Bring calm family meals back to your house.
Meet Kim Slack, RD
I’m a registered dietitian, and I coach parents along the journey of helping children add new foods to their limited diets while bringing joy back to eating!
I help parents gain confidence, so they can create happy meal times and support their child’s eating without pressure or stress.
- Are you feeling anxious that your child isn’t getting the nutrients they need to grow and thrive?
- Are you stressing, trying to make a meal for the whole family that everyone will eat?
- Does your child’s short list of accepted foods make you fearful for their future?
I get it. I’ve been there.
My child went from eating quite literally anything as a baby, to rejecting foods – one by one. Initially, I didn’t even notice it happening. Then, one day, I looked back and thought, ‘How did we end up here? What can I do to help us work our way back?’
So, I gave myself a little pep talk, reminded myself that what my child eats does not define my success as a mother, and dove headfirst into the world of picky eating.
Now I take everything I’ve studied as a registered dietitian, personally tried with my own son, and used to help other parents just like you, and personalize it to fit your needs. I provide actionable steps that fit into your busy life to overcome feeding barriers and make progress. I focus on the WHAT, HOW, and WHY of feeding kids to reduce your stress, so you can set your child up for healthy eating for a lifetime.
I know adding more to your to-do list feels impossible. As a mom of two crazy boys, I understand. But the one thing I consistently hear from parents is, I wish I had started sooner. When helping picky eaters make progress, the younger the better. Starting now gives your child the best chance at making progress, and you get to save yourself years of worry and stress.
Feeding your child is something you do multiple times a day, every day. Let’s make it a time that’s filled with joy!

I just can’t seem to stay away from food, so when I’m not working or doing “mom things,” you can find me in the garden or sewing felt foods. I also enjoy hiking with my family, sitting around our fire pit making s’mores, and binge watching dramas and science fiction (Star Wars nerd here!) after my kids are in bed.
