Nutrition and Dietetics at Advantage Healthcare is about much more than just food. Healthy eating is the cornerstone of a healthy life and a healthy body
Advantage Nutrition and Dietitian
Food is so much more than fuel for your body. It also plays an important part in our social and emotional wellbeing. It is vitally important to us, as Dietitians, that you get enjoyment from food. We are committed to helping you learn about food and how to incorporate healthy eating habits for health, wellbeing, and pleasure.
When developing a healthy eating plan, we recognise the importance of choosing a plan that suits you. We know that everyone is different, so a "one size fits all" approach probably won't work for you. We are committed to providing you with strategies that suit your food preferences, health concerns, and lifestyle. Most importantly, we will be there for you when you need ongoing support and motivation.
All Nutrition staff at Advantage Healthcare are Accredited Practicing Dietitians (APD). This means they have undergone additional training on top of their undergraduate university qualification and are recognised by the DAA (Dietitians Association of Australia), Medicare, Veteranís Affairs and Health Funds.
