Welcome to Eat with B. I'm Breta Alstrom, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.
In my last year of grad school at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, I took a traineeship for the LEND program. Through this process, I learned about the shift in family dynamics when a child is diagnosed with a disability or other complex health need. Seeing the strain put on families and the increased neglect that parents face, inspired me to start Eat With B the RD and the Nourished Together Program.
I am a pediatric trained dietitian, completing an 7 month rotation at Children's Mercy Hospital and an 8 month long stay with the pediatric cystic fibrosis team at the University of Kansas Hospital. My experience has showed me how difficult it is for parents to learn how to feed their children in the first place, no one hands you a manual a childbirth. Adding on complex health needs, many parents can feel stuck and overwhelmed with provider recommendations.
Using an Integrative a Functional Medicine approach, I work with you to identify the root cause of both you and your child's health complications, while creating an environment where your physical and mental health can thrive.
To me, working with families as a unit just makes sense, we don't exist in isolation.
