Jessica Ferris, BSc, RD
Jessica graduated from Brescia University College in London Ontario with her Bachelor of Science in Human Ecology with Honours in Foods and Nutrition in 2009. Jessica then completed her Accredited Internship with the Northern Ontario Dietetic Internship program in 2011. Jessica is presently a Registered Dietitian in good standing with the College of Dietitians of Ontario and offers her services in private practice in London.
As an advocate for breastfeeding and the development of a healthy feeding relationship, Jessica understands how influential the introduction of solid foods can be on future health and a child’s eating competence. Helping all parents build trust and confidence in providing these first steps are vital to establishing a healthy feeding relationship and managing picky eating.
With compassion and an understanding of the many barriers and anxieties towards introducing solid foods and weaning, Jessica uses current evidenced-based research and interdisciplinary approach to guide her practice along with compassionate support of parents and their children.
On a personal note, Jessica lives in London Ontario with her husband and their three young children. Raising their sons has allowed Jessica to practice her professional understanding of infant feeding directly on their development and provided support to her close friends and extended families.
