WHAT IS AN ACCREDITED PRACTISING DIETITIAN?
Accredited Practising Dietitians (APDs) are university-qualified professionals that undertake ongoing training and education programs to ensure that they are your most up-to-date and credible source of nutrition information.
WHAT DOES AN ACCREDITED PRACTISING DIETITIAN DO?
APDs help treat a wide range of conditions including diabetes, heart disease, cancers, gastrointestinal diseases, food allergies, food intolerance’s, disordered eating as well as overweight and obesity. When it comes to food and nutrition, dietitians are the trained experts. We like to think of our dietitians as nutritional scientists, who translate scientific research into practical advice with a focus on real, wholefoods. Most people think of a dietitian as someone who concentrates on just weight loss, however this is not the case at all! Dietitians provide expert advice for people of all ages, in all stages of health. With experience in a range of conditions, as well as a special understanding when it comes to people living with a disability, they can provide real reliable advice and equip you with the knowledge and skills to take control of your own health.
HOW CAN WE HELP?
We understand that everyone has different needs and priorities when it comes to their health and that’s why we offer a range of options when it comes to getting in touch with a dietitian for support.
This is where a dietitian will sit down with you face-to-face or over the phone to have a bit of a chat. Together, you develop an individualised plan that considers your aims, mental and physical conditions, eating patterns, culture and budget. Remember - we are a mobile service, so we come to you!
Group Education & Nutrition Presentations
Looking for a fun and engaging environment where you can learn all things nutrition, then maybe this is for you. Group settings can be a great way for carers, family members or anyone else interested in nutrition to increase their confidence and skills when it comes to supporting others or even their own health goals.
Menu Reviews & Recipe Modification
We acknowledge the diverse living circumstances and background that everyone comes from. Perhaps you receive meal support in a group home, or even want some simple tips on how to make your go-to meals healthier - either way, we can assist.
