Sarah George

Sarah has a Master of Dietetics and is an Accredited Practising Dietitian recognised by the Dietitians Association of Australia. She initially studied a Bachelor of Science (majoring in genetics), and began her professional career as a secondary school science and mathematics teacher.  However, Sarah soon realised she wanted to combine her passion for educating people with her love of food and nutrition.

Sarah is focused on achieving the best outcomes for you using the latest scientific evidence to deliver practical recommendations.  She is a strong believer of “everything in moderation” and enjoys the opportunity to show her clients how they can enjoy the foods they love as part of a healthy diet.

Sarah has a keen interest in women’s and children’s health.  Being a mum of two children, she recognises the importance of taking care of your health in order to give the best of yourself to your family and loved ones.  She has specialised training in children’s nutrition, having studied at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, and is able to help guide you and your child through the management of food intolerance and/or food allergies, growth concerns and weight management, fussy eating, and nutritional deficiencies.

Sarah recognises the importance of gut health for optimal health and well-being.  She has helped many clients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) utilising the low FODMAP diet.  She continues to stay up to date with the latest research and evidence within this area, and helps facilitate various online support groups for people both in Australia and across the world, including a support group for parents with children on a low FODMAP diet.

In her spare time, Sarah can be found running after her two busy toddlers and enjoying time with her family.  Coming from an Italian background she loves eating and cooking great Italian food – yes, she could not live without bread, cheese, or pasta!
