Nicole loves food! When she finds herself with spare time she loves cooking with her children and throwing dinner parties for friends and family. Her passion for food (and eating) is what led Nicole to become a Dietitian.
Nicole completed 5 years of university to become an Accredited Practising Dietitian and Accredited Nutritionist. She gained experience working at Caulfield Community Health Service and Bentleigh Bayside Community Health Centre before founding Best Food Forward in 2007.
Nicole has a special interest in helping women maintain a healthy diet during pregnancy. Between exhaustion, nausea, hunger and confusion from information overload, pregnancy can be a challenging time to eat well. Nicole can help women with practical advice during this tough time.
In addition, Nicole has over 10 years experience as a dietitian providing advice for people with chronic illness such as;
- Coeliac Disease
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- High cholesterol
- High blood pressure
Whether you’ve just been diagnosed or had the condition for a while and feel you could benefit from a dietary update, Nicole can help.
- Weight management
If, like many others, you’ve tried several diets in an effort to lose weight you might want to learn more about a non-diet approach to weight management. Nicole can help you achieve and maintain a healthier weight without following a strict diet and still enjoying the food you love.
