Rosemary Fernandes-Walker is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist in Guelph, Ontario. When she blended families with her husband, changing the family’s nutritional habits helped manage one child’s ADHD and Learning Disabilities. Even though it’s been challenging convincing 5 kids and a husband that cutting out sugary cereals and potato chips was a good idea, everyone’s eating habits and dispositions have improved considerably. However, long before then, she’d had a passion for nutrition. Even while she was pregnant, she followed every rule and chart in great detail to ensure that she was providing her babies with the best possible start. Her website is: www.healthybynutrition.com
