Meet Veronica Muniz
Veronica is a Registered and Licensed Dietitian with over 15 years of experience helping families overcome barriers holding them back from living a healthy and enjoyable life. She is also an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant that is passionate about working directly working with families to address various childhood feeding and growth concerns. After breastfeeding her own children and seeing how important support was in early parenthood, she decided to pursue her lactation certification to better support families in navigating such a unique feeding journey.
Veronica began her journey in nutrition at Sam Houston State University where she completed a Combined M.S. in Dietetics and Dietetic Internship Program. Since then, she has gained extensive experience working one-on-one with individuals and families during her years at Head Start, Early Childhood Intervention and in the corporate wellness world.
As a busy mom of three, Veronica understands the frustrations that often come with feeding a household. Not only is the media full of conflicting information, but all households are very different with kids of various temperaments and preferences. The “one-size-fits-all” approach doesn’t work for most families.
She has experienced first hand some typical struggles that come with feeding kiddos such as selective eating, growth and feeding concerns, food allergies, constipation, breastfeeding challenges and the ever changing food preferences of toddlers.
“I grew up as a ‘picky eater’ kid and dreaded mealtimes. As I began to study nutrition and learned about WHY we eat and the many benefits food provides, I began exploring new foods. Having a healthy relationship with food is so important and that starts at birth. After having my first child I realized feeding a kid wasn’t as easy as it looked. I’ve learned so much throughout my career, but what I continue to learn everyday as a mother is invaluable! I want to share it with others, so I made it my mission to help as many families as possible gain confidence in feeding their child, so they too can raise a happy and healthy family.” – Veronica Muniz, Dietitian
She views nutrition as a whole family approach and believes it is important to raise children in an environment that views food as fun, nourishing and positive. Early on in her career she knew she loved working with children and their caretakers and found it so rewarding to connect directly with families.
In her free time, you can find Veronica outdoors running, hiking, gardening with her kids or relaxing with a book in hand.
