Nishta is an incredibly reliable source for nutrition. I’m a mom of two young children, and Nish helped me figure out our struggle was about control, not the food itself. Now, two years later, mealtime is something to look forward to again! In a world full of complicated ideas about health, Nishta breaks nutrition down in an understandable, approachable way, and keeps it relevant.
As a first-time mom of a 4-month old, Nishta’s introduction to solids session was a great, fun way to learn about feeding my baby. Nishta is clearly very well informed about this topic, as both a dietician and a mom, and she provided lots of helpful evidence and experience-based tips throughout the session in addition to covering the basics. Thanks again!
Just wanted to thank you for the Solid Foods course. It was a great, I learned so much! I finished feeling very informed and confident. I had been nervous about this next step with my little one, but now I’m sure he’s going to get everything he needs.
Informed by over 10 years of clinical experience as a registered dietitian and being a mother of two, the instruction is practical and well-rounded. I loved the baby-friendly environment and ample opportunity to ask questions. At the end of the course, I left armed with useful tips, thorough nutrition and feeding information and much more confidence. I highly recommend this course to other parents, new or seasoned!
After taking Nishta’s course our baby boy is doing much better than before! He finally has 4 teeth and is eating better. Still gets a little agitated when he can’t fully use utensils, but we are miles upon miles better than we were before. Thanks again for everything!! We couldn’t have gotten here without you Nishta!
Great course! Lots of wonderful information. Overall very thorough! Took away all my concerns and problems around allergies and whether my baby was getting enough food and the right types of food. Really recommend!
After attending taking this course, I feel much more confident in starting solids with my baby. Nish is both knowledgeable and approachable, and she took the time to answer all of my questions on the facebook group. I recommend her course to all new parents.
Taking Nishta’s course was a total game-changer when it came to feeding my family; my baby had allergies, and my twins were picky, I was going crazy until I found Nish. Now we ALL eat the same meals. Its BLISS.
I wish I had her on speed-dial

A dietitian is a registered health professional. Nish is a dietitian. She is required to stay on top of emerging research, skills and knowledge. Dietitians are accountable to regulatory bodies. The advice a dietitian gives is based on medical research. A dietitian is not just giving you their opinion, they are helping you based on what research has proven. Only people who are fully trained and regulated can call themselves a dietitian.
Many families don’t see eye-to-eye about the right way to feed children. There are many myths, many traditions and many competing ideas. This course will settle any family disputes by giving you the most up-to-date, rigorously researched and medically correct information, presented by a registered professional.
An individual one-to-one assessment with a dietitian normally costs upwards of $360 dollars. They may not answer all of your questions and what you get out of it will depend on what you can remember. It’s difficult to take detailed notes while juggling a boisterous hungry baby. This course has everything you need, will answer all of your questions and is accessible, anytime, anywhere.
