Hi! I'm Chelsea Thiede, MS. I am a Christian, wife, mom, step-mom, runner, foodie, food scientist, and nutritional therapy practitioner. I'm a true believer in "Food is medicine." and want to help others find ways to nourish their families through real food. I am a food-scientist, nutrition therapy practitioner, and training integrative nutritionist. My passion for children’s health comes from my most important job title, mom. I am the founder of the holistic ADHD program, Fed and Focused, and authored the E-book “A Recipe for a Healthy Baby.” I share kid-approved recipes on my blog and youtube channel that help provide nutrient dense food for optimal development. I empathize with parents struggling with kids suffering with ADHD and wants to help parents see their kids succeed. We all want more time for connecting instead of correcting our kids!

Movement increases the amount of oxygen to the brain, which improves mood, sleep, and focus just to name a few things!!! Since the summer, we have…

This past Friday I got KFC because I knew the kids and Brendon would love it, plus I am putting together an awesome Christmas gift that requires several restaurant containers, more on that…
