Our Mission

Feed to Succeed, LLC , provides your child’s roadmap for growth, well-being and success. We believe that by applying good nutrition and sound eating habits, children will thrive in mind, body and spirit.


Kids are what we know, and kids are what we do. What is clear to all of us who specialize in pediatric nutrition is that it’s highly complicated to get an adult to make changes to their dit, but kids are a breeze. Why? Because all good parents want what is best for their children, and they know that healthy food is essential. Parents go the extra mile to make sure their children receives adequate care, and that includes good nutrition.

Most importantly, kids require special knowledge. Children are growing and developing and have different nutrient needs at different times in their life cycles. What works for an infant is different from that of a 4-year-old and a 10-year-old child. We have the knowledge and the experience to provide you with nutrition therapy that meets the needs of your child right now.

Registered dietitians are the only nutrition experts regulated by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and the only experts licensed in the state to provide professional nutrition advice.  

Why The Kiwi?

Our approach is fresh, nutritious and not cliché, just like our logo. So What’s in a Name? For this fruit and Feed To Succeed, quite a lot! From disease prevention to an abundance of vitamins and minerals, the kiwi fruit provides a wide array of nutrition benefits.

According to a study at Rutgers University, the kiwi is the most nutrient dense fruit, ounce for ounce. We think that’s a pretty good indicator of who we are as a company. Contact us today to learn about our rates and nutrition services.Save
