Hi, I’m Laura Hoover, and

Welcome to my Site

I'm passionate about helping families like yours find simple, doable strategies that will put happier, healthier mealtimes within reach.

As a mom, I know first-hand how challenging it can be to feed kids well and to have happy family mealtimes. But as a child nutrition expert, I also know there is a better way.

This site is designed to help parents feed their kids healthfully within the reality of everyday living. I share simple, flavorful recipes — plus loads of research-supported tips & tricks — that can help you address common eating challenges and empower your child to develop lifelong healthy eating habits.

My goal is for Smart Eating for Kids to be a place where parents can find helpful, positive, actionable advice that can have an immediate and lasting impact on their family’s lives.
