Keri Stoner-Davis, MS, RDN, LD
Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Education and Resources Manager
Keri believes food is a common language that everyone understands, but also realizes how difficult it is to understand the essential role of nutrition within one’s daily routine and health. Keri loves assisting people in merging the comfort that food brings them, with the strength that nutrition provides. Keri often describes herself as a coach for nutrition instruction – She just provides the information to help people be successful and achieve their nutritional and health related goals. She does whatever is necessary to deliver evidenced-based science of nutrition, in a way that anyone and everyone of all ages can easily understand.
Keri considers herself to be a lifelong learner. She truly believes there is always something new to be learned on a daily basis. It is through her love of learning, that she discovered her true passion of teaching and educating within the field of nutrition. Through her years of being a RDN, she has always truly enjoyed spending time with individuals, one-on-one, discussing food choices and customizing nutritional care plans.
Keri graduated from Kansas State University (KSU) with a B.S. in Nutritional Sciences and a B.S. in Exercise Sciences. She graduated from Texas Woman’s University (TWU) with her M.S. in Exercise and Sports Nutrition, in addition to also completing her supervised practices hours to become a credentialed RDN. Over the last 15+ years, Keri has worked in many different environments as a RDN: acute care/hospital, long-term care facilities, out-patient diabetes self-management programs, and with various community nutrition and wellness initiatives. Keri is a certified dietitian coach for the Freedom Wellness program.
Even though, Keri and her husband still sometimes refer to Kansas as “home,” they made the DFW area their home since moving there in 1999. Since then, they have been continuously active in their community, professions, and just enjoying everyday life with their elementary school aged daughter and her activities.

- weelicious.com -- allergy friendly, make in bulk/freeze, healthy snacks, baby food, toddler, kid and family friendly meal ideas.
- fruitsandveggies.org and produceforkids.com-- I often direct kids and families to these website and have the kids pick out recipes they are willing to make and try new fruits and vegetables. I also tell many adults that if a recipe refers to kid friendly, then it often means less time and fewer ingredients to make. Even if you are not a kid, or don’t have kids, look for kid friendly recipes for timeliness and ease of prep!
- thesneakychef.com -- although I don’t advocate for "sneaking" nutrition into your children’s, I love ideas on how to increase nutrient density and fortify foods with nutrition. My favorite recipe is pureeing white beans and incorporating into the homemade macaroni and cheese to increase fiber and protein content!
- www.kroger.com -- I utilize their ClickLIst and use their recipe ideas when planning my menus and grocery lists. They have simple, but delicious, recipe & meal ideas! You can utilize the grocery store of your choice or where you shop for meal ideas as well.

- verywellfit.com -- I like their recipes, but sometime their nutrition advice can be diet, fad, and pop-culture nutrition oriented? I am not sure if you want to include this one?
- https://www.mealtime.org/ -- I like this website for recipes on how to maximize nutrition density and incorporate beans, etc. However, it also known as the canned food alliance? Not sure if you want to include this one as well?
