Your NDIS expert


There are so many moving parts to a healthy life. I think nutrition is a big one of them. When we eat the right food, our bodies and minds work better. But how do you know you’re getting the right nutrition? Well, I’m no expert, but a nutritionist is. They can work with your child to help with things like food allergies, meal planning on a budget, food texture modification and weight management.

Let’s chat a little more about how dieticians can assist with smashing through those NDIS goals:

1. Navigating Food Allergies: Whether it's a mild intolerance or a more severe allergy, a dietician will guide you through identifying trigger foods and suggesting alternatives to ensure your child's health is always a priority.

2. Meal Planning Mastery: Ever scratched your head thinking about what to cook? A dietician can help plan meals that are nutritious, tasty, and tailored to your family's needs. Plus, they can give advice on how to do it all within your budget.

3. Texture Transformations: Some kids can be super picky about food textures. If your child has issues with swallowing or chewing, a dietician can suggest texture modifications to make meals more manageable and enjoyable.

4. Keeping a Healthy Weight: Childhood obesity is on the rise, and it can be challenging to navigate. A dietician can provide tools and strategies for weight management, ensuring your child remains active and healthy.

5. Digestive Well-being: For children who have issues with digestion or gut health, a dietician can provide invaluable support, making sure their diet supports a healthy digestive system.

6. Picky Eater Solutions: If you've got a fussy eater in the house, a dietician can offer strategies to introduce new foods and make mealtime less of a battlefield.

7. Education and Empowerment: It's not just about what to eat; it's about understanding why. Dieticians can educate both parents and children, empowering you to make informed decisions about nutrition.

8. Collaboration with Other Professionals: Sometimes, nutrition intersects with other areas of health. A dietician can collaborate with other professionals, like speech therapists or occupational therapists, ensuring a holistic approach to your child's wellbeing.

Nutrition is a cornerstone of good health, and with the right guidance, you can ensure your child gets the best start in life. If you're eligible under the NDIS, accessing dietician services can be a game-changer in your family's health journey.

While I've put my heart into aligning these tips with your NDIS path, the road can have its twists. Remember, these are just suggestions. Dive in, explore, and find what truly works for you. Sending you all my best vibes!
