Dietetics

We support people of all ages to learn more about food, nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices.

Our dietitians can provide support and advice about:

  • Building a health relationship with food and your body
  • Achieving good health by eating a varied and enjoyable diet
  • Being a healthy weight for you
  • Food allergies or intolerances
  • Food shopping and meal planning
  • Preparing low cost, healthy meals
  • Healthy cooking and recipes ideas
  • How to prevent or manage a health condition, such as diabetes, high cholesterol or gastro intestinal issues
  • Nutrition advice for older people – e.g. malnutrition
  • What to eat during pregnancy to ensure good health for the mother and baby
  • Eating well to support good mental health
  • Food for babies and children, including how much to give.

The dietitians offer individual appointments and group presentations. They can work with you to develop an eating plan to suit your needs and provide dietary education to help you make healthy food choices. Home visits are available for eligible clients.
