I believe in the right of every person to EAT HAPPY!
I believe that every child & every grown-up has the right to feel good about the body they live in, ALWAYS. Without question or condition.
I believe that every child is capable of growing up to be a competent and confident eater no matter what the nutrition challenge is.
I believe that every grown-up is capable of healing their relationship with food too!
I delight in helping families put the joy back into eating together.
