About me

Patrica Herbert Registered Dietician

Qualifications & Memberships

 

I am a Nutritionist and Registered Dietitian.

To become a Dietitian I completed a four year degree in Nutrition & Food Sciences.

 

I am a member of the UK Health and Care Professions Council and also a full member of the “British Dietetic Association (BDA)” As part of this group I was a core writer of the BDA's Allergen Toolkit for Healthcare Catering.

In addition to my degree I have obtained the 'Award in Education level 3' Teaching Qualification.

Professional experience

 

With over a decade of post-graduate dietetic experience, I have spent the majority of my career helping hundreds of children with food allergies to have access to safe and nutritious meals both at home and in school.

I have extensive experience helping parents who either suspect their child has a food allergy or worry that their child's diet may be compromised due to confirmed allergies. I provide a full allergy focused history, a nutritional assessment and a detailed plan with plenty of practical ideas to equip parents with the tools needed to help navigate their child's allergies, growth and relationship with food.

Alongside running my private business, I also work part-time as a Specialist Paediatric Allergy Dietitian for two local NHS hospitals.

Spare time

In my spare time you will find me mostly looking after my three young children. This involves spending lots of time with them in the kitchen inventing balanced and tasty recipes that they enjoy as well as finding new places to explore in Surrey. I also love taking and sharing inspiring photos of our day-to-day (you can follow me on instagram) and whenever I can I will hop on a plane to go and visit my family in Portugal!
