First Foods

food freedom in motherhood


I’m Mariah. I’m a Registered Dietitian and the owner of First Foods. When I began this private practice in February of 2022, I was on a mission to teach new parents how to confidently introduce solids to their babies.

I still really love that area of nutrition. But, what I came to realize is that it’s really hard to teach your child to have a healthy relationship with food, one built around trust in their bodies, if you as a mother haven’t first learned to do that for yourself.

So, I pivoted a bit. I began offering one on one sessions to moms and women who are sick of feeling like the only road to body confidence or happiness is to go on another diet in the endless pursuit of weight loss. Working through the principles of intuitive eating together, I’ve helped these women finally feel at peace around all foods and finally feel like they can respect their body without trying to change it.


I’m now a stay-at-home mom. While my focus day to day is to raise my boys, I’m here to share real-life with you. I hope you’ll find encouragement, relatable content and uplifting ways you can pursue food freedom.
