Happy Tummies, Happy Kids: A discussion of gut health and feeding development

For children to learn to enjoy eating, they must feel good inside. Helping children to have good gut health can enable them to want to come to the table and explore new foods.  In this talk, you will learn about symptoms of poor gut health, methods to help heal the gut, and when to call in the experts.  Practical ways to help with reflux, constipation, leaky gut, and immunity will be discussed.  Come and learn how happy tummies make happy kids!

Amy Manojlovski is a Registered Dietitian, Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist.  She obtained her Bachelor of Science in Health and Sports Studies from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.  She completed her dietetic internship at Christ Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio before moving to Chicago.  Amy began her dietetic career working for Advocate Health Systems.  During her 7 years with Advocate Health Systems, she worked at various hospitals and was able to provide care from the NICU infant to the geriatric patient.  Her last three years working with Advocate focused on pediatric care.  Amy left working in the hospital to stay at home with her daughter.  During this break, she formed her company, MyNutritionGoals.com LLC, and became credentialed to work in the Illinois Early Intervention program.  She saw her first client through EI when her second daughter was only two weeks old.  Her love of working with pediatrics and the Early Intervention population has allowed her to gain wonderful knowledge and experience.  Amy’s areas of concentration include picky eating, food aversions, food allergies, tube feeding weans, and poor intake in breast fed infants/toddlers.  As she celebrates nine years of working in Early Intervention, she cannot think of a better job to have.
