What to expect from our dietitians?
Claudine and Salome provide professional evidence-based nutrition advice for adults and children, based on their specific nutritional and health needs. There are many unscientific health and nutrition publications and fad diets around. If you consult a registered dietitian you are protected from misleading treatments and misinformation.
Their approach is goal and results driven to ensure that their clients achieve their personal health-, weight- and lifestyle goals. Each consultation includes an individual assessment and personalized advice since there is no 'blueprint' diet that will work for everyone.
