Want nutrition advice tailored to you or your child's needs?
With so much conflicting information it can be difficult to know how to best nourish yourself and your family. As a dietitian with nearly 20 years experience I've supported hundreds of families with nutrition challenges, to find peace with food whilst nurturing a positive body image.
I’ve worked with such a variety of people over the years and helped with:
The fussy eater who will only eat 5 foods (yes only 5 in total!)
The Mum who wants to manage her child's allergy or food intolerance in a way that still enables him to feel good about eating.
The child with ASD and sensory processing issues who will only eat white foods.
The dad who wants to look at his own relationship with food so he can support his child to enjoy eating.
The mum who has had a baby and wants to feel good about her body.
The parents who are desperately worried about their child as he will not eat any fruits or veggies.
Some health insurance policies provide cover for dietetic consultation or treatment. Please check with your insurer. Some ACC claims allow for dietetic input. You should discuss this possibility with your assessment team or caseworker.
At The Food Tree we see health as incorporating both our physical and mental health. Which is why we adopt a holistic approach using current research-based information & proven psychological approaches to support our clients. Together we’ll create a personalised plan to help you and your family make sustainable health and lifestyle changes.
As a mum of two young girls I understand the challenges in wanting the best nutrition for your child and to support them to eat well. I also understand how important it is to explore my own relationship with food and my body image to ensure I am the best role model I can be for my children. I have the skills, knowledge and experience to support you with both.
We use a non-diet approach, the latest evidence, along with psychological, motivational and mindfulness-based techniques to support you and your family to feel well and enjoy a wide range of foods. Our personal consultations include a nutritional assessment to give you peace of mind and online resources to support you in way that suits your needs.
