The Dietitian understands that each one of us has a unique and varied relationship with food. She also understands that there are many factors that influence the food choices we make and takes those into consideration when discussing your dietary needs with you. 

Accredited Practising Dietitians are the gold standard in Australia as neither ‘Dietitian’ or ‘Nutritionist’ are protected or regulated.
