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

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….
