helping you raise
happy, healthy and
independent eaters

Hi, I'm Alyssa

I'm here to help you raise confident eaters. I'm a registered dietitian, mama of two, and lover of all things food. I am passionate about helping you build a toolbox that makes mealtimes less stressful, expands your little's accepted food list while preserving their ability to listen to their bodies. I strongly believe the best way we can do this is together, so thank you mama for being here!
