About Renae

As a dietitian, how to create great relationships with children and food has always been my passion. When I had my daughter and started thinking about how to feed her I realized firsthand how harsh the mommy shaming can be. Some of the worst shaming happens around food and what you feed your kids! I felt compelled to start New Ways Nutrition to help parents build a foundation for feeding. I help parents learn how to keep their kids safe and how to prevent picky eating, while giving them the confidence to do the rest of the feeding in their own way. A way that's right for their family.
