      Imagine a future where eating with your daughter is fun and easy again. You can sit down to a meal and focus just on the joy of being together, hearing about her day, and dreaming about tomorrow. You don’t feel the need to comment on or worry about what she’s eating, nor how little or how much. And you feel good about your own eating, too!

      Imagine doing less and knowing more when it comes to planning meals and parenting around food. When the topic of what’s for dinner comes up, you feel excited. You’re happy to be in the kitchen—and your daughter feels the same way, too.

      You’re confident because you know you’re doing all the best things when it helping your daughter have a positive, happy, and healthy relationship with her body and food. Your daughter is at ease around about eating, whether it’s at a party full of cakes, chips, and cookies or a restaurant that only serves vegetables and fish.

      When you head to the doctor’s office, the weight check is a non-issue for her! And when you eat with family, you and your daughter are so relaxed and happy that everyone wants to know the secret to what’s changed in you.

      *Eating with your daughter CAN be joyful and easy

      *You can trust your daughter—and yourself—around food again

      *You can raise a daughter who is at peace with food, eating, body, and her weight

      *You finally understand why eating vegetables isn’t the most important part of being a healthy eater

      There is help, you don’t have to solve this problem on your own.

      You can give yourself and your daughter everything you both need to feel good about your body, your eating, and yourselves!

      That’s exactly what The NourishHer Method is designed to support you with and help you do.

      Showing our daughters a different way…

      When our daughters start gaining weight, complaining about their weight, or telling us they’re unhappy with their body, the impulse can be to rush in with support and….. a plan for weight loss, a diet, or an offer to “get healthier together.” 

      It makes sense. Decade after decade and day after day, diet culture tells us weight loss is the answer. Here are the facts we don’t hear: trying to push your weight down is a risk factor for eating disorders, focusing on weight loss is linked with depression, lowered self-esteem, and poorer overall health, and that dieting does NOT lead to weight loss or better health over the long-term.

      • 3 out of 4 women have struggled with disordered eating

      • By the time they are in college, 91% of girls report having been on a diet

      • Dieting is a precursor to, and a risk factor for, eating disorders

      • The number of children under 12 hospitalized for an eating disorder has risen 119% in the last decade  

      The Nourisher Well Program helps you find that perfect, positive middle ground—helping your daughter find peace with food while also helping you make sure she’s as healthy as can be, body, mind, and soul.

      It’s a way to help her grow to become the incredible person she’s meant to be!

      With The NourishHer Method, you’ll learn…

       
      • How to separate your own eating fears and issues and make sure they don’t become hers

      • When you or your daughter’s weight or weight gain is a problem worth looking at—and when it’s perfectly normal

      • Exactly when it’s the right time to set a limit around food and when it’s better to let it go

      • The evidence-based tool you can use to help yourself and your child regulate appetite

      • The evidence-based tool you can use to help yourself and your daughter learn to like new foods

      • Real-life conversations you can have to help you get on the same page with your parenting partner

      Eating together can feel fun again!

      Plus, you get big results. Here are just some of the changes moms saw after finishing The NourishHer Method program…


      Random requests for food decreased by as much as 33 percent!

      Emotional eating decreased by as much as 33 percent!

      Pickiness plummeted by 50 percent (aka kids were twice as likely to accept a new food!)

      Moms reported that their kids were 20 percent better at regulating their food intake!

      What People Are Saying…

       

      “Everything I have learned makes so much sense and has actually made feeding my children easier instead of feeling like I had all these crazy “rules” to follow!”

      — A, mom to a girl and boy both under age 7

      “Amelia is easy to understand and is willing to answer any and all questions you have. I am less stressed when it comes to meals and especially snack time. And I can use what I learned with my son as well as my daughter!

      Learn more about Amelia Sherry, your NourishHer Well Program Facilitator:

      Hey there, I’m Amelia. Like you, I’m a mom and no stranger to worrying about weight.

      I grew up in the 80s and 90s, when low-fat diets, Jane Fonda workouts, and weekly Weight Watchers meetings were all the rage.

      Despite the fact that my mother was an exhausted, single, working parent, I watched her spend precious time whipping up low-calorie recipes, doing situps and jumping jacks late at night in front of the TV, and racing out after dinner to get to her weigh-ins and meetings.

      By the time I was in middle school, “watching what I ate” became a part of my life too. Just like so many young girls I work with today, losing weight seemed like it would fix everything. Plus, working out and sticking to the latest diet fad together felt like a way to bond with my busy mom.  

      Unfortunately, for me—like so many other girls—my drive to be thinner didn’t stop there. It followed me into high school and throughout college, it dug holes in my self-esteem and stole my attention from so many other things. If my mother had any idea I’d still be struggling with food into my 30s, I know she would’ve handled my weight issues in a different way. 

      Now I know that there IS from a better way. I learned how to protect myself AND own my daughters from the unnecessary burden of dieting and “healthy” eating by combining my professional background as a pediatric dietitian with my personal experience with disordered eating. And I’ve taught positive food parenting strategies to hundreds of other parents who are also looking for a better way for their own children.

      You CAN raise a daughter who is confident and peaceful around food AND enjoys being at her happiest, healthiest weight! Ask me for help. I absolutely want to support you and your daughter in getting to that positive, peaceful place with food that you want her to be in!

      xoxo Amelia

        Finally! The Cure for Mealtime Stress!

        Did you know that parents who have a relaxed yet structured approach to eating and feeding raise kids who eat a bigger variety of nutrients and are more protected from disordered eating? It’s proven in research—and I see it in my practice almost every day!

        Of course, for many of us being relaxed about food can feel tough to do—especially if we’re worried about health or weight or if we’ve had our food, eating, and weight struggles of our own.

        That’s where the NourishHer Well Program comes in. You’ll learn how to intervene with your kids’ eating in just the right way. You’ll raise an eater who makes balanced choices they feel good about. They’ll feel calm and in control around sweets and treats and enjoy the proteins and fruits and veggies they need to flourish.

        You’ll get all the tools and expert-level understanding of exactly why and how to start feeling more relaxed about meals and eating in this innovative and one-of-a-kind program! Plus you’ll also get the emotional support and understanding that makes it easy to do it!

          FAQs

          Do I have to attend live?

          Only if you want to! A new video lesson will be posted weekly, which you can watch or listen to at your leisure. Once weekly there will be a Zoom meeting to gather as a group, address your questions, and talk. It will be recorded so if you can\’t join live, you can submit questions and listen to answers in the replay. Zooms are tentatively scheduled for 12:00 pm EST. I\’m trying to accommodate both coasts and multiple schedules so once the group is finalized, I will consider alternating times of Zoom to include evenings if needed.

          Can my husband (or parenting partner) attend?

          Yes; anyone involved in your daughter’s feeding can watch the video lessons. (Access provided upon request. ) The open Q/A coaching and discussions are limited to program enrollees only, however; the purpose is privacy, continuity, and building mutual trust among the group so it continues to be a safe space for sharing questions and concerns.

          Will this program help me talk to family or spouse about diet culture?

          Absolutely! This program is designed to give you the confidence and clarity you need when it comes to defending your approach to feeding and eating for your daughter.

          Will this program help my daughter to lose weight?

          Weight loss is not the goal of this program. The positive feeding strategies taught in this program are meant to help stabilize your child’s BMI. If your child’s BMI percentile has changed significantly in recent months or over the past two years, gradually returning it to the previous stable place is the goal as this is the best way to support overall health and wellbeing.

          If you need more clarification on this, please ask. (It can be confusing, which is why a review of your daughter’s growth chart is included in the course.)

          Will this program help me with my own eating?

          Yes! The first 4 weeks of the program (Phase 1) are specifically designed to help understand your own history with food, as well as to help you feel good about your own eating.

          My daughter has pre-diabetes, PCOS, or type 2 diabetes—can this program help me with that?

          Indirectly, yes. The evidence-based strategies taught in the NourishHer Well Program are linked with improvements in these conditions. However, the program is not specifically designed to address them.

          Can I get my money back if I don’t like the program?

          I think you will love the program—it’s not like any other nutrition program on the market and is uniquely tailored for mothers who want to protect girls from dieting and dysfunctional eating. However, if you are not happy you can receive a full refund if requested with 14 days of the program start date.

          How do I know if the program is working?

          You should feel less stressed and more in control of eating and feeding within the first 3 to 4 weeks of the program. Meaningful change does take time, however. You will undergo a pre-and-post assessment that will help you see your eating and feeding skills grow. Aside from the assessments, there is no exact way to measure your improvements from week to week—though many parents feel relief as soon as they enter into counseling.

          Can you talk to my daughter’s pediatrician for me?

          I can provide only provide a general letter outlining the benefits and purpose of the NourishHer Well Program, as well as your reason for enrolling (which is to protect your daughter from disordered eating). I can only speak to your child’s pediatrician about her unique and personal health and weight concerns if you are receiving individual nutrition counseling from me via my private practice.

          Still Have Questions?

          Ask me. I’m here to help!
