During a year that has been different from any other year before with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, normal has been redefined. Although I typically talk about pediatric nutritional advice in this podcast, sometimes I have to accept that I can’t do what is “normal.”
When my planned guest contracted a sudden illness, I thought I would have to cancel the show. My daughter inspired me to take a step back and give you more of a history of myself and the podcast and not be afraid to deviate from “normal” every once in a while.
Today, I am talking you through the “Jill Castle” story. I want you as my listeners to know more about how I got started as a nutritionist, how I became interested in pediatric nutrition specifically, and more about my career path for those interested in nutrition.
This episode isn’t just about my career journey, though. It is also about the challenges that come with feeding and supporting your own family, especially as a full-time parent. From feeding them fruit at every meal to role modeling for them, I talk about how I incorporated being a parent of four children with my background in nutrition.
If you have listened to my podcast for a while and wondered about how I got started as a nutritionist, what qualifies me as a pediatric dietitian, or how I supported my own children’s diet growing up, this episode will shed light on it all.
