What’s your food frustration?

Perhaps you have a child who eats everything and anything or maybe you have a fussy eater?
Are you unsure how to introduce solid foods to your baby?
Does your child have a medical condition, food allergies or intolerances that make it that little bit more challenging at meal times?
Do you want pleasant mealtimes without the battles and arguments?
Do you need help making healthier food choices for your family?
You’ve come to the right place!  Whatever your family food challenge, you will find a wealth of information and support with Kids Dig Food.

At a Kids Dig Food dietetics consultation you can expect:

  • Empathy and understanding, because we know that asking for help can be tough
  • Nutrition problem identification
  • Assessment and analysis of your child and family’s eating patterns
  • Problem solving with YOU to find practical solutions to suit your family
  • A personalised plan
  • Friendly, positive and practical support to get things on track

See a Dietitian in your home

No need to drag your toddler to another appointment. We make it easy – see the dietitian who comes to you! Appointments are conducted in your home, workplace or even the local café at a time convenient for you. 

Deb conducts a mobile dietetics service to North Brisbane suburbs on Wednesdays. Additional fees apply if you are located outside our home visiting area to account for travel time and fuel costs.

“Home visits are great for families. I can gather much richer information about your food and mealtime challenges when seated at YOUR family table. Many families find this a much more convenient option when juggling the needs of young children.”

Deb Blakley, Accredited Practising Dietitian
