DIETITIAN, NUTRITIONIST, AUTHOR & SPEAKER
You know that food and nutrition are important to you and your family.
But you’re frustrated with feeding your family: finding the time and energy to meal plan and then struggling with dinner-time bribes and battles.
Or maybe you’re interested in Baby-led Weaning but have no idea how to actually do it.
I’m passionate about helping parents make mealtimes more peaceful and raise children who have a healthy relationship with food.

A Registered Dietitian is a health professional who has earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition from a University, completed a year-long dietetic internship, and written a registration exam.
Dietitians are also required to be a member of their provincial College of Dietitians and complete yearly competencies.
The titles “Dietitian”, “Registered Dietitian” and “Registered Nutritionist” are protected in Alberta. Be sure to check for these titles when you are looking for reliable nutrition information. However, the term “Nutritionist” is not protected in many provinces. Nutritionists may have varying levels of training and formal nutrition education, or none at all.
Dietitians do not offer a one-size-fits-all approach, and consider other aspects beyond calories and nutrients such as taste and enjoyment of food, cooking skills and how and why you eat. Not just what you eat.
In short, dietitians take a holistic approach to find solutions that fit for you.
