Who do you talk to about how you eat?  What other health professional cares about what you had for breakfast yesterday, or how you are going to avoid the gluten at the wedding reception?  Who helps the person with diabetes learn how to carb count?  We are the people who REALLY know how to help you with food facts, food fears, and food decisions.  If the internet alarms you, your doctor doesn’t have time for you, and your cousin sells diets pills on the side---come talk to US!

Nutrition for Living is a dynamic group of professional dietitians with one goal—to improve your health with nutrition.  Whether you need to lose weight, are newly diagnosed with diabetes, want to feed your family better , or are struggling with an eating disorder, we can help.

Sharon O’Melia Howard R.D, CDE, established Nutrition for Living in 1984 to service clients in Chester and Delaware Counties.  She has built a practice of accomplished  dietitians with a wide variety of experience and advanced training. Appointments can be made at offices in Kennett Square and Exton; phone and video nutrition counseling is also offered.

The registered dietitians are providers for major insurance plans:

Independence BCBS: Keystone and Personal Choice


Highmark BS


United Healthcare

Independence BC policies typically cover 6 visits per year. Aetna insurance covers 10-26 visits per year depending on your diagnosis.  Some Highmark policies can be unlimited in their nutrition counseling benefits. Nutrition for Living can accommodate out of state Blue Cross Blue Shield policies.  Flexible spending accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Accounts (HSA) can be used towards co-payments, deductibles (if applied) and services not covered by insurance.
