Kristen had great ideas for presenting familiar and new foods to increase interest in the foods. Kristen has modeled great skill sand ideas for working with my son. Kristen’s presence truly helped me to decrease my anxiety over my son’s feeding issues. My son was always so thrilled to see her.
Kristen is truly great at what she does. She helped with so many aspects of my son’s “sensitivities” from feeding issues to trying on new shoes! She needs no improvement! Kristen provided support to our family in many ways.
When Kristen started working with our son, he was in the 0% for weight. At his 3rd birthday he is slightly about 50%. I am delighted that my child has been able to reach the 50% for weight and be open to new foods so that he is more typical in his eating AND hope that in the near future he will be able to truly eat like a typical 3 year old without so much coaching!
