Eating well not only helps us feel better but can also prevent our risk of certain conditions and diseases. Yet it can be very confusing to know what to eat when there are so many conflicting messages in the media about what makes a healthy diet.

At MQ Health Nutrition and Dietetics Clinic we can support you in understanding how best to manage your health and wellbeing through diet. Our university-qualified dietitians can provide you with evidence-based nutrition advice for the prevention and management of various health conditions. They are trained to provide a comprehensive nutritional assessment, individualised dietary program, counselling and education. All dietary support is tailored to the individual’s needs, lifestyle and food preferences. Our dietitians will provide strategies, meal plans and recipes to help you achieve your health goals.
