Background

Hi there! I’m Arella Fields, MPH, RD, LD, a clinical pediatric registered dietitian, expert in Public Health, and lover of all things food. As the founder and CEO of Food&Nutrition by Arella (FNA), my purpose is to maintain an organization that sheds light on the importance of nutrients in foods and supplements and how they can help manage chronic conditions or contribute to overall good health in children and adolescents.

The significance of nutrition first appealed to me in college when I had a dietetics professor that made daily exercise a part of the class grade. I first thought “What is wrong with this person? Doesn’t she know as college students, we have too much to on our plates to make time for our health?” But I soon recognized the power of her method and learned to appreciate and prioritize my well-being.

As time went on, my nutrition studies became more extensive, and I began learning about how food was utilized within individuals and within communities. Risk factors to poor nutrition status such as chronic conditions, miseducation, and food insecurity deeply concerned me. This compelled me to want to take part in making a real difference in people’s lives and their communities.

As a nutrition professional, I have an emphasis in Pediatric Clinical Nutrition and Intuitive Eating. I received training in a neonatal nutrition fellowship program at children's hospital in Texas. I volunteered as medical staff at the National Kidney Foundation and American Diabetes Association summer camps for children living with chronic kidney diseases and type 1 diabetes. Additionally, I have taught cooking classes in the academic setting to medical and graduate students, as well as in the community setting to those living in low-income neighborhoods. Subsequently, I went on serve as the registered dietitian for several skilled nursing facilities and one behavioral hospital, which allowed me to provide clinical care to adult and adolescent patients living with a variety of chronic conditions including obesity, disordered eating, depression, and cardiovascular disease. Currently, I practice as a clinical outpatient dietitian in a pediatric nutrition clinic and also care for pediatric clients and their families through my private practice, FNA.

I read somewhere that relationships are our greatest wealth, which includes how we relate to food. I believe the more we learn about foods and how they can enrich our lives, the more empowered we become to maintain our wellness.
