About the Author

I’m a pragmatic dietitian who has worked with many families over the years, learning from the many of them, and my own too, and allowing my recommendations to evolve.

My aim is to share professionally sound and personally tested suggestions, based on the latest research, with a bit of mother-knows-best intuition thrown in as needed.

As you struggle, know that I do, too. For example, at the age of 2, my darling younger child picked up a piece of broccoli, wrinkled her face, and announced “its green!!! I am NOT eating it!!” She repeated this about a week later. I thought maybe I should find another career because I had failed. But, I’ve stuck with it (on all fronts!) and want you to benefit and grow from my insights and those of many others.

Take Heart. It’s a process with time in on your side.

And, yes, as of this posting, my daughter is eating her greens.
