Hi! It’s Noura!

A registered dietitian, a mom, and food-themed stuff lover!

Noura Sheikhalzoor, Canadian Registered Dietitian
Woman cooking

I have a big passion and energy for food, nutrition, and education.

I can’t believe that I completed 10 years as a dietitian in January, 2023. You know what my first job was? Yes, I was a teacher for little children!

I worked in many different settings as a dietitian. I worked (and still working) in research, in endocrinology, and in preventative health.

Since becoming a mom, I have turned to Google a lot to find good events or  community activities to get my kids busy learning, playing, making friends, staying away from screens and from whining about boredom.

As a mom, I totally get it when moms feel tired all the time and have no time to prepare activities for their children. I love Pinterest to collect all the ideas that between me and you, never get a time nor energy to recreate many of them.

Since being a mom, a teacher and a dietitian, I have been thinking about combining all that into Nourish with Noura Food Studio and Academy.

Kids learn in so many different ways, and I know that they like to use all senses in learning, and have fun and positive experiences. 

More About Me

My first job as a Registered Dietitian was at an endocrinologist’s office and my first client was a teenage girl with PCOS.

I came to nutrition and dietetics from my great love of science that started in childhood. I pursued my dream to become a Registered Dietitian after completing a BSc in Dietetics at the United Arab Emirates University, Dietitians Pre-Registration Program at Ryerson University, and an MSc in Nutrition at the University of Saskatchewan.

I also gained my Certified Diabetes Educator certificate from the Canadian Diabetes Educators Certification Board after my experience working with people with diabetes.

Learning new things and meeting new people are two things I enjoy. You guessed it: I’m an extrovert. I still get my introverted moments though. I love learning through reading and listening. Yes to books, blogs, and podcasts! And meeting people is now easier than ever via technology!

I am a mother of a boy and a girl. I learn a lot from them as they’re growing.
