I make feeding toddlers and preschoolers easier and less stressful!
Kacie Barnes, MCN, RDN, LD
If you're looking for help with feeding your young kids - you're in the right place.
I help moms of toddlers and preschoolers find solutions to nourish their families without stress, guilt, or chaos. (OK, maybe there’s always a little bit of chaos when kids are involved!)
This is NOT about perfection and eating kale salads every day. Even with thousands of hours of nutrition education and experience under my belt, I am still just a mom trying to do my best for my family. We eat pizza and ice cream on the weekends, I have a never ending pile of laundry, and I forget to give my kids a bath half the time... wait, does it still count as forgetting when I just don't feel like doing it?
I love connecting with moms. Nutrition is my thing, and my goal is to make feeding your kids a little bit easier. So whatever the problem or hurdle is, I'm here to help!
I'm a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) with a Master of Clinical Nutrition from UT Southwestern. I live in Dallas, TX with my husband and two VERY ENERGETIC kiddos!
The Whole Story
Working as a dietitian is a second career for me. I studied Economics and Business at NYU for undergrad, and subsequently earned a Master of Public Administration (MPA) at Syracuse University.
I worked in government policy for a little while, and as a Certified Personal Trainer at a gym on the side, but knew that I was in the wrong career field for me.
Deciding to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist was a big undertaking (SO MANY SCIENCE CLASSES) but I'm so grateful I did it.
There is so much information on the internet to sift through, and raising kids is hard enough!! I wanted to be a trusted resource for parents who just want to know how to navigate feeding their kids.
The feedback I hear the most from moms who follow me on Instagram or who I work with one on one is that they appreciate how much I keep it REAL.
So if you're looking for help that actually works in the real world, you're in the right place.
