My name is Sarah Remmer, and I’m a registered dietitian (since 2006) mom of 3 and the proud founder and President of The Centre for Family Nutrition, a Calgary-based nutrition counselling practice that specializes in child and family nutrition. I lead a team of amazing dietitian moms who help families with feeding and nutrition challenges.
I’m also a writer and speaker and spend a lot of my time creating nutrition content for parents, caregivers, teachers and other health professionals, developing recipes, and presenting on topics related to nutrition and feeding. I work with organizations, commodity groups and brands (like Susgrainable!) that align with my values as a mom and dietitian.
I also published my first book with Appetite by Random House in early 2021, entitled Food to Grow On, The Ultimate Guide to Childhood Nutrition—from Pregnancy to Packed Lunches. It’s an easy-to-navigate guidebook for parents that answers every nutrition question from prenatal to school-aged!
I want parents to feel a sense of relief, peace of mind, community and support when it comes to feeding their families. My nutrition philosophy is rooted in Ellyn Satter’s Division of Responsibility in Feeding, The Intuitive Eating Approach, and the Health at Every Size (HAES) approach. Simply put, I have dedicated my career to combating diet culture and to helping parents feel supported to raise children who trust their bodies, enjoy a variety of foods mindfully and who have a positive relationship with food and body long term, so they can fully bloom in all areas of life. I’m also fiercely passionate about teaching parents and kids about where food comes from, sustainability and cutting down on food waste, which is why my partnership with Susgrainableis a match made in heaven!
I’m so thrilled to be a part of the Susgrainable team, as their lead dietitian and nutrition spokesperson. When I was first introduced to Susgrainable, I knew that I had to work with them. Their amazing baking mixes are a parent’s dream, and the dietitian in me loves the fact that their star ingredient – upcycled barley – comes from rescued grain (from beer production). And, of course, their nutrient-packed ingredients list was the icing on top. I love that these mixes are loaded with staying power (protein and fibre) and that they're loaded with vitamins and minerals too.
Each month, I’ll be sharing my favourite ways to use Susgrainable baking mixes over
on my IG Feed, along with a new
nutrition-related blog post on the Susgrainable blog. Make sure that you also sign up for Susgrainable’s monthly newsletter, because I’ll be a regular contributor to that as well! If you have any nutrition or feeding-related questions, don’t hesitate to send them my way
at firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you’re a parent looking for nutrition and feeding advice on anything from picky eating to family menu planning, make sure to check out my website at
