Registered Nutritionist, BSc (Hons) Food & Human Nutrition
I’m a Registered Nutritionist and a member of the Association for Nutrition and the Nutrition Society. I completed my degree in Food and Human Nutrition at Newcastle University, which is accredited by the Association for Nutrition. I then spent 7 years working for a leading infant nutrition company, gaining in-depth experience in infant and toddler nutrition, maternal nutrition and milk allergy and intolerance.
After becoming a mum myself, I decided to take the knowledge and experience that I’ve gained from my previous work and my journey with my own children, and share it with others. I’m passionate about empowering individuals and families to achieve optimum health outcomes through nutrition at every stage of life. Using my knowledge of the science behind food and nutrition and my experience as a mum, I would like the opportunity to help you make the right food choices and create healthy eating habits for yourself and your family.
