Dietetic therapy for children

Our team of dietitians are patient, understanding and will work with parents and caregivers to provide the best outcome for the child. We provide dietetic support to children, from infancy through to adolescence, who have challenges with eating and their diets, such as fussy eating, over or underweight concerns, or eating disorders.
Dietetic therapy for adults
We work closely with adults of all ages who need nutritional assistance and advice, such as difficulty swallowing food, social eating anxiety, or managing chronic health conditions.
Our Mobile Dietitian service
Our team of Dietitians can support people in their personal environments to help build skills in the settings they most need.
We can visit clients in their homes or communities, which can be especially helpful for people recently discharged from hospital, or with mobility or transport challenges.
In addition to our mobile Dietitian service, we can also arrange dietetic appointments at our Melbourne, Brisbane or Sydney centres. Our open and bright clinical spaces provide a safe and inviting environment in which one can receive support.
