About me

Hi, I’m Dr Kyla

I’m the proud creator and owner of Toddler Mealtimes. I’m a mama to baby Elsie (who you’ll see featured lots on this website!) and I’m from sunny Perth, Western Australia. I’m a lover of vegetables, a big fan of sharing food with those you love, and I get to talk about food all day long (it’s a perk of the job!)

I’m a paediatric dietitian and I’ve been specialising in fussy eating for over a decade. In 2018 I launched Baby Mealtimes to help parents cut through the overwhelm of feeding babies. This was honestly one of the most rewarding times of my career. I decided to start Toddler Mealtimes soon after because I realised that parents of older children were filled with as much self-doubt as those with new babies.

Toddlers are notoriously fussy eaters and this can be an incredibly stressful time for many parents. I know that the way we manage this tricky time has such an impact on how well they eat now and in the future. Having a plan, based on evidence and experience, will help you navigate this stage with confidence.

..
I believe that Australian parents need a reliable, practical and supportive service to help them feed their toddlers with confidence and without the stress. I want to help you enjoy this stage with your toddler (it can actually be fun!) and feel good about family mealtimes.

So let me tell you a bit more about

My mission is to pass on my knowledge, and teach you the skills of stress-free feeding so that you can have the confidence to teach your toddler to enjoy their food. 
 
I’ll show you what I do with my toddler, and what I do with the hundreds of families I work with, so you can see what to expect at different ages and stages of feeding. 
 
I also share my recommendations about the types of food to offer your toddler, how to meet their nutritional needs and what to do if things aren’t going to plan. 
 
You’ll get all of this in photos and videos so you can see how it works in real life! There are also recipes to help you find new and easy ways to offer different foods to your toddler.  

 

This will set your kids up for a future of eating that supports them to grow and thrive. I can’t wait for you to join me …
