“Our daughter was a super a picky eater. Especially when we tried to get her to eat nutrient dense foods. Alicia (The Cardamom) was super impactful in helping us change that. She provided us with a blueprint for our toddler’s diet that completely changed the way we approached feeding her. Suddenly all the things on her plate were colorful and fun and she loved it. We highly recommend using Alicia’s services. It’s made the world of difference for our family!.”
