Hi! I’m Dani.

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, food explorer guide, and mom to three food explorers in training.

As the founder and creator behind Kid Food Explorers, my mission is simple – help families on their journey to growing adventurous eaters and confident kids.

At Kid Food Explorers, we believe positive food experiences are the foundation for building a healthy relationship with food.  Using hands-on learning and sensory play, kids attitudes transform into a growth mindset. We invite them to use wonder and explore fun-filled, memorable, food experiences to last a lifetime.  

I’ve seen it with my own kids – connecting them to where their food comes from and fostering their natural curiosity encourages them to step outside their comfort zones and discover new tastes on their own terms. No battles, tantrums, or guilt.

Using hands-on STEAM activities, interactive children’s books, and family-friendly resources, we infuse fun and imagination into everyday food exposure to turn them into unforgettable food adventures.

We invite you to join us in our exploration journey!
