Meet Carrie

Carrie Sacco, RN has worked in the field of mental health since 1985.

Her observation of meal and snack offerings in hospital and respite settings caused her concern. The foods consumed by both staff and people seeking treatment were often in contradiction to promoting good health. With the desire to inspire change, Healthy Attitudes was created and implemented for the first time in 2017.

The name has since evolved into Inspiring Nutritional Choices and customized programs have been delivered to organizations serving adults and children and has included staff and therapists.
