Trained to use the SOS Feeding Approach for Selective (Fussy) Eaters
I trained as a a dietitian while raising three teenagers, so I fully understand the challenges of maintaining a healthy diet amidst a busy and demanding lifestyle. I am passionate about helping people, especially young people, overcome selective eating, develop healthy eating habits, and improve their mental well-being through nutrition. I take an individualised approach to each client, listening to their needs and concerns, and working together, look for ways to build a sustainable nutrition plan that works for them.
Having encountered many families that have difficulty with fussy eaters, I trained in the SOS approach to feeding. The SOS approach to feeding uses positive reinforcement in a sequential method that helps selective eaters to gradually overcome feeding challenges. My approach is to work collaboratively with families and create a supportive environment that encourages children to explore new foods and build positive relationships with healthy eating. My mission is to make mealtimes fun and enjoyable, free from stress and anxiety. Reach out to schedule an appointment and let me help you and your family overcome your feeding challenges.
