Hi, I’m Ashley, the wife, mom of three, and pediatric registered dietitian behind Veggies & Virtue.
Veggies and Virtue provides parents 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 parents 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 apprehensive eaters.
Before staying home, I worked with kids and families at a local children's hospital as a registered dietitian nutritionist. I always knew I wanted to work in pediatric nutrition, so my early work experiences in the public sector 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!
From issues with tongue ties and breastfeeding early on to the woes of feeding apprehensive eaters in my older two, I can empathize with many of the meal time dilemmas us moms face on a day to day basis.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 and yet trustworthy expertise 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!
