What is a dietitian?

A dietitian uses their expert knowledge of nutrition to educate clients on the relationship between food and health. Whether you require assistance managing your weight or training for an event, a dietitian has the expertise required to help.

Our dietitian service

At Leap Health our dietitian service is practical and fun! We offer a tailored consultation service that will assist you to achieve the best health results possible.

  • Dietary therapy to assist in the management of specific medical conditions (eg low FODMAP diet for IBS)
  • Eating plans and recipe manipulation
  • Dietary management plans to optimise sporting performance or post surgery/injury rehabilitation
  • Label reading – learn what to look for and how to compare products
