Hello I'm Emma Shafqat, a Paediatric Dietitian, plus a fellow allergy mum who has survived fussy eating with my daughter.

Why I'm Different I'm not just a healthcare professional

Since graduating with a first class honours degree in Dietetics and Nutrition. I have been working as a Dietitian for over 9 years. I have worked for the NHS, in special needs schools and privately focusing on children’s health.  


I help children and their families overcome a broad range of dietary issues and I’m proud to also bring this professional experience to my private practice. But I am not just a Dietitian, I am also a SOS Paediatric Feeding Therapist. I have also worked with brands like Just Chill Baby Sleep and I am parenting expert for Bloss. 


I have also been featured in the Metro and on numerous top 10 parenting podcasts. 


Mum of a child with allergies and a fussy eater

My daughter Olivia had severe reflux as a baby and went on to suffer from several food allergies. I fully understand the feeling of despair that so many other parents experience.


I saw Olivia arching her back in pain and screaming as she struggled with reflux. She developed rashes from an egg allergy and also spent time in hospital as a result of her cow’s milk allergy.



My training as a Paediatric Dietitian and SOS Feeding Therapist has helped us manage Olivia’s dietary needs enormously. We made carefully considered changes to her diet and she is now a completely different girl! 


She can still be a ‘fussy eater’ but my ‘Dietitian toolkit’ means that I have lots of tricks up my sleeve to make sure she gets all the nutrition she needs as she’s growing up.



As a parent, I fully understand the practical implications of all the advice I provide. 



I know what works and how to help your family.
