Fiona Nave

Paediatric Dietitian

Fiona has worked as a clinical Dietitian in the UK and in Australia over the last 18 years.  With a passion for normalising healthy eating, Fiona has worked with children and their parents to help families take steps towards healthier options and meals that work for the whole family.  Fiona is particularly passionate about working with children with restrictive diets that may be due to sensory or physical delays.

Fiona graduated with a Masters in Nutrition and Dietetics from Griffith University in 2002 and also has a Bachelor of Applied Science (Food Science and Nutrition) and an Arts degree (psychology) from the University of Queensland.  She is an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD).  As a mother of two young children and as an experienced Dietitian, Fiona has a particular interest in helping children with weaning, feeding developmental and behavioural difficulties.

Fiona recognises that eating well is not as simple as just buying groceries.  Many families are torn between healthy eating and the realities of juggling work, family, extended family, school, sporting commitments and community commitments alongside preparing food.  Fiona will work with you to ensure your child is receiving adequate nutrition to ensure optimal growth and development.  She will support you and your child to expand diet variety and help to increase confidence in experimenting with new foods, and enjoying meal times together.
