A dietitian is a university-trained health professional who can interpret and translate nutritional science into practical advice. Dietitians can assist you to develop a good relationship with food and support you in the dietary management of a range of health and wellbeing related issues including, but not limited to, weight management, diabetes, heart disease, irritable bowel disease, allergies and intolerances.
Dietitians can also assist you in meal planning, recipe modification and meal ideas that suit your lifestyle and time constraints. We take out the guesswork, and prescribe food as medicine, to get you performing at your best.
Lauren is an Accredited Practising Dietitian who endeavours to empower people in her local community to help them live a healthy and nourishing life.
