Nutrition

Jenna Wood Nutrition (for children, adolescents, and adults)

As we find ourselves overwhelmed by a tidal wave of trending diets and conflicting nutrition advice, food has become an incredibly complex topic in our modern world.

I am here to help you navigate these waters with evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle recommendations. Every individual is entirely unique, and together we will build a plan that works for you.

Nutrition counseling is a collaborative process that provides you with the space and tools to address underlying health issues, improve your relationship with food, and deepen your understanding of how food impacts both the body and mind.
