“Raising healthy kids is one of the hardest jobs of parenthood – from picky eating, childhood obesity, food allergies, sports nutrition, and eating disorders to the endless doubts about what to feed your children.” – Jill Castle
Jill Castle is a registered dietitian and America’s Childhood Nutrition Expert. She is the author of Eat Like a Champion: Performance Nutrition for Your Young Athlete, co-author of Fearless Feeding: How to Raise Healthy Eaters from High Chair to High School, founder of the blog Just the Right Byte, and creator of The Kids Healthy Weight Project, an online nutrition and feeding course for parents.

Communication and connection are the keys!
