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.
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.
You will have access to 4 unique programs to address specifically where you are in your adventure of motherhood. All nutrition programs are included for only $5/month. The MommaStrong FUEL membership is intended to support your MommaStrong fitness membership but it is a separate enrollment and fee.
This nutrition program meets you where you are in your pregnancy. Whether you have that elusive "glow" and mojo or more of the norm—beached whale status with cankles, we are here to make sure you get the nutrition information you need to support all the amazing things your body is doing during this time. Do not forget you are actually growing a human!
You are doing the most AMAZING thing—growing a human. We want you to have all the knowledge you need to take care of yourself during this time.
This program focuses on what happens right after birth from 0–6 months postpartum and through your breastfeeding journey. You are probably a little confused (and a lot sleep deprived) about what you should be doing during this time. Strange things may have happened to your body that no one ever told you were even possible. But don't worry. MommaStrong will help you work through any areas that need your attention. New Momma goes like this:
This is the standard program for all Mommas. This covers the basics of taking care of your nutrition needs no matter your situation. Comfort eater? Stop here. Can't find time for food? Yep. Special Issues? We got you covered.
You have a lot to do and we want you to be fueled to get it all done without forgetting to take care of YOUR body and mind.
The Kitchen program focuses on organizing your pantry to make balanced meals and snacks a reality. It also provides tips and tools for meal planning and grocery shopping. And for some specific cooking inspiration get ready for some cooking demos by Chef Carla (a MommaStrong member!). The program includes:
With your membership, you also get access to amazing support in our closed MommaStrong FUEL Facebook group. This group will be a bit different from the MommaStrong closed Facebook group. It will be monitored daily by our registered dietitians who will answer any questions you may have. We will also keep membership very tight and only allow current members to remain in the group.
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.
