In order to get to the bottom of the art and science of feeding kids, Natalia trained as a Registered Dietitian at Columbia University, Teachers College in New York.
And as a mom of three, she is very familiar with the challenges of feeding her family nutritious meals.
When her older daughter was small, Natalia made her share of feeding mistakes and battled a case of extreme picky eating that triggered her interest in pediatric nutrition.
In addition to her pediatric private practice in NYC, Natalia has run nutrition workshops for parents and worked as a pediatric nutrition consultant for various companies and agencies including Head Start.
In 2013 Natalia launched Feeding Bytes – an online school for help parents where they can get the best professional advice on feeding their children from the comfort of their home at a reasonable price.
As a national pediatric nutrition expert, Natalia has contributed to and been featured in Parents Magazine, Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine, Kiwi magazine, Huffington post and numerous other media outlets.
With introduction of solids as one of her specialty areas, she contributed her nutritional expertise to Real Baby Food book by Jenna Helwig.
She is also thrilled to be invited to blog on Scoop on Food blog at parents.com.
