Jen House has been Baby Gourmet’s go-to nutritionist since my sister Jen and I founded the company.

Her insight into assisting us to ensure we provide the best tasting, highest quality and nutritional products, has been invaluable.

Her attention to detail, responsiveness and entrepreneurial spirit has been a big part of our success.

As a caring Mother herself, we share the values of early healthy eating habits, while not sacrificing taste!

On behalf of the Calgary’s Child team, thank you so much for appearing on our segment on Monday.

As always, you did a fabulous job! You are always so comfortable in front of the camera and the information/advice you gave was so easy to follow and really helpful to our viewers.

I always really enjoy watching your segments. Thanks again!

We have had the opportunity to work with Jennifer to analyze our menus based on the meals that we provide to our students in our program.

She was very helpful in food recommendation to improve what we offer.

Her expertise provided us with information regarding what to look for in labels, how to make meals less time consuming, and more.

We chose to work with Jennifer because she understood what our program strive for towards providing healthy meals to children which impacts their development.

Thank you Jennifer for sharing your knowledge and helping us learn more.

We operate a small daycare and decided to seek the advice of a dietitian in order to ensure that we were providing the best, most balanced nutrition possible to the children in our care.

First Step Nutrition designs two-week alternating menus for us, which we change three times per year.

These menus introduce the children to new, interesting, healthy food choices and are very kid friendly.

The children love the meals and snacks we serve them and their parents love knowing that we offer only the best food choices.

The menus also make preparation easier for us.

Working with Jennifer has really improved our quality of care and is remarkably affordable.
