Dietitian Information

We are lucky enough to have NZ Registered Dietitians, trained in providing personalised nutrition advice to suit your lifestyle and to help you reach your goals.

Food is a part of our everyday lives, and as a dietitians we embrace this fully. We should be able to eat without restriction, enjoying foods and drinks as part of life's journey. Eating nourishing food is not as easy as it used to be for a lot of people. We face challenges with regards to food prices, food availability and our individual preferences that are influenced by not only taste or texture, but food production sustainability and ethical factors. Not only this, today we contend with a great deal of confusion around what foods and drinks are actually health promoting and vice versa.
 

Why is changing the way we engage with food so hard?

We understand that while having a sound knowledge of food composition is a good thing, it is not the be all and end all of a healthy diet. The things we do everyday, for whatever reason, when it comes to food, matters. Changing food behaviour is a slow and difficult process for some people. Forming new habits takes time. Our job is to guide you not only to understand food composition to a level that you can make informed choices, but to inspire you and keep you moving toward your goal.

These days, it's more difficult than ever to navigate the constantly changing food landscape. Everyone has an opinion on what you should or shouldn't eat/drink, and this concept is in your face on the internet and social media. It can be exhausting and utterly confusing to know what is best for you.

We offer one on one consultations, and group classes throughout the year. Keep an eye on this website for class schedules.

Payment Options

If you have a disability allowance and would like to see the dietitian, you can ask your GP at one of your regular appointments to apply to WINZ to have your disability allowance adjusted to reflect this. This means your dietitian visits can be covered by WINZ if the GP considers them beneficial to your ongoing care.
 

Automatic payments can be set up and accounts paid off at as little as $5 per week.
 

After you get the ball rolling, seeing the dietitian every 1, 2 or 3 months may be all that is needed to stay on top of changes.
