Francisca comes from a large family, so food has always been an integral part of her life. 

In her final year of study for a Bachelor of Science, Francisca decided that her passion was to help people learn about ways to improve their health through food and nutrition. She then completed her honours degree in Food and Nutrition Science, followed by her Master’s degree in Nutrition and Dietetics.

As a dietitian, Francisca takes pride in tailoring her advice to suit each individual, to ensure a sustainable change in all aspects of their life. She loves being part of her clients' journey into becoming the best version of themselves. 

Francisca can help you with meal preparation ideas, healthy snack options, cooking modifications to fit your nutritional needs, choosing the right supplements for fertility and pregnancy, and more!

Services Offered

Nutrition for Fertility Management and Pregnant Women

The lack of proper nutritional support for women trying to conceive, as well as expecting mothers, has driven Francisca to set up a program that can combat the misinformation about food choices out there.

When trying to conceive, it is crucial to prepare your body nutritionally, and well-researched nutrition is going to play an important role in helping frustrated couples become pregnant.

Your nutritional status has a significant impact on your pregnancy, your child’s health, and their ability to function and develop. If you’re pregnant, Francisca can help you stay well-nourished and help you have a better pregnancy. 

In your initial consultation, Francisca will come up with a plan to help you and your partner reach your goals and discuss your:

  • Health history
  • Nutritional status
  • Medication regimen
  • Dietary intake
  • Fears and barriers to growing a family

Following your consultation with Francisca, she will provide you with a nutritional and supplement plan.

Chronic Disease

In 2011, chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease accounted for 90% of all deaths in Australia, according to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.  

At Sustainable Nutrition, Francisca understands the risk factors associated with these chronic diseases and believes that nutrition can be integrated into prevention and care to maintain long-term health.

Gut Health

Do you have bloating, cramps, constipation, or diarrhoea? Dietitians at Sustainable Nutrition understand the importance of gut health to overall health and wellbeing.

They specialise in:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Food intolerance 
  • Coeliac Disease
  • Ulcerative Colitis 
  • Crohn’s Disease 
Eating Disorders

As eating disorders continue to rise, more people are experiencing dietary challenges, weight problems, and body image issues.
