About Homeschooling Dietitian Mom
My husband is a professional cook, and I am a dietitian. We work well together, and this is one of the main reasons we decided to do this blog thing. When I first started blogging in 8/2018, I wasn’t sure what exactly I wanted to focus on. However, with my subscribers and fellow bloggers help and insight, I’ve developed a clearer vision of where I want my focus to be.
A major part of being healthy involves not just the physical pounds, but the emotional and psychological baggage that usually accompanies struggles with self-image, weight, and food.
As a result of my own struggles with self-image, weight, and food,
I have a passion for helping others to learn how to be all they can be health-wise, no matter what the scale reads.
I also want to help you teach your kids how to make better health choices, no matter what their age or unique needs.
Is Your Child a Picky Eater?
My son, Nathan, is a picky eater. But he has good reasons. For example, he is allergic to peanuts and is intolerant to other nuts, including cashews. Also, he was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), and he has had texture issues with foods since he was six months old. Thus, I know a few things about how to get a kid to eat better.
(By the way, check out these posts which have recipes attached for High Protein Mac-n-Cheese, Garlic and Pintos, Homemade Tomato Vegetable Soup, and Homemade Chicken Nuggets. My husband and I have snuck some vegetables into our son’s diet using the mac-n-cheese and the garlic and pintos. The homemade chicken nuggets are to encourage at-home cooking, especially for those kiddos that limit the foods they will eat.
Do you have it all figured out?
I don’t and neither does my husband!
But we have learned a lot over the past 17 years, and we look forward to sharing our experiences with you to help make your life around the table easier. I know that together we can help our kids eat their way to happier, healthier lives.

My name is Deborah Hanyon, and I have been a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist since 2000. I earned my BS Degree in Foods and Nutrition in 1996, and my MPH in Public Health Nutrition in 1999. I am also a certified Health Coach and Group Fitness Instructor with the American Council of Exercise. I have had many lifelong interests. As a result, I have studied diverse and seemingly unrelated subjects. For example,
I’ve worked in customer service my whole life, starting with my first job at McDonald’s, when I was 16. I have worked in many different environments, including newspaper advertising, credit card administration, restaurant and hospitality, manufacturing, and home security. After graduating from College, I worked for the WIC Program as well as in long term care/rehab hospitals. I’ve also worked in the classroom setting, tutoring at-risk and special education youth. And I currently tutor dietetic student interns struggling to pass the rigorous RD exam.
As my son gets closer to graduation, I am starting to focus more on helping women with dietary challenges. For example, I’ve recently added customizable meal plans for women (and men) who would like to eat more wholesome foods but don’t know where to start.
