It’s always fun to splurge every now and then...just diving in to dessert or a juicy burger every now and then….And there’s nothing wrong with that!

Picky eaters can be a tough subject to talk about. People like to get all judgy here and talk as if they can do a better job at getting your kids to eat right than you can.

Fast food is always something that I encourage my clients to stay away from.
