Food can get easy for you and your family too!

You only want the best for your kids, so they grow up happy and healthy. If only you could buy a magic stick and instantly make this happen. Boom! Just like that! More balance, less picky eating, less overeating, less crying for candy, less mealtime discussions, free from panic when asked ‘What’s for dinner tonight?’, and … more peace.

What if I told you that family food can get easy and truly nourishing for you too? I may not be a magician, but we can get there together, step by step, day by day. Let me guide you with Family Food Flow, my new monthly membership for multicultural families living in Brussels and abroad.

Do you also feel like this?

  • You want your child to eat healthy, but it looks like you get zero cooperation from your family members (hello picky eating, different diets and all of this on your shoulders!).
  • You allow candy, chips, and ice cream, but every time it seems your child only wants them more. If only you knew how to convince your child to stop eating (or asking for) ultra-processed foods. You may feel guilt when you give in, but they have to eat something, right?
  • You want to protect your children from the wrong kinds of food, but you feel lost in the supermarket. You only want to serve your kids the best foods. But … what is the best?
  • You prepare meals – even with little time, inspiration or energy – but nobody seems to enjoy them. Sometimes, you resort to bribery because you are desperate to get your kids to eat more vegetables.
  • You want to raise multicultural foodies and wonder how you can encourage your kids to eat new things. 
  • You (or your partner) might experience cravings and find yourselves relying more on fastfood, takeout and restaurants than you’d prefer (especially when the kids are in bed).
  • You like to do things right and usually get it right, but you feel frustrated, angry, and even hopeless in the food department. Nutritional guidelines are too detailed and too vague at once, leading to confusion and conflicting communication and making you doubt if you’re doing enough to feed your family. How can you know your child gets the amounts of food he or she needs?

You're exactly where I was two years ago!

I had no mental space and certainly no energy to plan and cook meals.

My 2-year-old became incredibly picky. Bye bye serving broccoli and bananas without protest. Pasta was now his preferred food, while vegetables became his enemy. To top it off, the world around us seemed to be constantly offering sweets and treats.

I felt frustrated, angry, tired and scared. How could I ensure that my son was eating balanced meals and getting everything he needed from his food? It felt like food had turned into a fight, and everything and everyone was working against me.

Today, I feel peaceful around food, which makes a world of difference in my own eating habits and mental health. Of course, life is far from flawless (when is it ever?), and I’m still learning every day. I want to take you along my journey. As both a registered dietitian and a mom of 2 boys, my mission is to support you and your family making life easy and healthy, also nutrition-wise.

This is also possible for you!

  • You can enjoy life again without losing your sanity, breaking the bank, or spending excessive time in the kitchen, freeing up time, money and energy for yourself and your family
  • You feel confident in your understanding of what foods and nutrients kids really need, lowering stress levels and mental load.
  • You know how to deal with picky eaters (no bribery needed!) and their requests, resulting in less frustration during family mealtimes.
  • You can prepare easy, yummy family meals everyone can eat, without being disappointed or feeling flavor-deprived.
  • You stop worrying about food when your kids go to a party (or to their grand-parents), leading to less conflicts, more social activities and more peace of mind.
  • You feel good about yourself and the foods you prepare for your family (ditching mom guilt!).

Welcome to Family Food Flow!

My new membership is all about family food and how to feed yourself and your kids with peace and ease.

You’ll get to learn all that’s needed to nourish healthy, multicultural eaters. I empower you with practical parental strategies to tackle common challenges like picky eating, special dietary requests, and processed foods. This way, you’ll know exactly what to do in each situation, with confidence! Plus, for younger eaters, we also explore baby’s first bites.

We also explore your struggles practically and explore your mindset, because balanced nutrition starts with you. Get ready to unlearn many things, uncovering what truly counts for nourishing yourself and your family.

Thanks to your Family Food Flow membership, month by month, you will:

  • Learn that your food situation is NOT your fault.
  • Know how to compose varied and balanced family meals (also if you eat vegan, if there are food allergies in your family or if your kids are very picky).
  • Feel less stress, fear, and anger around mealtimes, family gatherings or kid’s parties.
  • Understand picky eating and what do to when your child seems to find everything you prepare ‘yucky’.
  • Get how to nurture your child’s natural ability to regulate food intake.
  • Never resort to bribery or food rewards again for your kids.
  • Tell the difference between nutrition facts and myths.
  • Read food labels and make wise supermarket choices.

Why me?

My matrescence – a difficult word for the birth of a mother – has made me a dietitian with an intergenerational vision. During my pregnancy and lactation period I became the main nutrition source for my baby. I also laid the foundation of his eating pattern through my own behavior at the table and which foods I offer my son. In the beginning of his food adventure, our eating pattern included a high dose of dietary restrictions, justified with healthy arguments.

My son had to become the healthiest version of myself and only the most nourishing nutrition was good enough. I secretly ate chocolate and I felt guilty about my food choices during pregnancy. Until I understood that not only what we eat, but also how we talk about food, what we say about our new body and how we react to some products (hello, chips, and co!) has an impact on our children’s eating patterns and body confidence.

Now, 2 years later, I know how to truly raise healthy eaters. I can feed my family (and myself) with less effort, less stress, less confusion and less discussions. I know what to say when my 4-years-old asks for processed foods, I can prepare fast, nutritious meals and eating is easier, fun even, plus adapt this to the needs of my baby (who is just getting starting eating solids).

On top of this, I also live in a multicultural family, just like my patients. I know what you are going through – whether it’s not finding your usual food or needing to mix completely different eating habits (and approaches!). But there’s good news! Just like in every good partnership, there’s always a way to make things work, also in the food departement.

This is what Alejandra says about Sofie

“Meeting Sofie has changed my life. Her advice has made my life so much easier and uncomplicated. She has helped me and my family find the perfect balance and relationship with food. I have been lucky to have access to several professionals who have helped me understand my family’s nutritional needs, but Sofie has been the best so far. If you have the chance to meet with her, do it! You will not regret it.”

This summer, I am introducing my program Love & Peas, which focuses on finding balance in the food department, understanding the connection between weight, wellness, and nutrition, and debunking popular food myths (including whether sugar is addictive).

August – Love & Peas

In the Peas-part of my Love & Peas online program, we will deep dive into eating as a learning process and discover which eating competences we want to grow and nourish for ourselves and our families. Plus, I give you practical tools on how to really do this! Here also, you get weekly group session.

FAQ

How do I know Family Food Flow is what I and my family need?

Family Food Flow is designed for anyone who faces challenges with family nutrition. If you recognize the struggles mentioned in the sales page, my new membership is tailored to help you and your family overcome them. To avoid any surprises, I recommend booking a free digital introductory session of 30 minutes with me so that we can explore if Family Food Flow is a good solution for you and your family.

When is Family Food Flow NOT for me?

My membership may not be suitable for you if:

    • You never reflect on your relationship with food and don’t question your eating habits.
    • You’re seeking new recipes, like to weigh quantities or like to follow strict instructions.
    • You or a family member has a medical problem that needs to be solved first (please check this with me during a free digital introductory session of 30 minutes).
    • You have little interest in long-term health effects or in adopting an open-minded, non-restrictive approach to health
    • You don’t believe I can help your child(ren) only if you also embody your family’s nutrition goals.
    • You don’t speak English (as all the information of the membership is given in English).

My youngest child is younger than 6 months or older than 6 years old. Can I still join?

Yes, you can still join, but I recommend checking with me through a free digital introductory session of 30 minutes to ensure my membership aligns with your expectations.

Will I receive personalized recipes?

No, you won’t receive personalized recipes, but you will receive inspiration and guidance for cooking balanced family meals.

Sofie, this is a group membership, will I get personalized advice?

You can ask me all your questions about the given information and I get back to this during a group session. My advice will be an answer to your practical, non-medical questions (in a group Q&A or podcast), but this membership does NOT include personalized advice to your medical situation or other health challenges. If you need this, you can always book consultations with me – also as a Family Food Flow member (allowing us to really apply everything learned in the membership together on a personal level.

Can you guarantee results?

I can guarantee that you will gain valuable insights on how to feed yourself and your family. Yet, Family Food Flow is a membership with a focus on knowledge and practical tools. I engage to you in terms of efforts, but not in terms results. Learning how to eat is a very gradual process and a lot is happening under the iceberg. You might need to unlearn more than you learn from me. Giving me your feedback during our time together and staying open-minded for any of the theoretical models given is crucial. The testimonials on this page come from patients who did four personal sessions with me.

How can I cancel the membership?

If you want to cancel your membership, you send me an email and you won’t have to pay anymore starting next month. Please note that you’re currently paying the seeding member rate, which will never return.

Does my health insurance (partly) reimburse your program?

Schedule a free digital introductory session if you would like more information about health insurance reimbursements.

I don’t live in the Brussels Capital Region. Can I join?

Sure, real live events might be included in the membership, but it is still very valuable to join from distance/abroad.

Why should I work with you and not another dietitian?

If you value honesty, helpful feedback, insightful guidance, and authenticity, I’m the right choice for you. Being a mother myself and having let go of diet culture through my son’s eating adventure, I offer a non-diet, nourishing and non-restrictive perspective on food. I’m to the point and no-nonsense while maintaining a gentle approach. I also put you – and your partner – first so that you can truly embody your family’s nutrition goals.

Do you have general conditions?
