Alison Kaufman, MS, RD, LDN

Registered Dietitian, Licensed Dietitian/Nutritionist

“I really enjoy helping people with body image by encouraging self-compassion, awareness and practice (not perfection).”

Alison helps patients notice progress they might not notice on their own and helps them build a basis from which to work. She believes it’s possible for meals to feel less stressful, for guilt to decrease and for negative self-talk to be quieter. Alison helps parents gain confidence and skills to help their kids get the nutrition they need, despite feeding or growth concerns. She also helps student athletes understand how to properly fuel for their sport.

Alison has been practicing nutrition for 15 years. Prior to Metrowest Nutrition, she was a program director at Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Greater Boston for nine years. Early in her career, she worked at the Boston University Sargent Choice Nutrition Center, where she counseled faculty, staff and students. She also helped establish the on-campus healthy dining program. Additionally, Alison worked at Newton Wellesley Hospital as an inpatient dietitian.

Alison earned her bachelor’s in Dietetics and master’s in Nutrition Science from Boston University. She completed her dietetic internship at Newton Wellesley Hospital.
