Nutritionists hold a comprehensive knowledge of the science behind what we eat and how our food and the nutrients it contains are absorbed and used by our body. They work with veterans and NDIS participants to promote wellbeing and independence through all stages of life, and are an integral part of a holistic approach to overall health. Your nutritionists will help you address any health or nutritional concerns you may have by assessing your current health and nutritional status, working with you and your family to set realistic and achievable goals, and devising a treatment plan to enrich the quality of your diet – and your life.
Proactive nutritionists are supported and encouraged to regularly participate in additional specialised training and professional development, allowing them to interpret the latest research and extract the ‘facts from the fiction’ so you can be reassured the advice you receive is up-to-date and informed by scientific evidence. By combining the science of nutrition with their knowledge around shopping and cooking, they will work to give you personalised advice that is both easy to understand and follow.

No, a nutritionist works with you to make a series of small changes over a period of time. They may even ask you to try only one thing per week. It is important to make sure you tell your nutritionist if you are having trouble implementing a change as they can provide you with the support to make healthy choices easier choices.
Our supportive nutritionists work closely alongside family members and support people for veterans and NDIS participants, recognising that they often play a key role in helping these clients work towards their health goals.

Your nutritionist works closely with you to create sustainable recommendations that you can enjoy. As nutrients come in many forms and from many different sources, if you’re struggling with any parts of your plan, simply let your nutritionist know.
