Dana Peters, MS, RD, LD

Dietitian

As a registered dietitian and mom, Dana Peters brings professional expertise and personal experience with childhood nutrition to Feed to Succeed. Dana’s approach to feeding kids involves not only providing nutrient dense foods, but also encourages parents to teach children about food in a fun way.

“Get in the kitchen and get messy! Exposing kids to food and fostering acceptance of healthy foods doesn’t just happen at the dinner table. It happens while putting the groceries away, during meal planning and while at the grocery store,” says Dana.

Dana enjoys trying new recipes, yoga and spending time with her family. She also enjoys exploring the local food scene by wandering around the farmers market.
