Deb Blakley on Food, Body Peace and Children


Deb Blakley is an Accredited Practising Dietitian and mum, who is passionate about kids learning to love food from birth and beyond.

Deb delights in supporting grown-ups (parents, carers and educators) to positively and joyfully connect or reconnect with food and eating. Deb believes that ALL bodies are amazing, and she applies a weight-neutral, non-diet approach in supporting kids to grow into the bodies that are right for them.

Her approach supports parents, carers, families and educators to make decisions about nutrition and health from a place of care and consideration rather than control.
