Empowering Kids & Teens to Thrive with

Healthy Choices

Cultivating Healthy Relationships with Food and Fostering Nutritional Independence

Welcome to the Nourish & Grow Program, a nutrition program designed to support your child's healthy relationship with food, expand their food choices, and promote a balanced and nutritious diet. Drawing on my experience as a teacher, this program is specifically tailored to address selective eating tendencies while fostering intuitive eating skills.

With this program, our goal is to provide your child with a strong foundation in nutrition basics and empower them to make healthy food choices. Through interactive sessions, we cover a wide range of topics, engaging activities, and valuable resources to make learning about nutrition enjoyable and impactful.

Each session is thoughtfully designed to deliver essential knowledge, practical tools, and important practices for a comprehensive approach to nutrition. We not only focus on nutrition basics but also introduce intuitive eating principles, meal preparation techniques, and meal planning activities to equip your child with the skills to make informed choices and develop lifelong healthy habits.

Throughout the program, your child will receive ongoing support and guidance. We provide helpful handouts, engaging tracking activities, and meaningful homework assignments to reinforce learning and encourage practical application of their newfound knowledge.

Here's what we'll cover in the program:
