I’m Kacie Barnes.
I’m a pediatric Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, mom of two, eternal realist, and most importantly, I’m mom to a previously extremely picky eater.
Teddy was my “garbage disposal” baby—he ate everything. I was feeling good. But everything changed when he turned 2. He started turning his nose up at all the foods he used to love. I felt so frustrated and disappointed watching the number of foods he liked go down and down.
So, I tried it all. Everything that I was already coaching parents through, I did with my own kid. I used every tool I had: my education, nutrition knowledge, and my experience working with clients. And, you know what? It worked! Better than I even expected it to.
Now that we’re (mostly) on the other side of picky eating, all I want to do is help other moms who are tired of feeling guilty about what their little one eats. I took what I know as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and paired it with what I learned from my experience as a picky eater mom to create my Simple Steps to Picky Wins system and end the mealtime battle of wills for good.
I can’t wait for you to see how different it feels when you have the tools you need to tackle picky eating.
