 My Story

Before becoming a mother I expected parenting to be easy, I’d have a great relationship with my kids, no stress and above all I’d teach them healthy habits, especially healthy eating habits. Surely that would be easy for a pediatric doctor?

Then I had kids.

Little bundles of noise and chaos with minds of their own. I suddenly realised that healthy eating wasn’t as easy as just giving them vegetables and watching them eat. They ate the cookies and left the broccoli. When I encouraged them to eat vegetables they’d either scream or throw them at me.

I developed healthy feeding habits based on current research.

I learnt to be patient and persistent and was amazed by the results. My children love candy and cake like normal kids but I am no longer worried. I am confident that they eat a healthy and balanced diet (including green things) and are learning healthy habits that will follow them into adulthood.

I will share my methods with you, my easy and fun ways to teach your kids healthy eating and living.
