Delfa is the Paediatric Dietitian in the Children First EIDS team. She has experience in working with children and their families in clinical and community settings to support them in meeting their nutritional needs and developing a positive relationship with food. Delfa understands the challenges of feeding young children and the need for easy to implement, practical recommendations. Delfa loves nothing more than seeing children thrive to their fullest growth and developmental potential.
At Children First, Delfa provides nutrition management care to children presenting with restrictive eating behaviours and food aversions, disability and feeding issues (including autism, cerebral palsy and developmental delays), poor weight gain/faltering growth, overweight and obesity, food intolerances and allergies, nutrient deficiencies and gastrointestinal issues (e.g. constipation, diarrhoea and IBS).
Delfa has completed extra training to complement her interest in children, including:
- SOS Approach to Feeding
- Ellyn Satter’s Feeding Dynamics Model
- Certificate of Paediatric Nutrition and Dietetics, Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne.
In her spare time, Delfa enjoys cooking and experimenting with new recipes. She can be contacted at [email protected]
