What does a true passion for nutrition look like?


Most of us don't lack available information about food & health.  In fact, the overabundance of ideas about the best foods to choose or avoid can be overwhelming and even harmful depending on who's opinion is the loudest. 

Have you been looking for a nutritionist that’s licensed in Pennsylvania? I started Stefanski Nutrition Services in York, PA in 2015 to provide private nutrition consults in York, PA and via telehealth.

I’ve specialized in gastrointestinal disorders and pediatric nutrition for the past twelve years.   As a pediatric dietitian for eight years at Wellspan York Hospital I assisted families whose children had feeding issues or trouble gaining weight, tube feedings, autism, and food allergies.

For adults I’ve worked hard to help determine diet changes to improve digestion and cope with such challenges as celiac disease and eosinophilic esophagitis.

I had the privilege of working with multiple families over the years in my role as the ketogenic dietitian for the neurology department at Wellspan. As a certified diabetes educator for the past fifteen years this helped me assist my adult clients with diabetes in examining whether their carbohydrate goals were the right fit for decreasing complications.

While I don’t currently accept insurance as a registered dietitian I will provide you with a copy of your bill which you can submit to insurance for possible reimbursement. Feel free to email me at stefanskinutrition@gmail.com

As the first Registered Dietitian Nutritionist for Leg Up Farm, a unique facility for special needs children in Mt. Wolf, PA Julie assisted families to improve their health through good nutrition. 

I earned a bachelor’s degree in dietetics and nutrition along with a master’s degree in Adult Education from Penn State.  I was an instructor in the Stabler Department of Nursing at York College in York, PA for thirteen years teaching a three credit course for nursing students and have published a chapter on pediatric nutrition in the textbook Nutrition & Diet Therapy for Nurses.
