Simple Nutrition For Hungry Families

Founded by Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) Stephanie Van’t Zelfden, Nutrition Hungry provides families with simple and factual nutrition advice. We believe everyone has the right to live healthy, happy, and free from worrying about their weight, body size, and chronic disease. And good nutrition habits begin in childhood.

Feeding your kids can feel like taking a road trip without a GPS. We know where we want to end up - happy and healthy. But how we get there, that can be the complicated part. There are always going to be questions and challenges on the best foods for your family. And this is where the expert advice of a Registered Dietitian comes in. 

Yes, you may get some wonderful nutrition advice and feeding tips from your family, your friends, and celebrities on Instagram. But a Registered Dietitian has the education, the training, and the research skills to give you the facts. There are lots of myths out there about nutrition that just aren’t worth your time. When you come to Nutrition Hungry, the advice you get will always be from the experts and always based in science.

Through simple, research-based nutrition advice, easy & healthy recipes, and cooking lessons that bring kids into the kitchen, you’ll gain the knowledge and skills you need to feed your family with confidence!

Nutrition Hungry Founder & Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Stephanie Van't Zelfden


Registed Dietitian Nutritionist

Hi there! I’m Stephanie. I’m a food writer, home cook, and most recently, a mom. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Health & Nutrition Sciences from Brooklyn College, and completed my dietetic internship at Queens College. I also hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from New York University, and was a project manager & operations director in the private equity industry. Since starting my career in nutrition, I have worked in daycare centers, preschools, non-profit organizations, outpatient clinics, and nursing homes. I have counseled people of all ages, from infants to seniors, on healthy eating, managing food allergies, and other nutrition challenges.

Since becoming a mom, I have learned first-hand the unique challenges that come along with feeding a family. Like all new parents, I’ve spent endless hours online (mostly in the middle of the night) navigating through confusing and conflicting nutrition advice. Nutrition Hungry is my effort to share both my professional knowledge as a Registered Dietitian, and my personal experiences as a mom. I promise to provide you with accurate nutrition advice and practical ways to apply it to your life. Thanks for being Nutrition Hungry with me!
