One of my biggest fears and concerns has always been choking. It’s still a fear I deal with, however, by learning about the gag reflex and with Priscila's support, I am able to give my daughter foods that I know are appropriate for her age and that are also full of the nutrients she is needs.

If we haven't met yet...


Hi! I'm Pri ("Pree").👋🏽I’m so glad you made it to this page. 

As a dietitian and a mom, I have a passion for helping other mamas feed their babies with joy and confidence from the very first bite. There are so many opinions and resources out there, sometimes confusing parents and making feeding more complicated than it should be.

When I first started looking for resources to help me start solids with my son, I realized how some of the recommendations about feeding babies can be intimidating to parents, and can hinder, rather than encourage, a our desire to feed our baby the best way possible. 

Every family is different, and you have the say so when it comes to how to feed your baby, mama. But I'm here to help you, support you, and share with you the knowledge you need to be confident in your feeding choices!

  • What is the Feeding as They Grow program?
    The Feeding as They Grow is a COMPREHENSIVE, EVIDENCE-BASED program that focuses on helping parents and their infants transition from milk (breast or formula) to solids and beyond. It is delivered in a NURTURING environment via INTERACTIVE COACHING and a WEALTH of online material with long-term ACCESS to a Registered Dietitian.
  • Why should I start now?
    There is no better time to start than NOW!! Spots fill up quickly and are limited. We don’t want you to miss out or have to wait until the next program cycle is offered. If you are considering allowing us to join you on your infant’s JOURNEY, jump in, and you will not be disappointed.
  • Can’t I just do this on my own?
    Why struggle with questions like “Is my baby ready to try solids?”, “Is this food healthy for my baby?”, or “Is this food going to hurt my baby?” This program is designed to put you in the driver’s seat when it comes to your baby’s nutrition. It will complement your parenting and walk you through the process of providing OPTIMAL nutrition for your growing baby. I’m convinced your good parental instincts will foster healthy nutrition for your baby regardless, but there’s no need to do it alone or waste precious time. The Feeding as They Grow program will give you the CONFIDENCE and support to make sure your baby gets off on the right start from the first bite!
  • Can’t I just consult a dietitian and get the same thing?
    You can certainly pay a nice consulting fee for limited access and information that will likely change as your infant continues to grow. Isolated consults are neither easy on the wallet nor your schedule and any parent of a young baby knows time is precious. Not knocking those that provide nutrition consulting services for their clients, but how much better to have ACCESS to a dietitian for a year at a fraction of the cost!
  • What this program is not offering?
    While acting under the credentials as a Registered Dietitian (R.D.), we do not provide Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) for individual clients. No formal medical recommendations, diagnoses, or specific diets will be prescribed to clients nor any physical encounters will take place. A provider-patient relationship will not be established. Any medical concerns pertaining to your baby should be discussed with your child’s medical provider. Individual nutrition consults outside the Feeding as They Grow program will not be provided.
  • What is special about the length of the program?
    Would you prefer a few random facts about an infant’s dynamic nutritional needs or instead, PRACTICAL and TRANSFERABLE knowledge and skills that you can use for your first or second baby and beyond? Think of this as a PROCESS that allows you and your baby to transition through their precious, early months in a SAFE and EVIDENCED-BASED way. This doesn’t happen after reading one blog post or one consult, but rather through a LOGICAL and EASY to understand learning format. Think of this program as one of the first and most important INVESTMENTS in the early life of your little one.
  • Aren’t there similar programs available that are cheaper?
    The old saying “You get what you pay for” certainly applies! Why try to save a buck when it comes to the health and well being of your baby? Again, our prices are more than GENEROUS and ultimately reflect a BARGAIN when considering the wealth of INFORMATION and SUPPORT our clients receive.
  • What if I already have children?
    Whether this is your first time navigating the challenges of infanthood or you’re a pro, the knowledge and skills you learn through this interactive program surely are APPLICABLE. Rest assured, if this is your first child, let us help you RELIEVE your stress surrounding starting solids. If you are on your second or third child and feel like your experience with your first child was suboptimal when it came to establishing solid nutrition habits, again, rest assured the Feeding as They Grow program will ensure you achieve CONFIDENCE this go around!
  • What if I can’t pay for the entire program at once?
    We offer FLEXIBLE payment options whether you prefer to pay all at once or throughout the course of the program. Take note of the DISCOUNT available for those who pay in full at time of purchase!
  • I’m concerned about food allergies. Is this program right for my baby?
    While the Feeding as They Grow program addresses general dietary principles and considerations pertaining to common food allergies, any concern regarding a confirmed food allergy or a strong family history of food allergies should be discussed with your child’s medical provider. No formal medical advice or management of a child’s allergy will be offered. Nevertheless, you and your infant will certainly still benefit from the nutrition education afforded to you through the Feeding as They Grow program.
  • I’m concerned about my baby choking. How does this program address this?
    General considerations and education will be given throughout the program regarding choking, but no medical recommendations will be given if you feel your baby is at higher risk of choking. Consulting with your medical provider early is of paramount importance. The risk of choking is unfortunately a reality for any child regardless of whether they partake in this program or not. Nonetheless, we feel an educated parent is better suited to reduce the risk of choking significantly by following appropriate baby cues and evidence-based recommendations. Please see our disclaimer and program materials for further information.
  • In what format is this program presented?
    The Feeding as They Grow program is delivered via a virtual platform that includes online videos, reading material/handouts, virtual group coaching sessions and a virtual COMMUNITY!
  • What kind of time commitment is required for the program?
    While your involvement in the program takes place throughout your infant’s early months, your time commitment is very MANAGEABLE and SELF-PACED. You drive the ship and ultimately utilize the material to your liking and need. We will be here to hold your hand along the way. There is no shame for “falling behind” or skipping throughout the educational content. However, we feel you will get the most out of the program by partaking in as many educational formats provided to you. Have FUN with it!
  • What is your refund policy?
    Given the nature of downloadable digital items, we do not offer refunds on purchases. If you are unhappy with your purchase, please let us know and we will do our best to make things right.
