A Dietitian, Nutritionist, wife and mother of 3 young children, Tanya has always had a passion for nutritional empowerment and preventative health.
After years of working with adults as a Dietitian, she decided she wanted to focus on educating humans when they were much younger; with no doubt that much of who we are as adults is from our early years of life.
Discovering the power of real books; the quality time reading them before bed, the enjoyment for both reader and audience (or not sometimes, depending on the book!), the impact of the content on growing minds; she developed the “Feeding Growing Humans Beautiful Yummy Food” series. Books a parent, a carer or educator WANT to read and books that all ages from 1-16yrs can get something out of.
Tanya lives with her family in the inner west of Sydney, after growing up in Gippsland Victoria, studying in Melbourne and living/working in Queensland. She loves looking at property, renovating (well, her husband does all the work, but she is part of the team), spending time with her amazing children and planning out how to have as much time with them as possible, while having a positive impact on the world!
She doesn't love cooking (as it usually means things need to be cleaned up) or meal planning (an intuitive eater) but will not compromise on balanced nutrition. She is also very mindful of the environment and the impact each of us has in the choices we make as consumers. A wholefood, plant based believer; her recipes are healthy, easy, quick, one pot where possible, vegetarian most of the time and involve minimal packages and locally sourced seasonal ingredients.
She is a huge believer in many things, but here are a few:
