Hi there, thanks for checking out my site. I’m Madeleine, an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) and a member of the Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA). In addition to being a Dietitian, I am also a Registered Nurse (RN), registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia. Having worked in the healthcare industry for 15 years I have seen first hand the effects of malnutrition and inadequate diets, and unhealthy food behaviours. I know how essential a nutritious diet is to chronic disease prevention and management, as well as establishing a healthy relationship around food.
That Healthy Girl was started as an online space to share my passion and knowledge on all things food and nutrition, while myth-busting topical nutrition issues for my friends and family. Soon enough these topical issues grew (and continue to do so
I have been intrigued by food my whole life, and was fortunately exposed to a healthy diet growing up (thanks to Mum and Dad). This balanced upbringing, as well as my own struggles with food intolerances has given me a greater appreciation for good nutrition, and the intrinsic relationship nutrients have on so many aspects of our health.
For years nutrition was overlooked as a contributor to health, however thanks to ongoing and ever changing nutrition research, I believe there is nutrition resurgence occurring, and I’m so thrilled to be part of it.
The boring stuff (formal qualifications): I have degrees in Health Science, majoring in Nutrition and Dietetics, as well as a Bachelor of Nursing. I believe learning is a life long venture, then more you know, the more you realise you need to learn.
Ultimately, I love helping people, and do hope that at the very least I can inspire you to make healthier choices to be the best version of yourself.
Thanks for stopping by, Madeleine.
