National Nutrition Month Day 8: Dinnertime Survival Guide

National Nutrition Month Day 8: Dinnertime Survival Guide

DInnertime_cover Resized


For day 8 of National Nutrition Month, I just had to highlight this must-have cookbook by registered dietitian Sally Kuzemchak (AKA Real Mom Nutrition). This popular mealtime heroine was listed among the 10 Dietitian You Need to Follow On Social Media in my latest U.S. News Eat + Run post for good reason. Sally shows moms that it’s okay to be frustrated during mealtime, but she also gives practical tips on how to get through it sanely. Gena, I know you have a few years to get to mealtime, but my brother has a few of these issues you may be able to tackle now! Hope you enjoy Sally’s fabulous cookbook and her recipe for fish tacos.
