Registered Dietitian and owner of Wee Nourish. Mom. Passionate about prenatal, postpartum and family nutrition, specializing in picky eating.
Caitlin Boudreau is a Registered Dietitian with Wee Nourish. She provides individualized nutrition counselling and group education sessions to parents and caregivers, emphasizing the importance of establishing a positive feeding relationship between caregiver and child, with the goal of raising happy, healthy eaters.
Caitlin completed her Master of Public Health degree from the University of Toronto and has had the opportunity to work in various areas of nutrition, including addictions and mental health. She also completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in Honours Psychology. Her psychology studies have been immensely helpful in enabling her to better understand children's eating attitudes and behaviours and the feeding relationship.
As a mother to two sweet and rambunctious little boys, Caitlin also has first-hand experience with the challenges (and adventures!) that come with feeding a child.
"How's the baby?" you're asked constantly. "How's she eating/sleeping?" It doesn't take long for you to notice the monumental shift in focus, from you -- the glowing, pregnant woman -- to the baby. That seat that people jumped to offer you on the bus? Taken. It's touching to feel such warmth and interest towards your newborn, don't get me wrong. But how about we save some of that for mom?
1. Stop trying to hide veggies and "healthy" stuff in other foods -- I can handle them straight up. Sure I may not devour those green leafies you put on my tray from day one, but unbeknownst to you, I'm slowly learning to like them.
