Hi! My name is Hannah and I’m Accredited Practising Dietitian/Nutritionist in Adelaide, South Australia. I have qualifications in both Nutrition & Dietetics and Visual Arts and I’m always looking for ways to combine the two!
My mission is to creatively cultivate healthy relationships between people, food and the environment.
The Community Dietitian is a way for me to share the projects and services I’m involved in, and create and opportunity to connect. It’s also a platform for my blog, which cuts through confusing and conflicting nutrition messages in the media. I write from a professional and evidence-based background, while acknowledging that sometimes the best advice isn’t backed up by research – yet. My articles translate the science into simple and practical conclusions in down-to-earth language that everyone will understand.
Good food is more than the sum of its nutrients and good health is more than what we eat. Good food nourishes the body, mind, and soul. It is the centrepiece of social and family relationships. It supports sustainable farming, fishing, and industry practises. Producers get paid fairly for it. The impacts of good food reach far and wide. Your wellbeing relies on a healthy food system, and a healthy food system also relies on you.
Nutrition shouldn’t be complicated. It usually just boils down to eating more whole foods and plant foods!
PLEASE NOTE: Medical conditions require individual dietary advice from an Accredited Practising Dietitian.

When finding a nutrition professional, look for the orange logo. It means we’ve studied either a four-year Bachelor of two-year Masters degree at an accredited university in Australia, and are a member of the Dietitians Association of Australia. Our degree involves a lot of physiology, biochemistry and evidence-based science so we’ve got a good foundation to work from. We won’t know all the answers to every single question about food & nutrition, but we know where to find the correct information and we’ll work with you to find the right food for YOU.
