In this episode of Healthy Family Project, we talk to Sally Kuzemchak, our official registered dietitian and the voice behind RealMomNutrition.com, all about balancing the holiday sugar rush.
Sally shares general rules for incorporating healthier foods into your holiday celebrations, how to focus on the holiday activities rather than the food, and how to get back into the swing of things post-holiday.
Sally is a registered dietitian, author, and mom of two boys. She blogs at RealMomNutrition.com, a “no-judgement zone” for feeding families. She is the author of two books, The 101 Healthiest Foods For Kids, a guidebook to the best whole foods for kids, and Cooking Light Dinnertime Survival Guide, a cookbook for busy families.
An award-winning reporter and writer, Sally serves as a Contributing Editor for Parents magazine and a blogger for WebMD. Her writing has been published in magazines including Prevention, Health, Family Circle, Eating Well, Fitness, and Shape.
Sally received her master’s degree in dietetics from The Ohio State University and resides in Columbus, OH with her family.
