Launched: Lara Field, MS, RD, CSP, LDN

LaunchHER says: We simply adore passion, and seeing a woman pour her passion into an incredible woman-owned business is inspiring and invigorating! A service that can benefit our children in such a HUGE way makes us stand in awe!

In HER words:

FEED is a privately owned pediatric nutrition counseling business founded in 2008 by registered dietitian Lara Field, MS, RD, CSP, LDN.

Kids need guidance from mom and dad in everything from brushing their teeth to putting on clothes to riding a bike! But when it comes to making smart eating decisions, however, many parents don’t practice healthy eating habits themselves. I am a Chicago based pediatric dietitian, who can help teach you the vital tools needed to establish a healthy lifestyle. Learn from FEED and help your kids Form Early Eating Decisions that will last a lifetime!

I can’t be next to you as you’re helping your child to take her first steps, but I can help your children with: healthy eating habits, eating on the run, grocery shopping advice, food allergies/intolerance management, celiac disease/gluten intolerance, type 1 diabetes, high cholesterol, liver disease, obesity, feeding tube management, failure to gain weight, in addition to many other diagnoses.

I have always had a passion for kids’ nutrition. With over nine years experience in clinical practice at two of the top ranked pediatric hospitals in the country, Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago and University of Chicago Medical Center. I have specialized in pediatric nutritional care including the pediatric intensive care unit and pediatric gastroenterology and hepatology clinics. I am board certified as a specialist in pediatric nutrition (CSP) and have completed the requirements of the Food Allergy & Intolerance Management & PAC Registered Dietitian Consultant Training Program.

I completed my Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and completed a Master’s of Science degree and dietetic internship from Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois. During my internship, I completed additional specialized pediatric training at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago and John’s Hopkins in Baltimore.

I currently live in Chicago with my husband, Tom, and son, Tyler, who was born in April 2008. As an avid runner, I have completed three marathons, including the Chicago Marathon in 2006 and 2009, and Boston Marathon in 2007. An acclaimed “foodie”, I have a deep love for dining at the newest restaurants, cooking and testing new recipes, and especially enjoy preparing foods for Tyler.

Freshly Launched :: Southern Wears

Freshly Launched :: Southern Wears
Launched: Ciarla Molino

LaunchHER says: We love personalization, and preppy personalization just puts us right over the edge of pure giddiness!

In HER Words:

Born and raised in Atlanta, GA, I grew up loving a classic monogram like any other Southerner. And as a stay-at-home mom to my two young sons who were outgrowing their monogrammed jon-jons and smocked longalls faster than the blink of an eye, I knew I wanted to create a line of personalized yet preppy tees that would not only be age appropriate for children, but for adults as well. I am nothing if not uber picky about the clothes I put on my children, and let’s face it, it becomes awfully hard to pull off a cute monogram on an 8 year old boy! Hence, Southern Wears and Gifts was born. What truly makes my line stand out apart from the others, is that very few of my graphics are geared specifically for children, yet any and all of them are adorable on anyone from a 6 month old to 100 year old. Each and every tee I ship is wrapped with a bow and topped off with its own “Washing Instructions” tag so you can make sure you’re giving your tees the proper care to last them a lifetime.

In addition to tees, the Southern Wears and Gifts product line also includes custom holiday cards and stationery. I charge no design fee, and my cards are professionally printed and double sided with a full bleed (printed to the edge of the card) and shipped directly to your door. Customers either choose from one of my many previously created designs or they will email me styles and colors they like, and I create something completely custom just for them that no one else will have. It’s a fun process and most people just love the idea of a double sided card so they can pack in the pictures instead of having to pick one or two.

New to Southern Wears and gifts are personalized collapsible European Market Totes (perfect for tailgating, boating, keeping in the car, mail, or ANYTHING!) and drawstring Cinch Backpacks which make great Halloween trick-or-treat bags, sleep over bags or after school sports practice bags for those change of clothes and cleats. With my chocolate Labrador, Millie at my feet when I’m sitting at my computer working on new graphics and ideas for Southern Wears and Gifts, it is great fun for me to come up with classic, preppy, personalized and ageless designs I myself would put on my own boys.
