Nutrition Consultations are conducted in two main types:

1) Initial Assessment. Initial consultations are ideal if you are looking to improve your diet, lose weight, manage any particular health conditions or food allergies, check that you are eating right according to your needs, as well as many other purposes. These initial sessions involve extensive information gathering about your medical history, symptoms, diet history and other key areas. This is so that our dietitian can form a comprehensive understanding about your condition, your body and your diet so that she can make adjustments to suit your individual requirements. These sessions are focused data collection, however they incorporate goal setting and basic nutrition education. Initial sessions generally run anywhere from 60-90 minutes and cost $130.00. NOTE: You may be eligible for a rebate for a portion of this cost, contact us for more information.

2) Review (Follow-Up). Review consultations are generally the sessions that run after you have had your initial assessment from the dietitian. These sessions involve helping you achieve your goals by analysing your overall diet and health, and discussing nutritional options that will help guide you on your journey to a healthier lifestyle. These sessions are shorter in duration than the initial session, and involve less data collection and more tailored nutritional education. These sessions cost $70.00 and run from 30-45 minutes.

We also offer targeted consultations for individuals and families, and provide print-outs of any information we discuss with you.

Our Healthy Eating Program is offered as either a 5-session (shortened) program or a 12-session (extended) program. Sessions vary in duration from 30 minutes to 60 minutes. Each of these sessions also vary in cost, with discounts for upfront payments. Topics are varied by session and include eating guidelines, shopping tips, food label reading, food portion control, and tips for eating out. Contact us for more information and download our Price List for more details regarding prices.

NOTE: Prices for the initial sessions (Session 1) reflect the cost for a single adult. Accompanying children in the Healthy Eating Program are free, however additional adults (16 years and older) will cost an additional 50% of the Session 1 cost and will run for an extended duration. This is because the initial sessions incorporate extensive background data collection from each participant and guidelines are individualised per person.

If you would like to arrange a group Healthy Eating Program, that can also be arranged. Contact us for more information.

This service is available for all current patients, once an initial consultation has been conducted with the dietitian.

The dietitian will meet you at your choice of supermarket within the Penrith area. From there, the dietitian will help you work your way through your shopping list to make some healthier meal selections and snack options.

This service is beneficial if you would like a hands-on approach to planning your meals and making healthier selections. You will gain knowledge in label reading (nutrition panels and ingredients lists), and will also be guided towards improving the nutritional value of meals that you currently include on a regular basis.
