“Our daughter was an extremely picky eater, and as her parents we were worried that she was not getting the nutrition that her growing body needed. Kristen made her feel so comfortable at the table that she would try things that she would have never tried with us! She began to have a better appetite and to be more open to eating new foods.

The relationship that our family has established with her is invaluable to us!”
