I dunno about you, but no one gave me the parenting manual I DESPERATELY need. This podcast is for all the parents who want real answers to questions like, “why the F won’t my three-year-old eat dinner,” and “can they survive on goldfish crackers alone?” I also bring on guests to learn from and connect with on all the things we go through as parents, so none of us has to feel alone. I’m Kacie Barnes, Registered Dietitian, mom of two, and creator of the popular kids nutrition Instagram account, @mamaknowsnutrition. You can always count on me to keep it real, non-judgmental, and to never take myself too seriously!

I found the best pediatric Registered Dietitians to join Mama Knows, and I want you to meet them! If you’re anything like me, you like to vet people before you work with them. Do they share similar values? Do they seem likable? Are they normal?? So I wanted you to meet our RDs if you’re curious about our virtual nutrition consults. Listen to this episode to meet Dana Wallace and Bianca Anderson to learn about them, their philosophies and why they love being part of the Mama Knows family!
