MS, RD, Counselling Dietitian, Mom of Two
I’m a mom of two adorable boys and just like many of you, deal with common issues such as picky eating and food throwing (who doesn’t?). I too, am attempting to raise healthy and independent eaters, which certainly is not without hurdles.
I’ve discovered the challenges of picky eating and the joys of a glass of wine, all at the same time. I believe that nutrition and eating should be fun. My goal is to help simplify the feeding process and present nutrition information in a real and easy way to understand.
I completed my Bachelor of Science in Nutrition at Acadia University and went on to earn a Master of Science in Applied Human Nutrition at Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Before focusing on pediatric and family nutrition, I practiced in the areas of chronic disease prevention and healthy weight loss. I’m a member of the College of Dietitians of Alberta and a certified Craving Change expert who uses motivational and problem-solving techniques to help clients reach their nutrition goals.
In my spare time (aka ‘in my dreams’) I enjoy reading and rock climbing, and spending time with my family.

Hi! My name is Fatima Hussain and I have been an Occupational Therapist for over 5 years. I am extremely passionate about all things OT and believe in empowering and supporting individuals to meet their goals and engage in those activities that are most meaningful to them! And I am now thrilled to be the in-house Pediatric Occupational Therapist for the Centre for Family Nutrition!
I am originally from Edmonton, Alberta (don’t hold this against me!) and moved to Calgary a few years ago with my husband. We now live in a beautiful town west of the city in Cochrane. I love being outdoors, going for hikes and staying active. I make up for all this by baking all the treats and spending time spoiling my nieces and nephews. I also love to do puzzles, read and travel as much as possible (here’s hoping we can do so safely very soon)!
I strongly advocate for creating positive and healthy relationships around mealtimes and support children and their families to feel empowered with their feeding therapy. I provide supports for concerns with textures and oral sensitivities as well as therapy for oral-motor challenges. I look forward to supporting you and your family on your feeding journey.
I completed both my undergraduate degree in Kinesiology and my Masters degree in Occupational Therapy at the University of Alberta. I have also taken further training with the Beckman Oral Motor Protocol, the Pediatric Feeding Institute and Talk Tools Oral Placement Therapy. My experience, passion, skill set has led me to specialize my practice to work with children of all abilities in their homes, schools and community settings. As an Occupational Therapist, I have found that concerns around feeding and swallowing have had a huge impact on all aspects of the lives of the children and families I work with. It affects family relationships, social skills, academics, sleep and gut health.
