    "Amanda has been an amazing resource for my family and I. She's helped me to come up with strategies and ideas to encourage my daughter to try new foods and has taught me new ways to approach mealtime. It's so hard to find someone with experience in pediatric feeding and we are so thankful we found her. We would recommend Amanda for any family who is having issues surrounding mealtimes." - Jenn, Ambler, PA
