About Homeschooling Dietitian Mom
(Post may contain affiliate links).
My husband is a professional cook and I am a dietitian. We work well together and this 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 14 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.
