Today we have a huge announcement to make – we are so excited to welcome Alex Turnbull as Jetson’s official Family Nutritionist!
Alex is a mother of both an infant and a toddler – her entire career has been focused on combining her love of food and nutrition for families. Helping others learn how to grow a healthy relationship with food has been her mission over the past several years. She’s worked in weight management, long term care, clinical and foodservice settings. Among all of these, her greatest passion is educating children and families on building healthy, sustainable eating habits.
Pre-motherhood, she obtained her bachelor of science in dietetics from St. Catherine University, where she then went on to obtain her credentials as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. In addition to partnering with Jetson, she also runs her own blog @TheFamilyNutritionist and works in school foodservice. She is an expert in infant and child nutrition and is passionate about helping parents find ways to feed their families with more confidence and less stress. Personally, Alex loves to eat to live and believes that all foods can fit within a healthy lifestyle. She encourages families to find simple and realistic ways to work towards a healthier and happier life.
While Alex Turnbull’s credentials are obviously impressive, what we’re most excited about is her ability to connect with all parents on her message of simple, easy health. Alex believes (as do we) that the best way to parent is how YOU parent and that every family is different. Balance is key when it comes to building a healthy relationship with food, especially for your little ones. Part of that relationship is understanding the connection between the gut and the food we all eat. That’s why we’re so excited to have Alex join our team and take the lead on educating the Jetson team and our customers about the importance of gut health during every stage of life.
Stay tuned to hear more from Alex Turnbull our new Family Nutritionist as she shares her wealth of knowledge as a guest contributor on our blog.
