about the author
After giving birth to a premature son with numerous medical issues, I learned that breastfeeding and an all-natural diet would give him the best chance of someday being medication-free. Ten years, and tons of research later, I am inspired to share my accomplishments... and warn of my mistakes.
In 2007 I became a trained spokesperson for the Feingold Association, dedicated to using diet to help combat the 4 Aâ€™s: asthma, allergies, autism, and ADHD (It is estimated that 1:3 children are now diagnosed with at least one of these aliments). I am also a nationally (United States) certified BradleyÂ® Natural Childbirth instructor advocating for unmedicated births. I have recently spoken on behalf of Feingold for ADHASA, a South African organization dedicated to help those learning to live with ADD and ADHD. Most recently Iâ€™ve been asked by Feingold to head the South African side of Feingold, both online and in speaking engagements.
Feeding my children homemade, healthy food is the most rewarding job I have ever had, but I did feel overwhelmed and frustrated at times. I hope that through chatting to parents through sites such as these, as well as offering one-on-one consults, parents will obtain the knowledge and confidence they need to ensure healthy eating habits for the future.
As a result of my experience with my children, my love of all things natural, and my nutrition education through Feingold, I started Nurture Naturally in 2013. The aim is to make healthy options easy and affordable. For those working, busy or kitchen-phobic parents, I offer a wide variety of healthy options to ensure babyâ€™s health. Nurture Naturally makes baby food the way it should beâ€”naturally. The food is free of preservatives, fillers, additives, sweeteners, flavours, and colours. Instead it is full of tastes, textures, and nutrients essential to babyâ€™s constantly growing body.
I strongly believe that everyone would benefit from a natural diet and limited artificial substances.
