Danielle

Danielle - Dietitian

Hi! I’m Danielle, an accredited practicing dietitian and paediatric dietitian. Before working as a dietitian, I was a primary school teacher. As a teacher, I naturally gravitate to providing people with the information they need in order to make better food and lifestyle choices. I love seeing my patients learn and grow into people full of nutrition knowledge and able to make amazing nutrition choices for themselves, it truly is empowering!

I work with lots of families (kids and adolescents), tackling their fussy eating kids and working with other nutrition concerns, such as juvenile arthritis, Ehlers Danlos syndrome, failure to thrive, allergies and intolerances, weight management, vitamin and mineral deficiencies and much more! My approach is one that works with your usual life, just altering to make a positive impact of the nutrition of your little one. The best feeling in the world is helping a little one feel better with food and then seeing the whole family adopt a healthier approach to food!

I am passionate about making sure you still eat what you want to eat, but finding a way to do this and still make sure you are managing your health to the best of your ability. Personally, I am a terrible cook (although I can bake!) so if you need quick and easy meal ideas that don’t take hours in the kitchen then I am your girl!
