Practice Philosophy

Miriam loves working with children and their families to help them alleviate their food related problems and achieve optimum nutrition for growth and development. Miriam is a mother of two young boys and as such, has a good understanding of the difficulties in juggling work and all of the other responsibilities of life, including meal preparation! It is for this reason that Miriam is always careful to ensure that all recommendations are realistic and achievable for each individual family.
