Conversation 104: The Story, Journey and Passion of Tonya Huenink, RD, LD
“While I was working in different settings, so many people said “I will eat what you tell me to.” I realized I am passionate about families eating together and I do think I have the knowledge and the resources to help people with this.” - Tonya Huenink, RD, LD
Today’s conversation is with Tonya Huenink, a registered dietitian who has worked in all areas of dietetics and has started her own meal planning business called Meal Squeeze.
Tonya is native to my favorite state of Iowa and at one point worked for the same company as I did. Throughout her adventures as a Registered Dietitian, she has worked in many different areas of dietetics including clinical, outpatient, food service and school nutrition. Tonya has developed a passion over the years for equipping families of all sizes to sit down for a balanced meal together which has lead to her creating her own business. Not only is this meal planning service great for families but it is also great for other registered dietitians to use with their own clients. Tonya shares some great insight of how she created her business, marketing and a few business tools she has discovered along the way.
Please enjoy my conversation with Tonya.
