Hello, I'm amy!

I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.  I have over 19 years of experience as a pediatric dietitian.  I have spent my career working with families to help provide the best nutrition to their children.  About a decade ago I became a parent and got the chance to start using my own nutrition knowledge on my family.  Before I became a mom I thought that my career would give me an advantage on making sure I provided the right nutrition for my kids.  Well, my kids did not realize that I had a bachelor and master degree in nutrition and honestly did not care.  They had ideas and preferences of their own.  I have had many adventures with my kids as far as feeding is concerned.  There were high points, like when my son tried mushroom and gorgonzola stuffed ravioli with roasted red pepper sauce, and challenging times when my other son became such a cautious eater that he had trouble gaining weight and needed feeding therapy.  I know what it is like to struggle with your child’s nutrition and I know what it is like to have a victory at the dinner table.  I hope to provide families with genuine nutrition advice to help grow your family.

What I enjoy

I love cooking and playing in the kitchen.  You can also see that by the pictures I have included on this page I also enjoy traveling to see beautiful places both near and far.  My family loves to explore National Parks.  I also enjoy learning new things, finding enjoyable ways to exercise and stay in shape, and exploring my home city of Cincinnati, Ohio with my husband and 2 boys ages 11 and 9.
