Jennifer and Family

Hi, I'm Jennifer

I’m a mom, wife, registered dietitian, and the founder of Kids Eat in Color®.

When I was a new mom, I learned that feeding kids is tricky. My first child started to fall off the growth chart as a little guy, and I realized how much effort can go into feeding a child. I took my angst and specialized in feeding children and picky eating. After months of research, I formulated an approach. I started making small, evidence-based tweaks at mealtimes hoping to end the food struggles and reduce our stress – and it worked!

Since then, I’ve been sharing my knowledge with other parents and built Kids Eat In Color and our team of experts to be the resource I wished I had when searching for ways to feed my kids. I’m professional, and also a real-life parent and I make sure that all our guides, courses and tools bring practical strategies to families.

So whether you are a parent feeling stressed about mealtime, defeated by extreme picky eating, or just need some help with meal ideas, the team and I are here for you.

Here at Kids Eat in Color, we know that small changes and a little color make big differences in children’s health.
