Brooke is an approachable nutrition therapist with over a decade of experience in infant and child nutrition and metabolism conditions.
Brooke is passionate about giving children the best chance for health over the course of their life and believes that excellent early life nutrition is key for this. She understands that some members of the community have trouble accessing nutrition because of developmental conditions, disabilities and delayed skill development. Brooke has an indepth knowledge of the development of eating processes and skill development, the reasons behind food choices and optimising eating environments; so can help parents and children work towards making positive changes to their nutrition intake. Brooke is an SOS Feeding Therapist, but recognises this is not suitable for all clients so incorporates multiple approaches into her therapy design including Responsive Feeding Therapy and food chaining.
In more recent times Brooke has enjoyed teaching and passing on her feeding therapy methods to the newer Family Dietetics team members. This has allowed her practice to expand and ultimately help more learn how to love and access more foods.
