Need to contact Melanie?  

Parent Inquiries

Melanie provides parent coaching via pre-scheduled phone consults for one hour as needed. These consults are strictly educational in nature and not intended to be feeding therapy.  Coaching is not covered by insurance.  Parents often seek out Mel’s expertise for a variety of concerns including how to make mealtimes less stressful and how to encourage kids to try new foods.  It is highly recommended that you take The Picky Eater Course before setting up a personal consult with Coach Mel in order to get the most information to help your child.

Due to the high number of emails Melanie receives asking for advice, it is not possible for her to respond to each one.  The best way to reach Melanie is to set up a one hour consult.

Media Inquiries

Please use the contact form.  Phone calls for media requests can often be set up on the same day that an email is received.

Product Consulting

Got a product that’s focused on kids and food?  Melanie provides professional consulting to companies large and small to ensure that a product meets a child's developmental needs.  Knowing how a child learns to become a healthy, happy eater is essential to your product’s success.  Please note that Melanie will not consult nor endorse a product that does not align with her professional philosophies.

Melanie has been an amazing expert on feeding for children with special needs.  When we first approached Melanie on our product FunBites she was eager to use it and understand its application.  She knows what products work best with kids, how to use them and even creates posts, videos and present in courses her ideas.  She has been a true asset to the FunBites team.  We love forward to working with Melanie for years to come on existing and new products in our portfolio.  Her advice and support is beyond compare.
