Why Clients Love New York Dietician Allison Schulman

"I enjoyed my visit with Allison because she was attentive, thoughtful in her approach and pragmatic in creating a realistic eating plan to suit my needs and help me reach my goals. I look forward to working with her. She is warm and our conversation was easy. I highly recommend her." Keisha L.

Better Nutrition for Better Health

Nutritionist developing diet plan

Making healthier choices during mealtime may seem like a daunting task, but Allison believes in providing food-based education in incremental steps. A nutrition plan can center around overall goals, and can be implemented gradually to keep your child and family from becoming overwhelmed by new, healthier meals. As new foods are introduced, the health benefits offered will begin to reveal themselves. Do not be surprised when you have more energy, less lethargy, and your clothes begin to fit a bit looser in the waist. 

Providing new meals offering higher levels of nutritional value will take some getting used to, especially if you are looking to make major changes to the food choices you offer your child. While the adjustment period may seem like more trouble than it is worth, in reality, by providing healthy choices you will start to see tastes begin to change.  Proper family nutrition takes time and effort, but the health gains are worth it in the end.

Setting the Stage for a Lifetime of Wellness

Pediatric nutrition is especially important. The foods your child eats now will nurture their growing brain and body. Your child will also form the bulk of their nutritional habits before they turn 18. You can give them the gift of a healthy relationship with food by creating a sustainable, nutrient-rich eating plan now. 

Good Nutrition Starts at an Early Age

No matter the age of your child, it's never too early to create good eating habits. Parents can do a lot to make sure their kids eat nutritious, well-balanced meals, which is why pediatric nutrition is a cornerstone of family nutrition programs.

Allison can help your children eat healthy at different stages of life. She has experience creating meal plans for toddlers, K-6 children, adolescents, and teenagers. When parents encounter roadblocks with their children, Allison can offer tips on how to reinforce the importance of good nutrition and how to encourage healthy eating.

My Child Is Losing Weight Can You Help?

We all know the amount of attention that the growing problem of childhood obesity is receiving, as it should be. But Allison also works with parents to address a concern on the opposite end of the spectrum: children who have trouble maintaining their weight, or are even losing weight.

Children's appetites and growth patterns naturally fluctuate, but as a general rule of thumb, they should not lose weight. In some cases, like acute medical conditions, there is an obvious cause. In others, consulting with a nutritionist can be the first step to finding the root cause and the best solution.

Recipes, Meal Prep, and Cooking

Healthy Doesn't Mean Bland

There's a common misconception that good nutrition means flavorless snacks and meal options. That's far from the truth. Healthy foods do not have to be bland. In fact, many fresh ingredients and whole foods have rich flavors. You can make healthy breakfasts, brunches, lunches, and dinners that are rewarding experiences for your entire household.

Adventurous and Nutritious Eating

Get ready to sample new cuisines and think about food in different ways. Allison can suggest ingredients and recipes that put a rainbow on your plate and enrich the palate.

Hone Your Skills

Cooking well isn't as hard as it seems. It just takes practice and an appreciation for what you're making for your loved ones. Allison can help improve your skills as a home chef and make you feel less intimidated about trying new things in the kitchen.

Which Factors Determine My Nutrition Plan?

Because no two families are alike, your family needs a specialized nutrition plan. New York dietician Allison Schulman can take into account the following factors when addressing your nutrition goals:

Nutrition & Pregnancy Guiding Clients During a Critical Time

As a mother, Allison is particularly passionate about helping women take good care of themselves and their babies during pregnancy.

She wants her clients to keep in mind that it's just as important to choose nutritious foods as it is to be mindful of foods that could carry potential harms. While prenatal vitamins containing folic acid can be a good place to start, there's so much more you can do with some simple guidelines. Keeping factors like any increased risk for gestational diabetes in mind, she can work closely with you to design a meal plan, offer tips, or meet any other need you have during this important time in your life.

What Are the Most Important Nutrients for Pregnant Women?

A varied and balanced diet is the most important goal, but at a glance, here are three key nutrients to keep in mind:

Folate & Folic Acid

Taking folic acid, the synthetic form of folate, should be an essential part of your routine during pregnancy. Ideally, you should increase your intake even before you start trying to become pregnant. Naturally occurring sources include beans, asparagus, and spinach.


Calcium is an important building block for healthy bones and teeth – both yours and your baby's. Dairy products obviously contain high levels of calcium, but did you know that salmon and spinach do too? Fortified juices are also available, in addition to fortified cereal.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D goes hand-in-hand with calcium to build and maintain strong, healthy bones. Salmon and eggs are excellent sources of this vitamin. Similar to calcium, juice can also be fortified with vitamin D. And milk can also have vitamin D added to it as well.
