Baby Steps Nutrition

Empower families to make positive changes every day that have a lasting impact.

As a pediatric dietitian with an extensive experience in healthcare settings coupled with my passion for holistic health and wellness, I use a “whole picture” approach to care.

“Empowered and confident parents raise empowered and confident children”

Parenting life can feel so complicated! The amount of health and nutrition-related information and services available are overwhelming; we are constantly bombarded with opinions and advice that are disguised as fact over fiction.

I work with children and their families to bridge the gap between credible and up-to-date information and practical tools to apply in their daily lives for more harmony and joy

our goal is happy, healthy children with building blocks for lifelong health!

Why work with a Registered Dietitian?​

While some RDN’s may call themselves nutritionists, not all nutritionists can call themselves registered dietitians. “Nutritionist” is an unregulated term in the United States and practitioners may have varying degrees of education and training in nutrition; anyone can call themselves as such.

On the other hand, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist has completed an undergraduate program in nutrition and a one year clinical internship program. Registered Dietitian Nutritionists must pass a national exam administered by the American Dietetic Association and maintain their registered status through continuing education and advanced degrees/certifications for areas of specialization and be registered with the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR). Be sure to check a person’s background and credentials to ensure you’re receiving evidence-based, credible and sound nutrition advice.
