Hi, I’m Ashley, the wife, mom of two, and pediatric dietitian behind Veggies & Virtue.
Veggies and Virtue provides moms with age-appropriate food ideas, meal time organization, evidenced-based insight on pediatric feeding questions/concerns, and fun ways to get your kids to enjoy healthy foods.
I started Veggies & Virtue to help other moms deal with the overwhelming aspect of what to feed their families and how to make it a sustainable process day after day -- especially for those of us with picky eaters.
Before staying home with our two daughters, I worked with kids and families as a registered dietitian nutritionist. I always knew I wanted to work in pediatric nutrition, so my early work experiences at a prestigious children's hospital was a solid start to my career. I was able to take an active role professionally empowering families to create healthier eating habits.
Nothing could quite prepare me for feeding my own kids, however!
With a very apprehensive eater in my oldest (born January 2014) and an immediately autonomous eater in my youngest (born January 2016), I can empathize with many of the meal time dilemmas us moms face on a day to day basis. From the struggles of breastfeeding to the mess of starting solids to the whoas of feeding a temperamental toddler, there are so many aspects to "feeding" that I didn't quite understand professionally until I walked through it personally.
Now, I combine my professional expertise and personal experiences to help you achieve less meal time stress and more feeding success.
Offering evidenced-based approaches and straight-forward advice, Veggies & Virtue gives you my transparent take and yet evidenced-based input on feeding our families. Please take a look around and don't hesitate to contact me with any additional inquiries.
I am glad you are here!
