Course Trainer – Lucy Neary

Lucy Neary is a registered dietitian, Mum/Step Mum of 3 and lifelong food fanatic. Lucy is on a mission to eliminate outdated and widespread feeding myths and to turn the next generation into enthusiastic eaters with a healthy relationship with their food.

Having worked as a dietitian Lucy thought she would know what to do when it came to weaning with her children but after researching the subject there was a lot of conflicting information. This is when she started on her mission to educate parents and childcare professionals on the importance of healthy eating and working with fussy eaters.

Fast forward 5 years and Lucy has worked with countless parents by teaching the facts and busting the myths around the nutritional needs of babies and development. Lucy has a passion for helping children love their food and encouraging healthy eating.
