We know that nutrition is a key component of your health and well-being so in addition to our fitness program, we are now offering a nutrition program, MommaStrong FUEL. The program covers all stages of motherhood and was created by registered dietitians (who also happen to be MommaStrongers!).

Programs include Get Started, Fundamentals, Momma-To-Be, New Momma, Momma, and Kitchen. The programs consist of bitesize 5-15 minute streaming videos. Some of our nutrition topics include gestational diabetes, fertility, PMS, breastfeeding and tons more. Our Kitchen program offers inspiration about organizing your pantry, meal planning and grocery shopping. We will have monthly content updates as well as a closely moderated, closed Facebook group where you can get answers to your questions from our registered dietitians, and support from other member Mommas. You will also have access to a MommaStrong FUEL pinterest account with lots of delicious recipes. If you prefer not to interact on Facebook regularly, we also provide a week in review email that summarizes the conversations and topics from the week. And as always, you can reach out to us at [email protected] with questions.

Our Core Beliefs.

We believe that nutrition is key to overall health and well-being, and want to support our members in creating a balanced, joyful relationship with food. FUEL utilizes the practice of Intuitive Eating—learning to understand, honor, and respond to our body’s need for fuel. We believe in the Health at Every Size (HAES) approach, embracing the natural diversity of body shapes and sizes, and challenging the idea that only certain body types can be healthy.

We believe in practicing sensitivity on topics that may be triggering for others but also we need to create space for people to talk honestly and openly. We want to have tolerance for different situations and beliefs.

We support evidence-based and individualized nutrition recommendations. Our nutrition information is created by registered dietitians who are the experts in this field.

We believe in nurturing long-term, sustainable behaviors around food and eating. No diets, elimination or deprivation required. We are not focused on weight loss as a final outcome but instead on learning to fuel our individual bodies to feel our best, and to show up in the world the way we desire.

Frequently Asked Questions

You will get access to all three nutrition programs, Momma-To-Be, New Momma and Momma as well as access to the closed Facebook group where registered dieticians will be available daily to answer any questions you may have.

This subscription does not provide a specific meal plan for the week but we will talk about meal prep and provide tools and information on a sustainable way to create nourishing, fulfilling meals for yourself and your family.

Our focus is not on weight loss. Instead we want to provide education about how to nourish your body through the different stages of motherhood. It will help you learn how to listen to your body and honor its signals and needs. This may result in weight loss over time, but is not our objective. Just as in our MommaStrong fitness program, we value function over appearance.

If you have dietary restrictions such as Celiac or any known food allergy, you will still benefit from this information. You will also benefit if you are vegan or vegetarian. This program will provide you with basic knowledge about general nutrition needs throughout the phases of motherhood. These principles can be applied to your specific needs.
