Expecting families to families of 12 month olds
$35 per family (free play for any children under 1 and one child over 1 year old)
As a registered dietitian, I will lead families through a baby led weaning approach to introducing solids. My goal is to reduce the stress that comes with feeding your baby. I will provide you with up to date research on choking, iron intake, and reflex development. Meal ideas, a recipe book, a handout, and one month of email support will also be provided to participants!
Class led by: Candace Winterbauer RD LD
Since starting my dietetics career in 2013, the most rewarding part has been watching clients succeed with their health goals. As a dietitian for the Washington University Heart Care Institute, I helped patients manage their weight, diabetes, hypertension, andcardiovascular disease through diet using up to date medical nutrition therapy.
In 2017, my daughter was discovered to have elevated lead levels which caused me to dive into current dietary research on lead exposure and abatement in order to help her body heal. This ultimately led me to my current focus of Baby Led Weaning. In early 2018, I started my own company to help support families with nutrition education, provide 1:1 nutrition counseling, and to teach Baby Led Weaning both individually and through workshops.
My background is originally in chemistry where I worked in the food and beverage industry for 5 years. A career move led me to Saint Louis University where I decided to follow my passion of food, education, and community. I received my masters in Nutritionand Physical Performance and became a Registered Dietitian. I am now a mother of three loving the ups, downs, laughs, and tears while connecting with my community through food.
