Welcome to my blog

Welcome to the Healthy Start Nutrition blog!

My name is Kathleen Perrone and I’m an experienced Paediatric and Maternal Dietitian providing clinic, in-home and phone consultations in Melbourne. The focus of my blog will be all things nutrition and feeding for families. My focus is around fussy eating, feeding problems, division of responsibility (parents provide, children decide) and promoting a positive relationship with food. My aim is for families to RELAX about feeding/nutrition for their children and enjoy mealtimes!


If you have a suggestion for a blog post I'd love to hear it - so please get in contact.

I also do regular posts and share articles on Facebook. You can follow my page here: https://www.facebook.com/healthystartnutritionau/
