I’m a registered dietitian, and love sharing nutrition information that I believe will help people live their best life. As a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, I am bound by the Code of Ethics for the Dietetics Profession. The Code requires I conduct myself with honestly, integrity, fairness and support. The opinions expressed are my own and based on current scientific evidence as I interpret. The information provided on this website is not meant to be interpreted as individual nutritional counseling. While I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, the recipes and nutrition information shared are for general knowledge and not tailored to any individual. For individual nutrition counseling, please contact me at the email above.

Sponsored Content 

At times I may partner with a brand or company and may receive product or monetary compensation to provide my opinion or to develop a recipe or other content. If that’s the case, I will always make it known and provide my honest opinion on the product or my experience with the product. 

Affiliate Programs

I post affiliate links to products used in recipes. For example, Once Upon a Pumpkin is a part of Amazon Services LLC Associates Programs, an affiliate program that I earn fees from if my readers purchase products I link to through Amazon links and other affiliated websites. There is no additional cost to you if you purchase through the links and all links are products I truly use or recommend. This program utilizes cookies to track visits for the purposes of assigning commission on these sales.

I am also a participant of the rewardStyle Affiliate program. rewardStyle is a platform designed to provide a means for me to earn fees by linking to various retail brands and affiliated sites. As part of this program, Once Upon a Pumpkin can post customized links, provided by rewardStyle, to track the referrals to their websites. This program utilizes cookies to track visits for the purposes of assigning commission on these sales.

On occasion, Once Upon a Pumpkin will participate in other non-specified affiliate programs, which have the capability to track the referrals to their websites and utilize cookies to track visits for the purposes of assigning commission on these sales.
