“ I wish I took this class when my son was just born…. My concern over T’s appetite resulted in me pressuring him to eat. Now we are more relaxed at mealtimes. And I think T. feels it and eats as much as he needs. In this class I received the best feeding advice so far. ”
- Michele, New York
“ Before I met Natalia, I had no idea pediatric dietitians existed. What a relief to finally understand the reason behind my DD’s behavior and have strategies that work. Natalia is very professional, knowledgeable and approachable. ”

Meet Adina Pearson, Registered Dietitian
Instructor at Feeding Bytes
After studying Nutrition at Loma Linda University and getting her degree, Adina began her career as the Chief Clinical Dietitian in a small hospital in Eastern Washington. For several years she focused on the needs of adults and had little interest in pediatric cases.
That is until she had kids of her own. As a mom of a 2.5 and 4 year old, she now understands the unique challenges parents and children face when it comes to developing healthy eating habits.
She's incredibly grateful for learning the child feeding strategies that she and Natalia will be teaching in this course because she knows first hand what a difference they make.
Currently she is working part-time in an outpatient clinic and she gets most excited when she sees a pediatric patient on the schedule. Her passion for child feeding led her to launch a Facebook page the summer of 2013 to support parents in feeding their children and more recently a blog www.HealthyLittleEaters.com with the same goal.
