the program will cover…



The feeding framework

Take a deep dive into the framework of feeding: the how and why behind feeding our little ones.

We’ll dive into our own relationship with food and talk about the feelings that we, as parents and caregivers, bring to the table and how that can affect our little ones.



Practical strategies & behavioral guidance

Does your little one take two bites and say “all done?” Are they throwing food or running around the table at mealtimes?

We’ll take a dive into strategies to combat these behaviors in a respectful and peaceful approach. We’ll talk about the language to use at mealtimes to make to create a stress-free environment and one where you AND your child want to be present.



Methods for introducing variety

We’ll take a deep look into popular strategies of introduce new foods, and how we can get our little ones interacting with these foods and on their way to expanding the foods they will eat.

We’ll talk about these strategies in baby steps and you will have an action plan to move forward. We’ll work with the foods your child is already eating to come up with this plan.



Key nutrients and packing that nutrition punch

Otherwise known as nutrition 101.

We’ll talk all about nutrition and how we can make sure your child is meeting their nutrition needs (even if they have a selective diet).

We’ll talk about growth and development to make sure your child is at the top of the game.



Meal planning and putting it all together

So we have big goals and plans, now what?

We’ll create a meal and feeding plan for you to move forward, so you are armed and ready to work on feeding with your family.

We’ll come up with new ideas and talk about the overall framework to feeding.


getting our child to eat more

Rachel is awesome! She's so easy to talk to, caring and was respectful of our family's dietary choices and preferences.

She had great ideas on how to get our child to eat more and it's working!

registered dietitian and pediatric feeding expert


Hi! I’m Rachel.

I am a registered dietitian and pediatric feeding expert. Working with children and families is my passion.  I’ve worked in classroom, clinical, and academic environments, including developing nutrition education curricula for children, inpatient and outpatient practice in a pediatric hospital, and teaching nutrition at a local college. Over the past several years, I have been fortunate enough to combine my past education and experience into my own methodology to help families on their nutrition journey. 

Now that I have two young daughters, food is of paramount importance.  I am here to help you foster a healthy relationship with food for your children and family.  As parents and caregivers, we have the power to help our kids trust their bodies and the foods they are eating.  Let’s work on that together.




The Peaceful Mealtimes Coaching Group is for you if you…

  • Are ready to feel less stressed at mealtimes

  • Want to stop thinking about feeding all the time, and be able to enjoy family mealtimes

  • Are ready for a new approach to feeding

  • Don’t want to be bribing, forcing or creating power struggles at the table


I couldn’t be happier

Rachel is a kind, thorough, and very knowledgeable dietitian who truly helped us come up with a plan that fit our needs. Our picky 4 (now 5) year old son was starting to develop an unhealthy relationship with food - he saw it as something that got in his way when he just wanted to play. He didn’t want to sit and eat, and that caused many arguments and tantrums surrounding mealtimes.

After Rachel listened to our concerns and hopes for our son, she gave us a solid place to start, and it worked. Initially we were hesitant to seek out help, as we thought it should be something we could handle, but I couldn’t be happier that we sought out Rachel.

She genuinely cares about her clients, and it showed during our time spent with her. If you’re in need of some guidance, don’t hesitate; you won’t regret it!

more fun and less stress

We started the peaceful mealtimes group course with Rachel when our daughter was 2 years old. We loved the information she provided to the group and was also impressed how she tailored strategies to fit each family’s needs.

The course gave us valuable insight and ideas on how to approach mealtimes with our daughter. It helped us reshape our thinking which has led to more fun, more experimentation and overall less stress when it comes to mealtime.

We will meet virtually once a week, for an hour, on a time decided by the group. We will also schedule two one-on-one sessions throughout the group.

You’ll receive PDFs of all information we discuss including worksheets and assignments.

Each call will contain an action item or short homework assignment, so the more you put into the group, the more you get out of it.

I am all-in on your success and getting you to more peaceful mealtimes. You will have access to me throughout the program.
