Hey there! I’m Sarah. Mom of three little ones, wife, daughter, sister, friend, Registered Dietitian and business owner. My life is full and wonderful, even though I feel like my head is spinning most days as I try to balance it all. Thank goodness for coffee, chocolate and a good glass of red wine. Anyone else?!
I love food, I’m fascinated by nutrition, and I’m passionate about teaching parents how to raise kids who eat well and have a healthy relationship with food. But I also know first-hand how challenging feeding kids can be. I experience all of the frustrating mealtime struggles that most parents do. In other words, I get you.
As a Pediatric Dietitian with over 10 years of experience, I have the knowledge and expertise to help parents finally breathe a sigh of relief and feed their families with confidence.
I’m pleased to offer one-on-one nutrition counselling to families in Calgary and beyond. Both myself and my associate Lesley Langille, RD offer in-person (OR Skype/Facetime) consultations for pregnant women (or those who are in the planning stages), babies, toddlers, children and Moms or Dads looking to improve their health. Our four value-packed nutrition counselling packages offer a variety of levels of support and guidance, depending on the your needs.
With over 10 years of experience counselling families one-on-one on nutrition and health, Sarah knows what health-conscious consumers are looking for when it comes to food and products relating to food–especially parents. And with her loyal following of thousands of parents on social media and through her blog, she has the power to influence in a positive way. Having a Registered Dietitian stand behind your brand gives it the edge in the industry that it needs to appeal to today’s health conscious consumer, and Sarah will help to increase your company’s credibility and will help your product stand out against the competition. Sarah only works with companies and brands that align with her values (products that she would feed her own three kids!).
I am a 34-year-old mom of 2 small children, so eating healthy and balanced meals is really important to me as I want to be a good model for my children. With my biggest concern being how to manage and minimize regular sugar cravings, I was fortunate to meet Sarah, who analyzed my eating patterns and pinpointed some problems that I was able to fix right away. In addition, she made me understand how my misconceptions might be getting in the way of healthy eating. I am now very happy to say that my sugar cravings have sinced decreased a great deal and I can better control them when they do come along! Thank you so much Sarah!
I am so glad that I found Sarah Remmer! As someone who has always been into health and fitness it was a relief to find someone so informative. Sarah helped me sort out the mess in my mind from the multiple sources I’ve read and talked to over the past few years. She took the time to break down the science of nutrition and explain how foods work with your body rather than just telling you to go on a calorie and carb restricted diet like so many places do. I am so excited to have the freedom to choose from so many great foods and my body feels great. Sarah takes the time to really get to know you making fabulous suggestions and tips so that this nutrition can become a part of your lifestyle. Food is exciting again, the recipes are yummy and I know that if I ever get stuck she’ll be the first person I call. Thanks, Sarah!
Sarah is extremely personable and makes clients feel comfortable and relaxed. Her ability to blend knowledge with compassion is what makes her such an expert in her field.
I would highly recommend Sarah for nutritional guidance to expecting and new moms. Exceptional nutrition is a key component to a successful pregnancy and raising a healthy baby. Sarah can provide professional and practical advice, as a Registered Dietitian and mom, to help guide you through any nutritional challenges you may face during these exciting life events.
The Children’s Cottage Society had the great pleasure working with Sarah in 2015. She developed a resource binder full of nutritional information that allows staff to provide accurate nutritional information to families. She also spent time with or food service staff and developed a six week menu plan for our Crisis Nursery and Brenda’s House. During our involvement with Sarah, she provided insightful information on healthy eating and how to encourage children to make healthy choices. Sarah created several workshops for us to continue on using with our families at Brenda’s House, on picky eating and grocery shopping on a budget. Families found the presentations that Sarah provided helpful and enlightening. It was an amazing experience working with Sarah! Her knowledge around nutrition is invaluable!
In the early stages of my pregnancy, I suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum and couldn't keep a lot down. Sarah was very understanding and helpful in suggesting foods and providing recipes that maximized nutritional intake. Her overall philosophy on balance and variety encouraged me to expand my regular diet and food selection. She even helped me choose a pre-natal vitamin that I could tolerate.
I am ‘momma’ to Bodie (2 years) and Owen (9 months). I first met with Sarah when I was newly pregnant with my youngest son Owen. My boys are only 17 months apart and so, I was struggling to maintain and gain an appropriate amount of weight while caring for a toddler and returning to work (thank you to 5 months of persistent morning sickness). While Sarah could not cure my nausea, she certainly helped give me some very practical and useful tips for eating nutritionally dense healthy meals and snacks. She also provided me with guidance for introducing solids to Bodie (9 months at the time). I most recently saw Sarah about my son Owen who refused to be spoon-fed, much to my dismay. She gave me some wonderful tips and meal suggestions for my independent 7 month old and my newly picky 2 year old. Sarah is knowledgeable and provides practical suggestions and solutions. I would (and have) recommend her to my family and friends. As a side note, I am a personal friend of Lesley’s and can vouch for her friendly, approachable and helpful advice with infant feeding as well!
The Children’s Cottage Crisis nursey has benefited greatly from Sarah Remmer’s six week rotation menu. It gives me peace of mind knowing that such healthy whole meals are already planned ahead of time for me to make. The menus have been full of new ideas for me to try. I must say that the hummus and pasta salad stand out as crowd favorites. The children also really enjoy the variety they now have at breakfast time. It is not uncommon for the children to ask me what is on the menu for their next meal and when they find out what it is they have been known to ask to stay a little longer (if their parents are coming) so they could enjoy their meal. Thank you Sarah Remmer for providing us with an incredibly helpful menu plan.
At lunch time we had a 6 year old girl sit down at the dinner table and let out a huge sigh proclaiming “This is an extraordinary lunch!” It was so cute hearing a little girl say such a big word. That same day at supper time an eight year old boy said “You are the best cooks in the world! You should be in newspapers!!!!”. Thank you Sarah Remmer for putting such thought and care into our menu plan. As you can see the children (who often come from food insecurity backgrounds) really appreciate your meal plan. -Stacy
