Empowering you to confidently nourish your family

Nutritionist. Mother. Author. Speaker. Consultant.

Hello and Welcome!

If you’ve landed here, you’ve probably got some questions about your children and food. Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to be here.

Perhaps you’re a first time parent, and you’re wondering how to feed your baby. Maybe you’re worried that your child isn’t eating enough of the “right” foods, or you’re concerned because he seems to eat too much! Are you frustrated with hearing “I don’t like it” when you serve a meal you have put love and energy into preparing? Or maybe you’re just overwhelmed with the sheer weight of having to think about all that goes along with feeding your children every single day.

Whatever your questions and concerns are, you’ve come to the right place! Whether our children are toddlers or teens, we all have something in common: we love our children, and we want them to eat well and be healthy. Our time with our children is limited- yes, they will one day grow up and move out! Let’s be sure to use that precious time to connect with them, rather than fight over eating. What better way to do that than to sit down to a pleasant family meal? When we offer our family food, and we eat with them, we are giving them so much more than nutrients. We are giving them nourishment. Of course, as a nutritionist, I know that nutrients are important. But I prefer to take a more holistic approach.

Definition of nourish

  • To sustain with food or nutriment; supply what is necessary for life, health, and growth.
  • To cherish, foster, keep alive.
  • To nurture, rear.

Feeding our children does not have to be complicated or stressful.

I believe that you have all that it takes to nourish your family! Starting With the general philosophy on how to approach food and eating that you will find here, you will be on the right path. After all, you are the expert on your own family, and you know your children better than anyone else does.

Remember that you are your children’s role models, and you are guiding them to grow up with a healthy relationship to food and eating. Sometimes this means that we need to have the courage to look at and improve our own relationship to food, so that we can confidently pass our values onto our children.

Take a few more moments and explore. I promise you that all the tools are here for you to begin your journey to be empowered, so that you can confidently nourish your family.

Here's what Breastfeeding Today had to say about my first book

Feeding a healthy young infant is pretty straightforward: he shows hunger cues; you breastfeed him. You know that your breast milk is the healthiest choice for him, but once that cherubic little nurser grows older, figuring out the best approach to feeding him healthy foods becomes more complex. Babies’ bodies mature at different rates. Children become little people with their own personalities. Food aversions are real. Doctors, friends, and family members all have something to say. Parents are confronted with all kind of conflicting advice on foods, products and techniques that can leave them baffled. Enter Katja Leccisi….
