Hi! My name is Lynn Dugan. I am a Registered Dietitan with a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology. My work has focused in cardiovascular research, sports nutrition and nutrition communications. My *best* experience related to this blog is the challenge of feeding my four active children. That is a job! One has food allergies, another is very picky, one needs extra calories due to sports and one just likes everything (except anything with ketchup or barbeque sauce). I realize how difficult it is with active schedules and the demands of life to feed kids a healthy diet. And since it is not easy for me as a nutrition professional, I am certain it is hard for us all. I will use this platform to share recent success and lessons in feeding my kids and any helpful nutrition & fitness tips.
We are an active family and enjoy a variety of sports. I like to bike and run. My husband likes to swim and bike. My kids each participate in several sports including: swimming, soccer, basketball, hockey, and lacrosse. Fitness is important for everyone. Finding something you like and making it routine (combined with a healthy diet) is the key to achieving optimal health.
Faith is the foundation of our lives. I pray throughout the day to get the strength I need to feed this active family and to help them navigate this world. The Bible is my guide for all areas of my life.
