About the Event
Are you a busy family with hardly any time to cook fresh meals? Are you dealing with making separate meals for kids and adults? Are you spending your money on to-go foods/ meal kits? Do you want your kids eating more veggies? Do you want your kids eating less sugary foods? Do you just need help getting a plan of action in how the whole family can be involved in making healthy meals? Or if you're a young family, do you want to get your babies/toddlers started on the right path early?
If you answer "yes" to more than 1 of these then keep reading. You're not alone, and you CAN do this. This is a short 7 week program, but these changes will last forever. I will be supporting you and guiding you along this path to health, wellness, and a lot more healthy home-made meals.
This is not a diet plan, or a recipe providing (30min meals) program. This is helping you decide what is BEST for your family, and how to nourish their bodies (even with dietary restrictions).
Keep reading- contact me for a free consultation and let's get you started.
I have space for 6 clients so RSVP soon to secure your spot and find out when our next session launches.
Here’s how my program is different:
Focus on family friendly meals- being a mom and a teacher, I learned what the struggles are for working parents with limited time, and I also saw what foods impact children while they are in school.
Heritage meals- being first generation and having friends and family who are first or second generation I know how important cultural foods are to our families. Many of us struggle to balance nutrition, time, and also incorporating our cultural foods that sometimes take a lot more time than we have. We all have different kitchens, so let’s embrace it.
Individualized- with the time to connect with you 1-1 I can support your family’s needs in diet, time, food restrictions, and general life styles. We can’t all eat the same food, we don’t all come from the same background, and some are more/less comfortable in the kitchen. I work with you, where you’re at.
Health- To anyone who needs extra support with their own personal journey for health goal setting, I offer an opportunity to make changes and be held accountable at this time as well. (This is free to you at this time). This is NOT a diet or nutrition program, but an opportunity to make changes that include self-care, nutrition, and exercise.
- 7 weeks where we will work slowly and incrementally to make small changes that will last a life-time. (I work with one of you and not the whole family, unless you’d like everyone to be involved)
- Includes 6-7 video modules/ webinars (for those who can join live-40 min), weekly one-on-one phone calls (30-40 min).
- Private Facebook group to share additional resources, videos, articles and an opportunity to share our progress.
- 2 free online cooking classes for the whole family.
Program Summary: Nutrition for YOUR family being mindful of our environment and children’s developmental needs.
