Kids and Families

As parents and dietitians, we know that feeding your family and meeting the nutritional needs of young people can be challenging. We have the skills and experience in working with families to manage a wide range of nutritional conditions from general healthy eating to growth failure.

Gut Health and IBS

Diet and gut health have become a popular topic of discussion, our dietitians stay up to date with the most recent research and can help you wade through all the information out there. We can assist in the management of irritable bowel syndrome including proper use of the low FODMAP diet.

Aged Care and Menu Reviews

Our nutritional needs change as we get older and having a dietitian as a part of your health team can help to prevent nutrient deficiencies and malnutrition. We work closely with aged care facilities to ensure proper nutrition is available to residents through detailed menu review and analysis.

Chronic and Immune Conditions

Chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer & heart disease among others can compromise immunity and require specialist nutritional advice to manage these properly. Our dietitians can help you sort fact from fiction and create an individual nutrition plan to target your individual needs.

Fussy Eating

Fussy and problem eating are one of the most common nutrition complaints in parents of young children as it is often difficult to manage and can leave parents frustrated. Our dietitians have experience with fussy eaters themselves and work closely with families to increase food acceptance.

Allergies and Intolerances

Allow us to work with you to diagnose food intolerances and allergies and assist you in improving symptoms and removing allergens from your diet for the long term while meeting your nutritional needs.

We are few weeks into the school year now with parents already likely feeling a little uninspired when it comes to kids lunchboxes. Give our lunchbox guide a read, it includes a great visual guide of our favourite packaged snack foods, which we know is what parents really want to see!

Comparison of Omega-3 Fats in Tuna...
Omega-3 fatty acids are a "healthy fat" and have wide-ranging functions in the body’s cardiovascular, pulmonary, immune, and endocrine systems and are a key component of an anti-inflammatory diet. Our body cannot produce these fats by itself so we need to consume an adequate amount daily. For men over 160mg/day and for women over 90mg per day is considered adequate.

Fish is considered an excellent source of omega-3, with many people opting for tinned varieties it is important to choose the brand with the most amount of long chain Omega-3's (EPA & DHA). We have compared tuna in oil varieties as the olive and sunflower oil blends contain more healthy fats than those in Springwater or brine.

Coles brand, Greenseas and Woolworths Brand contain a significantly higher amount of Omega-3's than that of Sirena or John West (Widely the most popular brand) with over twice as much omega-3's!
It is interesting to note the brands with the higher price tag do not always stack up nutritionally!

You might think all brands of plain Greek yoghurt would nutritionally be the same, however this is not the case.

For example, Jalna Greek has a higher fat content, lowering its protein content significantly per serve while Chobani Greek has a lower fat content and a higher amount of protein per serve, more than double the amount of Jalna.

It depends on your goals as to which is the better choice for you:
-If your goal is weight gain or you have a high energy requirement the Jalna may be a better choice due to the higher kJ value of fat.
-If you are choosing Greek yoghurt as a high protein snack for muscle gain/maintenance or exercise recovery, the Chobani may be the best option for you.

Choosing the option you like the flavour of is always best as fitting foods you don't enjoy into your regular food intake is usually short-lived and you won't stick to it in the long term!
