I aim to empower parents to make decisions in regards to feeding their child based on Ellyn Satter’s division of responsibility and developmentally appropriate nutrition messages. My goal is to alleviate some of their frustrations/concerns about their child’s eating habits and/or body size by using evidence-based interpretations of growth charts, eating behaviors, and nutrition. I offer support on developing a positive body image, which extends more than just “liking” your body, so that parents can model this for their children. My hope is that this work we do together allows both the parents and the child to adopt behaviors that promote body trust and physical, emotional and psychological well being.
