Jo Travers offers a professional, confidential, evidenced-based nutrition service in London. She is a registered dietitian and provides individual nutrition advice to meet your personal situation and requirements, whether you are looking for weight loss programmes; help with how and what to feed your child; a specific diet plan to manage a medical condition; or a sports nutritionist.
The science of nutrition looks at the provision of necessary nutrients to the body to support life, health and growth. Many common health problems can be prevented, managed and improved with a healthy diet and lifestyle. However, eating and our relationships with food are individual, emotive and often far from scientific, therefore an approach tailored to each client achieves better results, more quickly.
• Infant & toddler nutrition including weaning, dietary requirements and fussy eating
• Weight management and weight loss programmes
• Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) including foods to avoid and individually tailored plans
• Healthy eating for children including fussy eating, weight management and behavioural problems
Please see the services page for a complete list list of her specialist areas.
Dietitians are the only qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems at an individual and wider public health level. They are also regulated by law and are bound by the code of practice set out by the Health and Care Professions Council. The title “Dietitian” can only be used by those who have a degree or postgraduate certificate in Dietetics.
The title “Nutritionist” is not protected therefore anyone can call themselves a nutritionist regardless of whether they have a qualification or not. Nutritionists are qualified only to provide information about food and healthy eating and not specific diets for treating conditions. To make sure you get the best nutritionist in London, check their qualifications.
