Katie Serbinski, a registered dietitian who has been contributing to the Produce for Kids blog since 2015, is now the official registered dietitian for the organization.
“Katie is a mom of three young children and has not only insight as a registered dietitian, but also real life experience implementing fruit and veggie-packed recipes in her own home,” says Trish James, vice president at Produce for Kids, in a news release. “It is extremely important to us that every recipe on ProduceforKids.com has the stamp of approval from a registered dietitian.”
Produce for Kids has been ramping up its outreach for dietitians, including the We Heart RDs toolkit, and a display contest run during March.
James says hiring Serbinski is part of that outreach and focus.
“In addition, as we develop our retail dietitian outreach, it’s imperative that we have a registered dietitian as part of the team,” she says.
Serbinski’s blog, “Mom to Mom Nutrition” offers “simple, family-friendly recipes, tips for new moms and realistic nutrition advice.” Her goal, she says, is “to show you that raising a healthy family is achievable, even when you have a toddler throwing food across your kitchen table and a baby wanting to nurse around the clock.”
