Hello, I'm Kristy. I'm a qualified Nutritional Therapist and first-time mother. My mission is to use the latest evidence-based nutrition to guide and help you to support you and your family. I have a special focus on nutrition for women for pregnancy and onwards, infants and children (including introducing babies to solids, allergies and fussy eaters).
After many years trying to juggle a demanding job in central London and a life outside, I no longer had the drive I once had and felt completely exhausted. Instead of turning up the volume, as I always did, I decided to take a step back and look at what I could do to get back to my old self. I grew up in a very sporty family, with two brothers and a mother who always cooked homemade food. I went back to basics and became fascinated with how nutrition and physical activity can support wellbeing. It was through diet that I gradually started to gain energy, felt more focused than ever and regained that feeling of wellbeing. Nutrition fascinated me so much that I set about changing career and after three years of study (at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London), a wedding and a baby, I qualified as a Nutritional Therapist. Since then, I have completed additional training in Children's Nutrition.
My belief is that with the right information and willingness, positive changes in diet and lifestyle can support our health and wellbeing.
