"Thank you for offering the class today, I feel like I got so much out of it! I just happened to have sweet potatoes and ripe bananas at home so Abe and I baked your mini muffin recipe this afternoon. The whole time we we're mixing them up he was saying, "But I don't like sweet potato!" Even though I wanted to get frustrated I just shrugged it off, saying, "Well maybe you don't like it yet."
Once they were finished I left one on a plate and didn't pay him much attention and pretty soon he'd eaten a whole one and was asking for more. " - Karin M, mom to Abe, 2.5 years
We hesitated to contact a registered dietitian because we did not want to feel judged. Fortunately, we found Rachel when our son was six years old! Rachel is extremely down to earth, plus she has her own young children so she understands the challenges of feeding kids. Her counseling was evidence-based and judgement-free!
“Rachel opened my eyes to a better approach to mealtimes and feeding, as well the importance of creating a relationship with food for my daughter. I also came away with a really helpful list of ways I can make dinner more fun and inviting, which has made her open to more new foods, without any coaxing. Mealtimes aren't stressful for either one of us anymore and I am so grateful to Rachel for that! ”

“Rachel’s webinar was exactly what I needed as I waded through information about solids - especially contemplating spoon fed purées vs baby-led weaning. Based in facts and research, I got the information I needed in a completely non-judgmental way. The webinar provided resources, food ideas, nutritional information, safety tips, and more. In the end, I felt confident approaching solids as a mix of the two methods."
