Nutrition Programs at the y

Meet our Dietitian Andrea Wagner! Andrea received her Bachelors in Dietetics from UW-Stevens Point and Masters in Applied Nutrition from Northeastern University.  She has been a Dietitian for over 7 years, working as a clinical Dietitian for 6 of them, and recently branching out into private practice and community nutrition.  She is not only a Dietitian, but a wife, mom, and dog mom.  In her spare time she loves to create healthier versions of common recipes, read about areas of nutrition she is not as familiar with, and have family game night with her kids.  She often speak about nutrition through community events, local News Broadcasts, articles in news papers, and more.  Andrea believes every life can be changed through good nutrition, and it is a mission of hers to help as many people as possible learn about good nutrition.

personal nutrition services

We recognize that ‘one-size-fits-all’ nutrition advice often fails to optimize health. Greater long term success is achieved when one’s individual health needs and goals are evaluated and a personal strategy is devised that incorporates accountability and behavior change strategies. Your nutrition sessions will include a nutrition plan, specifically for you, as well as accountability, support and strategies specific for you to help you achieve your goals.

MONTHLY NUTRITION NUGGETS

Each month, our registered dietitian speaks on nutrition trends and topics, diving into greater details which then yields expert opinion on potential benefits and/or risks. We live in a world where google can make everyone an “expert”, but when it comes to your health, we want to offer real expert advice, to help you sift out what’s good for you, and what to steer away from.
