ABOUT THE TEAM

At Healthy Hive, we understand that nurturing healthy habits from a young age sets the foundation for a lifetime of wellness. As founders of Healthy Hive, registered dietitians, and moms, we are committed to empowering families with the knowledge and tools they need to support their child's health through nutrition.

 

With a personalized approach tailored to each child's unique needs, we offer comprehensive nutrition counseling that addresses a range of concerns from picky eating to managing chronic conditions. Our goal is to make nutrition accessible, practical, and enjoyable for both children and their families while supporting growth, development, and overall well-being.

 

Whether you're seeking guidance on introducing solids, navigating food allergies, or optimizing nutrition for a growing child, Healthy Hive is here to partner with you every step of the way. Let's work together to cultivate a healthy future for your child.

Sarah Harris, RDN, LD

Co-founder of Healthy Hive, registered dietitian, wife and mom of 2. My mission is helping parents feed their kids better - with confidence. My approach is rooted in personalized and thorough nutrition care as every child is unique including how they interact with food.

 

With 15 years experience in child nutrition, I was well aware of the challenges of feeding kids well, but it wasn't until I had my own children that I fully understood how tough it could be. I was suddenly questioning everything I knew, and I saw so many mixed messages out there. Even other health professionals suggested things I knew were outdated nutrition guidelines, but still I questioned whether I was making the right choice for my child.

 

I stuck with my gut and went with the latest research, proven methods, and did what worked best for my family, and that's what I aim to share with my clients.  

 

In my spare time, I enjoy staying active with my husband and our two young girls. We can be found exploring one of Austin's many parks, trying out a new restaurant or hanging out at a brewery.

Lauren Eliasson, RDN, LD

Co-founder of Healthy Hive, registered dietitian, wife and mom of 2. With 12 years experience in child nutrition, I've learned that nothing can prepare you for feeding a child until you have your own.

My first born struggled with nutrition in a major way when she was born. Nourishing her was all I could think about as I found myself drowning in it all. Like many parents I work with, I was desperate to help her because it's no secret that good nutrition lays the foundation for a healthy future.

Sometimes, nourishing a child who is struggling with nutrition can be all-consuming. And sometimes, it takes asking for a little help to get through it. We finally found our groove, and now, it's my mission to help other struggling families do the same.

My approach is rooted in compassion, expertise, and collaboration with parents to find sustainable solutions for their trickiest nutrition challenges.

  • Do you accept insurance?
    Yes. Healthy Hive is in network with Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, UnitedHealthcare, Cigna, Sana, Superior HealthPlan and BCBS STAR, CHIP, STAR Kids, STAR Plus. Many patients pay zero dollars out of pocket, but insurance coverage varies, so we recommend calling the number on your insurance card and asking the following questions: ​ Do you reimburse for the following CPT codes in a telehealth setting: 97802, 97803. If so, how much do you cover? Please be very clear that it is a telehealth service as this may or may not affect your coverage. Do you reimburse for ICD-10 code Z71.3 (Dietary counseling and surveillance), or is a medical diagnosis required from a physician? If a medical diagnosis is required, we can provide you with a referral form to submit to your medical provider. ​ For out-of-network insurance coverage, Healthy Hive can provide a Superbill which you can submit for reimbursement. It is your responsibility to determine what your insurance covers and to make decisions accordingly. Payment for services must be paid to Healthy Hive at the time of booking. ​ Please contact us directly if you have any questions regarding this process.
  • Do you accept FSA or HSA?
    Yes! You are able to pay for our counseling services using your FSA or HSA card. However, it is your responsibility to verify if your FSA or HSA covers nutrition services. Oftentimes, nutrition counseling is covered, but a Letter of Medical Necessity (LMN) is required by a physician. Ultimately, you are responsible for any charges that are not covered by your FSA or HSA, so we recommend that you verify with your provider prior to booking a service.
  • Do you work with clients outside of TX?
    Yes! As telehealth providers we are able to offer services (mostly) anywhere. However, there are some states that require state licensure for a dietitian to practice there. Fortunately, we are able to work in many different states throughout the US. Currently, we welcome clients from the following states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming
  • Will my child be included in our sessions?
    We tailor every session to meet the unique needs of your family. Most often, we work with parents directly as the strategies we recommend are implemented by caregivers in the family - not the child. ​ Often times, discussing a child's eating habits in front of them can exacerbate whatever challenge they may be facing and can increase risk for poor body image and disordered eating. However, depending on the child's age and nutrition goals, we may work with the child if this is in their best interest. ​ Additionally, we believe that many children's nutrition challenges are best addressed with a whole family approach. While our main focus is children, we may make recommendations for other household members to help achieve the nutrition goals identified for the child.
  • Are we right for you?
    Our registered dietitian nutritionists work with people of all ages. While we specialize in family nutrition, we keep our doors open for anyone looking to live, feel and eat better. ​ The best way to determine if we're a good fit for you is to submit an inquiry on our homepage or schedule a discovery call to speak directly with one of our dietitians!
