Hi, I’m Emma. I’m a Paediatric Dietitian and also the Mum who has lived through allergies and fussy eating. 

I provide private consultations and nutritional assessments for children with dietary problems and support parents who are concerned about their child’s nutritional health. 

Since graduating with a first class honours degree in Dietetics and Nutrition, I have been working as a Dietitian. I currently work as a Dietitian for the NHS, focusing on children’s health. I help children and their families overcome a broad range of dietary issues and I’m proud to also bring this professional experience to my private clinic.

Mum of a fussy eater and a baby with allergies

My daughter Olivia had severe reflux as a baby and went on to suffer from several food allergies. I fully understand the feeling of despair that so many other parents experience. I saw Olivia arching her back in pain and screaming as she struggled with reflux. She developed rashes from an egg allergy and also spent time in hospital as a result of her cow’s milk allergy.

My training as a Dietitian has helped us manage Olivia’s dietary needs enormously. We made carefully considered changes to her diet and she is now a completely different girl! She is still a ‘fussy eater’ but my ‘Dietitian toolkit’ means that I have lots of tricks up my sleeve to make sure she gets all the nutrition she needs as she’s growing up.

As a parent, I fully understand the practical implications of all the advice I provide and I believe in an intuitive and mindful eating approach.

I know what works and how to help your family.
