Hi there, I'm Kate Appleton
Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) and Team Dietitian at Nutrition Nation
Kate is an Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD), wife and mum to two very active primary school kids. Her passion for health and nutrition comes from her own personal journey of growing up in the world of ballet and dance, then through experiencing the many health challenges that come with pregnancy, post-partum health and having small children to feed!
Kate believes food is as an integral part of maintaining good health and preventing disease and works with her clients to provide the education and tools they need to help make informed food choices. She believes that living a healthy life should not be hard or confusing, and it should not be restrictive or about the next best diet. Kate strives to translate the nutrition science, support and guide you to better health, and show you how to achieve your goals.
