Barbara is very knowledgeable and understanding about diet and nutrition. I am unable to use my right hand and she knows the cooking tips for healthy eating for me to overcome these struggles.
Barbara gave me the most essential ingredient, a good plan with strategies to help reach my goals of accepting myself and not overindulge at celebrations and meetings with family and friends.
Thank you again for your collaboration in the work of child nutrition, improving diet quality both at home and at school.
