Here is our list of noteworthy Dietitians from Edmonton’s surrounding area and Northern Alberta that you should take a look at!
Megan Wallace, RD, Owner of Sprout Nutrition
As a highly intuitive Dietitian, Megan likes to lean into each one of her clients as an individual. Her goal is to take the stress out of eating and feeding and develop her client’s curiosity when it comes to why, how, and what they choose to eat. Through the process of curiosity, true behaviour change takes place.
Megan is a crazy busy mom of 3 kiddos under 5. She knows how hard feeding small people can be, all while trying to fit in good nutrition for ourselves. Megan is realistic when it comes to healthy eating and her goal is to almost always grant ‘permission’ when it comes to eating and feeding and never to chastise.
Help with your little ones being picky eaters can be found at Megan’s Facebook! Check out Megan’s beautiful Instagram if you need some inspiration for the next family meal.
Katie Brown, RD, Dietitian, and Mom Behind Diet-Free Mom, Owner of Diet-Free Mom
Katie helps moms escape diet culture and regain a healthy relationship with food through Intuitive Eating. So many moms tell her they first started doubting their bodies and food choices in childhood because all the adults around them were dieting. They’ve now been struggling with food and their body image for years, or decades. They want a different path now for themselves – for their own kids.
Katie helps chronically dieting moms lose the guilt and shame around eating and learn to eat for satisfaction and enjoyment. As a mom of 3 myself, Katie gets how eating and other forms of self-care can get pushed to the back. Katie has set up a group program that brings together moms in similar life stages and with similar struggles and goals to work on their relationship with food together, in a supportive environment.

Christie Peregrym, BSc, RD, Dietitian at The Nutrition Room Specializing in Pediatrics
Christie helps busy families to create an eating environment where parents feel confident in the foods they provide and where kids can feel comfortable eating what they need. She teaches parents options of what to do and say at meals and snacks.
She works directly with children coaching them through a playful process to experience new foods. Using responsive feeding techniques with children builds skills, decreases fear, and is fun all at the same time. Building a lifelong positive relationship with food starts in childhood.

Erin Nelson, BSc, RD, Owner, and Dietitian at Balance Nutrition Counselling
Erin works one on one with clients to aid them in making goals for healthy eating, chronic disease management, and making peace with food. She strongly believes her knowledge about food and nutrition is one piece she brings to the table, while her clients are the experts of their own bodies.
Her mission is to help provide her clients with the tools needed to listen to their own bodies about food and nutrition so that they can make space to truly show up as who they were meant to be in this world.
This mission is twofold:
1. Helping her clients to heal their relationship with food, giving food and nutrition only the time it requires.
2. If clients are able to heal their relationship with food, then kids will not be destined to go down the same path. They can live a life where diet culture is still there, but have a toolbox so they aren’t vulnerable to diet culture’s messaging of inadequacy.
