Welcome to my-dietician.co.za!

DSC_0141As a dietician, I strongly believe that healthy eating is for the whole family and I invite you, along with my clients and patients, to browse through this site for healthy recipes and novel ideas for kids..

My special interest in the diverse field of dietetics lies in the reduction of childhood and teen obesity. Practicing from a paediatrician’s rooms, I have found myself addressing the problem of childhood obesity on a regular basis.  Childhood obesity has been described by the World Health Organisation as “one of the most serious public health challenges of the 21st century”.  I believe that a child’s health cannot be addressed without assessing the family’s health and attitude towards food and therefore family counseling is the most effective approach to combating childhood obesity.

I currently practice at Westville Hospital and the Highway Diabetes Centre (Centenary Medical Centre, Hillcrest)
