We are a team of dietitians specialising in pregnancy and infant nutrition based in London, Ontario.
We also serve the Toronto & GTA area, as well as the rest of Ontario.
We use a non-diet, health at every size approach to help those who are trying to conceive, pregnant or postpartum, make informed nutrition choices that are best for them and their baby.
Through our one-on-one prenatal nutrition coaching we provide science-based, individualized recommendations to make the journey through pregnancy and postpartum less stressful and more enjoyable.
Our group programs provide nutrition guidance throughout pregnancy, postpartum and parenthood. They were also created to foster community with others who are going through the same stages of life. Our students learn together and lean on each other to minimize their confusion and overwhelm, and build confidence in themselves.
Our hope is to build a community of mamas and mamas-to-be, who feel both supported and safe throughout their motherhood journey.

About our founder
Aimee Tyler-Smith, RD, BEd
Hey Mama! I’m Aimee.
I’m a Registered Dietitian in London, Ontario and my passion is prenatal and infant nutrition.
As a mama of two myself, I know first-hand how it feels to want to do everything right, while simultaneously being afraid that I’d do everything wrong. I struggled to find the support I needed throughout my pregnancies, and I want to make sure that other moms don’t struggle the same way I did.
I’m here to help other mamas feel confident in their food choices and at peace with their relationship to food so that they can thrive throughout pregnancy and foster great eating habits in their babies.
