About Paediatric Nutrition

I moved to Abu Dhabi in April 2023 with my husband and two children. I have 20 years' experience as a UK registered paediatric dietitian and have worked in several large hospitals in the UK. Throughout my career I have supported many children and their families with a range of feeding problems.   

I have expertise in the following areas:

  • Infant feeding

  • Weaning

  • Fussy eating

  • Constipation 

  • Toddler diarrhoea.

  • Faltering growth

  • Autism

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).
