Learn about a local dietitian who launched a nutrition consulting company to offer in-home assessments, grocery store tours, and one-on-one counseling to help you live your best and healthiest life one bite at a time.
Working with individuals to improve their quality of life is something that Candace Winterbauer became increasingly interested in after she went from working mom to stay-at-home mom to her children.
“When I became pregnant with our third child I decided to invest in my career by starting my own company,” she says.
Since she quit her job as an outpatient dietitian, she noticed that the aspect of helping others was missing, so she launched Winterbauer Nutrition.
“Starting my own company allows me to be at home with my family while also following my passion for nutrition,” she says.
Winterbauer Nutrition is a nutrition consulting company that offers medical nutrition therapy to clients with one-on-one counseling, family counseling, in-home assessments, grocery store tours, and even offers a specialty in baby-led weaning.
Winterbauer herself is the lead lady behind Winterbauer Nutrition, although she also credits her husband for the support he’s provided since she started dreaming of running her own company. She says her children also make appearances when she works with families who are interested in baby-led weaning.
The services offered by Winterbauer are not solely limited to nutrition, as she is also a personal trainer who holds a Masters of Science in Nutrition and Physical Performance.
“I can offer the full package to clients who want to improve not only their nutrition but also their physical activity levels,” she adds.
When it comes to the quality of service she offers, Winterbauer says she’s a very laid back person and prides herself on her ability to bring that level of calm to her counseling.
“One of the most common compliments I get from my clients is that they felt very comfortable working with me,” Winterbauer says.
Thanks in her interest and educational background in nutrition, Winterbauer has gained an additional interested in edible landscaping and gardening after becoming involved in urban gardening and farming during while completing graduate work at Saint Louis University.
“I saw a lot of success in nutrition goals with individuals who started to either grow their own food or join a community supported agriculture (CSA) program,” she says. “And I would love to start tying these passions into either workshops or individual counseling.”
