What is a Dietitian?
Dietitians translate the science of nutrition into practical information about food. They work with people to promote nutritional wellbeing, prevent food-related problems and treat disease.
Dietitians work with all age groups who have special dietary requirements or those needing advice and education on nutrition.
Dietitians are eligible for membership of the Dietitians Association of Australia and to participate in the Accredited Practising Dietitians (APD) regulation and quality program.
All dietitians can call themselves 'nutritionists’ if they choose because they have University qualifications in nutrition. As well as being qualified to advise individuals and groups on nutrition-related matters, dietitians have the clinical training to modify diets to treat disease conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, renal disease, gastro-intestinal diseases and food allergy.
Jennie believes that well-being requires a holistic approach including a wide variety of nutritious foods, regular physical activity and a balanced lifestyle. "Sometimes in our hectic lifestyles it is easy to lose our direction and a little help and guidance is all that is needed to get us back on the right track," she says. "I get no greater pleasure than seeing my clients gain confidence, energy and greater enjoyment in their life."
Jennie’s clients are people who are concerned about their health and wellbeing and are seeking practical and effective nutrition, dietary and lifestyle solutions to assist with a range of health issues such as:
- Heart Disease
- Weight management
- Food intolerances
- Disordered Eating
- Family Heath
