What Parents Say about Feeding Your Baby

Enjoyed the session. Love suggestions for food and snacks and the interactive questions throughout.

What Parents Say About Feeding Your Baby

Great session. Lots of wonderful information. Overall very thorough! Thanks!

What Parents Say

Just wanted to thank you for the Solid Foods session held at Jill and the Beanstalk.  It was a great session, I learned so much! I left 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.

Why Choose Nishta?

I would personally like to thank Nishta Saxena for all of her assistance.  I was first referred to Nishta for help with a rare disorder in which dietary changes are the treatment.  Every time I met with her she listened and gave me practical suggestions.  She also supported and guided me in working with my GI and Family Physician.

Not only does she have a motivating and caring approach, but her knowledge of nutrition, wellness and disease prevention is vast.  With Nishta’s guidance and help I was successful in making changes to improve the quality of my life.  I would highly recommend.

What Parents Say

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 dietitian 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!

What Parents Say

Nishta was and continues to be a wonderful resource for me. My toddler has suffered from constipation since infancy, and Nish provided both practical and emotional support.

As a first time parent, I find her style and calming demeanour extremely reassuring and practically helpful. I strongly recommend her, especially to parents!


What Parents Say

“After attending the [name of seminar], 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. I recommend her seminar to all new parents.”

Why Choose Nishta?

Nish has been essential to both myself and my family members achieving our health goals!

Earlier this year I became pregnant. Already having Celiac disease, I knew I needed to refine my diet to ensure the best possible outcome for baby (and mom!).

Nish’s knowledge, expertise, and evidence based yet personalized approach got me immediately on track with a healthy and balanced diet. She has helped my husband with his weight loss goals and to improve symptoms of IBS.

Most recently, her consultation with my mother, a newly diagnosed diabetic, led to a 15 pound weight loss and excellent blood sugar readings in only a few months (HbA1c down from 12.6 to 7 in only 3 months!). We will continue to reach out to Nish for our all dietitian related needs.

What Schools Say

The workshop was fantastic. I cannot tell you how impressed I was with Nishta’s no-nonsense ability to connect with students in a way that was direct, engaging and entertaining. I believe a number of my students will be contacting her as a result to seek her guidance. Absolutely fantastic.
