How I Can Help

Do you have an unsettled baby?  Or do you have a baby or child that has allergies or intolerances that you need help to identify?  Or you have a diagnosis but need more support with your child’s diet?   Or are you a complex care company or solicitor looking for assessment of a complex client?.

Food Allergies

I take an allergy focussed history to determine if the cause is a food allergen and give advice on diet for mum (if breast-feeding) and/or for baby during weaning.  If your baby is formula fed, I can advise your GP on the most appropriate formula choice.  I can also advise onward referral to an allergy consultant if required. 

Weaning your baby is more difficult when they have allergies, and I can give you confidence to.  I can also give advice on the re-introduction process at a later date as most babies outgrow food allergies.  I can help with older children too.

I have vast experience of dealing with cows’ milk protein allergy in babies and children and also in a wide variety of children’s allergies (please see areas of expertise for more details).  I currently work in an NHS specialist allergy service when I am not doing private work.

Food Intolerances

I can help with conditions such as Coeliac disease.  It is essential to follow a gluten-free diet for life for optimum health and growth and I can give you the skills to do this.  I also have experience in conditions such as fructose intolerance and I am also FODMAP trained (Monash University Australia 2019) and can therefore help with IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome).

Complex Care

I work with complex care companies to provide excellent quality nutritional care to children with complex needs.  I am competent dealing with enteral feed issues such as poor tolerance and I have also worked with a number of parents to implement blended diet in children on a gastrostomy feed.    I have worked closely with families to avoid tube feeding by providing advice to carers and parents on how to maximise the nutritional quality of the oral diet when this is in the best interests of the child.

I believe passionately that children with disability deserve the best nutritional care and deserve to have the same chances in life and achieve optimum health as much as children without disabilities.
