"Rachael was a great help. Giving us professional advice on how to transition our child to solids. She was very knowledgeable and practical. We felt so much more confident about our baby's diet after her consultation and all her suggestions worked. Now our girl is 16 months, and we are pleased with the variety of foods she eats. It was a big relief to know our child has built a good foundation of eating habits at very early stage. We wouldn't have any hesitation to contact Rachael for help in the future."

- Elise, mother of Sara

"I'm so relieved to have found The Food Tree! There is a real information void out there when it comes to the practical nitty gritty of what and how to feed your kids in a way that fosters a healthy relationship with food, self, family and the planet. The Food Tree really fills this void and Rachael's approach is holistic, evidence informed, pragmatic and warm. As a mum of a fussy eater the How-to book for fussy eaters is gold and has saved our family much meal time stress!"

- Bronwin, mother of Adam and Samantha
