cheese, butter, but that’s about it.
