The Travelling Dietitian
Vanessa McNamara graduated with a Masters in Nutrition & Dietetics from The University of Sydney in 2000.
Since then, she has been fortunate enough to combine her love of life, food and travel with a varied 20-year career as a dietitian. She has lived and worked in rural South Australia, throughout the United Kingdom, in the exciting Indian cities of Bangalore and Mumbai and now resides in the foodie metropolis, Singapore.
Vanessa now specialises in paediatric nutrition but also enjoys working with adults. She has a special interest in helping families to achieve a healthy lifestyle without sacrificing their enjoyment of food. Having her own children, including a fussy eater, has helped her to understand there are many challenges associated with feeding children but she believes that encouraging a positive relationship with food from a young age will prepare them for a healthy future.
