Heal Your Child’s Gut Health and Improve Their Well-Being

Relief from Tummy Troubles, Picky Eating, and More

Are you struggling to manage your child’s digestive issues, picky eating, or sleep disturbances?

As a pediatric and family dietitian, and as a mother whose son struggled with eczema, chronic sinusitis, tummy troubles (the poor kid barfed all the time!), and GERD, I understand the fear and frustration some parents have when trying to figure out what is going on.

My personalized approach focuses on healing your child’s gut and enhancing their overall well-being through targeted anti-inflammatory eating patterns. All while considering the whole family’s relationship with food and eating.  

So, how does LEAP actually help your child?

Benefits of My Program for Children:

  • Resolve GERD, constipation, diarrhea, and other digestive issues
  • When children FEEL better, they are more open to trying new foods. 
  • Help your child sleep better and wake up feeling refreshed, no more snoring, bedwetting, or sleep disruptions. 
  • Address chronic conditions such as eczema, migraines, and fatigue.
Individual support for individual problems

Inflammation and chronic unwellness are highly individualized; and, so are the solutions. What works for your kiddo might not work for another. That’s why the LEAP program is tailored specifically to your child’s needs. Each journey is unique, and my mission is to create a safe and personalized experience for every client. 

Science-backed testing

My program is rooted in the Mediator Release Test (MRT), a blood test that measures how your white blood cells react to 176 foods and food chemicals. This goes beyond standard food sensitivity tests, providing actionable insights to guide your dietary changes. With the MRT, we can determine what foods are  leading to inflammation and get you feeling better in a matter of weeks. Some people even see results in days!

Inclusion diet instead of an elimination diet

Unlike traditional elimination diets that focus on removing potential triggers, my program emphasizes an “inclusion diet” approach. This means we focus on incorporating a variety of safe, non-reactive foods to nourish their body while avoiding inflammatory triggers. This method not only helps them feel better faster but also promotes a positive and sustainable relationship with food. 

Holistic approach to your problems

While food and nutrition are at the core, I also focus on food parenting, sleep, movement, emotional and overall wellness. My comprehensive approach ensures that your child not only feels better but we also address the whole family’s eating and nutrition lifestyle and dynamics.

“Our 2-year-old was struggling with irregular bowel movements and severe belly pains, leading to a cycle of not eating and not pooping.

After reaching out to Sara, my son is now pooping regularly and eating comfortably. Sara helped us with meal times, seating arrangements, milk choices, and our mindset. Her little tweaks led to big successes for our boy. It was wonderful to work with Sara; she is extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and patient.”

– The Morelli Family

“Our son struggled with severe eczema, frequent vomiting, anxiety, and chronic sinus issues.

After trying lots of things with little success, we decided to try the LEAP/MRT program with Sara. Within just a few days of eliminating his reactive foods, his eczema started to improve significantly, and he said his hands didn’t itch anymore. The most surprising finding was that his highest reaction was to ginger, which we never expected. His transformation has been remarkable, and now when he starts to feel bad, at least we know what to look for. We are so grateful for Sara’s guidance!”

FAQ About LEAP and MRT Testing

What makes the MRT different from other food sensitivity tests?

The MRT is not just another food sensitivity test. While many tests only identify potential triggers, the MRT measures the actual inflammatory response your body has to specific foods and chemicals.

Throughout the LEAP For Littles program, you will have access to comprehensive support, including:

  • An initial 90-minute assessment to review your child’s MRT results and create their personalized eating plan.
  • Up to six 45-minute follow-up sessions to track progress and make adjustments.
  • Direct chat access for questions and support between sessions.
  • Meal planning assistance and tailored meal plans.
  • Ongoing symptom and food journaling feedback.
  • A 6-month wrap-up call to ensure long-term success.

 

Can I use my Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to pay for the program?
