When I stood in my first baby’s pediatrician’s office 7 years ago and learned he wasn’t gaining weight, my heart sank through the floor. I learned, I specialized, I felt the angst and aloneness…and still feel it. I didn’t win the “easy-to-feed kid” lottery with either of my kids.
That angst has powered Kids Eat in Color. We’re now millions strong in our very real, tricky, messy paths to keeping our kids fed.
In the past two unpredictable and chaotic years, we’ve worked hard to put good out into the world and help parents everywhere. Here are 10 things that we’re proud of for the ways they’ve helped parents:

If it never helps another person, I will be grateful for it helping our family during a tough time.
Here’s something I never thought I’d talk about on Instagram. But it turns out people had questions about my weight. And I had unexpected answers.
8. Child Nutrition Fellowship
We started the worlds first paid child nutrition fellowship program to help increase racial diversity in the field of dietetics. We have two fellows working their way through school to become registered dietitians, and we’re proud to support these hardworking students.
