Profile for Sarah Almond Bushell, BDA Registered Dietitian

My name is Sarah and I am a Registered Dietitian, Children’s Nutritionist & baby weaning expert.  

I help mums with weaning by giving them clarity through the minefield of information, so they know exactly what to do helping them feel confident and inspired. I do this by writing blogs, delivering an online weaning course, developing recipes, creating videos’ and selling weaning guides. I also offer a small number of virtual 1:1 appointments.

I’m also an Advanced SOS trained Feeding Therapist and so also support mums of toddlers mend their mealtime battles by helping them problem solve their toddlers food and feeding behaviour and inspire them with meal plans and recipes so that they nurture kids who have a healthy relationship with food. I do this via my membership programme called the Happy healthy Eaters Club and via 1:1 virtual appointments.

I bring over 21 years of experience in nutrition & dietetics in both the NHS and private practice.
