Foodtrition Life

Thank you so much for visiting my place today!  It is a pleasure for me to fill you out with information but also to know each other. My name is Mercedes Benadivas. I am a nutritionist graduated from the Central University of Venezuela. I worked as a resident at the Hospital de Clinicas Caracas for 2 years and then I became part of a wonderful work team in private practice formed by pediatricians, neurologist, innmunologists, and metabolic diseases specialist, where I worked 8 years. During those years, I focused on providing nutritional education and counseling to families and children diagnosed within the spectrum of autism, ADHD, food sensitivities and chronic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.

In 2014, I moved with my whole family to Miami Florida where I began my nutrition studies again to obtain a Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist license. Then in 2017, I trained to specialize in food sensitivities obtaining the Certified Leap Therapist (CLT) certificate.

In addition to all the nutrition facts, I am a proud mom of 4 (2 boys and 2 girls) who have taught me and pushed me to seek answers to each of the nutritional challenges I have faced with them every day.

 

That is why, the service I offer includes not only about what I was trained for, but also from my experience as a busy mom. Certainly, after 4 children, I can strongly say that there is a huge gap between what the literature shows and tells and what can actually be achieved in each home since every child is whole world of multiple challenges.  

 

     My personal experience and my training have given me these tools and skills to adjust the feeding and nutrition plan according to the particular needs of each family. 

 

     I am ready to work with you!
