There are plenty of dietitians in Australia and while the number of those specialising in paediatrics is growing, so are the number of children and families needing help.
In this episode, I chat with expert paediatric dietitian and business owner, Miriam Raleigh, about the specialist nutrition sector, telehealth services and balancing private practice duties with family duties.
After studying at Monash University with a placement at the Royal Children’s Hospital, Miriam went on to work in adult health services and paediatric dietetics both in Australia and overseas in London.
Upon returning to Melbourne in 2009, she used her 16+ years of experience and her new experience as a parent to found Child Nutrition, a private practice providing expert nutritional advice for children and their families.
Since opening, Child Nutrition has grown with another 3 locations now open across Melbourne. The practice also offers Telehealth services to help reduce the wait time for such a prolific sector.

“The parents will come in and say my child is a fussy eater. To me, fussy is a behaviour. We can implement some behavioural strategies to regain the control during meal times.” Miriam Raleigh #Nutrition #Paediatrics #AlliedHealth
