Stacey Kemeys Editor My Kids Lick The Bowl
I am Stacey, editor, creative director, and general one man band behind the My Kids Lick The Bowl Blog. I am absolutely thrilled to meet you.
This is me, and my youngest daughter Eloise, she is a pretty cute 15 month old in this picture.
I’m a mum living in New Zealand and I am a self proclaimed Kid Food Expert. Let me explain how I decided I had the necessary background to claim this title, and you can decide if you are happy with my reasonings or not.
know a heap about Human Nutrition and feeding kids. Not because I’ve googled it or completed a 6 week online course. I know my stuff because:
I studied human nutrition at university for 5 years
- I have a BSc in Human Nutrition from the University of Otago
- I backed this up with a Post Graduate Diploma in Dietetics
- This means I qualified Dietitian
- I worked for 10 years
I’ve been a clinical dietitian in a hospital looking after people with specific and tricky nutrition needs
I’ve been involved in research with the University of Otago
I’ve lived the corporate life, working for two of the biggest medical nutrition and infant formula companies in the world
I am a mum
I have 3 munchkins ridiculously close in age, You will laugh. At the moment they are 1, 2 and 3 years old. So trust me, I’ve been there done that, and am hopefully wiser and more practical for it.
I am not a perfect mum or a crafty mum or even a particularly sporty mum. I am a ‘kitchen mum’. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I love cooking, eating, and most importantly hiding in there while my munchkins run a muck.
Return to the workforce one day
But in the mean time, I have this blog. Where you can learn from me and my experience for free. Let’s create happy eaters who enjoy being at the dinner table, and in the process you can help me maintain my sanity.
