Clare is a passionate Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD). She loves empowering people with good nutrition information so they can make the best decisions for their long-term health. She is able to help you with a broad range of nutrition concerns from managing diabetes or cardiovascular disease to gastrointestinal complaints and discomfort. She loves food and the role that it plays in our lives, both as a provider of nutrients and as an expression of our social and cultural environments. It was this interest that ultimately drew her to the study of food and it’s impact on our bodies. While studying she also discovered a passion for understanding the role of nutrition in the prevention and management of disease.

The Healthy Eating Clinic is Canberra’s premium of nutrition professionals. We’re genuinely interested in teaching you how to eat well long term, but you can’t change your eating habits in one hour! We focus on building healthy behaviours into your lifestyle, rather than offering you a quick fix. To do this we recommend a series of appointments. This way, we set you up to become a long term healthy eater and achieve your goals.
