Maintaining professional development is very important to Charlotte. She regularly attends conferences, courses and training to keep up to date with the current science behind nutrition. Recent training includes behaviour change, a critical skill in helping people to improve eating behaviour and adapt their dietary behaviours.

Charlotte’s experience in child nutrition includes researching and working with school nutrition and the guidelines around the new school meals. She has expert knowledge in the area of healthy eating for weight loss and she works on a one to one basis with overweight and obese children, adults and families, to help them achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

As a nutritionist, Charlotte understand that life creates many barriers to consuming a healthy diet and sometimes we all need a helping hand to try and decipher the correct information from the diet myths that are out there.

Charlotte’s favourite quote;

“We do not eat nutrients. We eat food” (Barasi, M.E. 2003) Charlotte says I truly believe that people’s health and lifestyles could often be improved easily by making small, sustainable changes to their dietary intakes and food behaviours.
