Meet Ali, the Founder

Hi, I'm Ali Bandier.

I'm a Registered Dietitian with a Masters in Nutrition, a mom, and the Founder of Senta Heath. I specialize in prenatal, postnatal, and pediatric nutrition.

Using science-backed recommendations, I have helped thousands of families with their nutrition needs.
