About me 

I have 20 years' experience as a UK registered paediatric dietitian, working in several large hospitals in the UK and have supported many children and their families with a range of feeding problems.  I have a special interest in food allergy having worked as a Clinical Research Dietitian on the LEAP study (Learning Early About Peanut Allergy).   I recently attended the 3rd Emirates Allergy & Clinical Immunology Conference as speaker delivering a talk on cow's milk protein allergy specialist formulas and plant-based milks. 

I also have a keen interest in fussy/selective eating including those with paediatric feeding problems, and sensory issues with food. This interest led me to train as an SOS Feeding Therapist (Sequential Oral Sensory).

Mastering Milk Allergy Package

Colic-type symptoms, eczema and itching, reflux, unusual stools, tummy pain and constipation, are usually experienced by most infants in the first year of life and tend to resolve in time. These symptoms can also be a sign of a delayed cow's milk protein allergy.

Personalised Picky Eater Package

This package is for parents who already have a picky eater. Unlike many online fussy eating programmes, this package is personalised specifically for your child and family.    Picky eating causes a lot of stress and worry for parents. Understanding the reasons behind it, such as sensory issues, texture aversion, feeding skill deficits, or simply preference, can help address it effectively.  This course will teach you how to change your approach and implement strategies to help improve your child's eating.

'My son is 3 years old and was eating extremely limited foods and had poor weight gain. Tammy is extremely supportive to not only my son but also to myself explaining exactly why he has problems eating and additionally, reassuring that it is not our fault as parents.  He has come so far already, desensitising to some foods and becoming more accepting to developing his range of foods although we still have a long way to go'.

What is great about Tammy is that she takes the time to break everything down and explains everything so clearly to try and reduce the stress for both parent and child.

'Tammy helped us manage the dairy free diet which really took the pressure off. Developing a routine helped us break the grazing cycle which has increased the amount she eats, to the point that she knows when it is time to eat. Her weight has also improved.'
