Hi Move Through Life dancers, my name is Francisca Pereira and I am an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD)/Nutritionist. I will be contributing to your monthly newsletter every now and then with articles around food and health. Please speak to Jo if there is a particular topic you’d like to know more about. Alternatively you can come see me at my private practice in the Adelaide CBD if you require specific dietary advice.
My interest in food and nutrition started at a very young age where I learnt to cook a variety of different foods with my mother and grandmother. Coming from an Indian/Malaysian background I have personal experience in the Indian/Asian diet, which will allow me to provide healthy recipes and recipe modification ideas to make life in the kitchen easy for my clients!
My passion for food and health continued throughout high school and eventually I found I could pursue this through my tertiary education. I studied Science & Nutrition for over 6 years, completing a Bachelor of Science majoring in Biochemistry & Physiology, Honours in Food and Nutrition Science & Masters in Nutrition & Dietetics.
I have been an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) working in private practice for over a year and have seen a broad range of clinical conditions.
My main focus is weight management/general healthy eating for all ages. I’m also interested in Sports Nutrition, in particular working with Dancers as I have had 12+ years of dance experience in Classical Ballet and Bollywood dance.
Another area of interest is; Gastrointestinal Disorders such as Coeliac Disease, Crohns & Irritable Bowel Syndrome. As an APD I am qualified to advice clients on specific nutritional management of many health conditions (no GP referral needed). I will be able to translate scientific nutrition information into personalised, practical dietary advice.
