Profile

Hi. I am a registered dietitian with over 10 years experience working within the NHS, abroad and in research. I offer services to women with a focus on gut health, maternal nutrition and weaning. My business Pod&Pea Nutrition is based in Exeter. I can offer individual consultations, group education including workshops, food festival talks and demos, staff health and wellbeing days, media copy and recipe/diet analysis.

I have an advanced certificate from Kings College London in the dietary management of IBS and the use of the FODMAP diet.

I have also completed further training in Cow’s Milk Allergy and meet the competencies set out by NICE and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health on the recognition, diagnosis and management of cow’s milk allergy.

Further to this I have a Sports Nutrition qualification from the SDA (Sports Dietitians Australia in Canberra).

I have always been passionate about food and love to cook  nutritious meals for my family and friends. Food is certainly fuel, but I believe eating well can also be enjoyable and needn’t take hours of your day to plan and cook. I’m a busy Mum of 2 children and love to be outdoors and exercising so for me food has to fit around my life and I can help you fit it ​into yours.

Services offered include:

  • gut health clinics
  • weaning workshops (you can even host one in your own home)
  • Intuitive Eating
  • individual consultations for pregnancy nutrition and fussy eating
  • Sports nutrition to improve your performance
  • Vegan and vegetarian diets
  • Sustainable eating

Please see website for full details of services or email me to enquire.
