Meet the Team

Bianca Berton-Scarlet

Registered Dietitian – BSC (Human Nutrition), MDiet, Monash FODMAP trained

 

Hi I’m Bianca, co-founder and Dietitian at The Friendly Food Co.

I am a huge foodie and super passionate about all things gut health! I understand Irritable bowel syndrome is a frustrating and isolating condition, so my ultimate goal when working with you, is to make you feel relaxed, supported and in control.

When we work together, I take the time to really understand your concerns, needs and goals, so I can tailor our sessions to best support you. I use up to date evidence-based practice to provide you with the tools and knowledge to optimise your gut health. I am a firm believer in sustainable results, so I teach you the tools to make healthy lifestyle changes that will optimise your gut health long term!

Alongside IBS, I also see clients for Endometriosis, Coeliac disease, reflux, Diverticular disease, bariatric surgery and general digestive health concerns.

Kelsey Paterson

Registered Dietitian – BAppSC (Sports Nutrition), MDiet, Monash FODMAP trained

 

Hi I’m Kelsey, co-founder and Dietitian at The Friendly Food Co.

I became a foodie through the development of my food allergies and IBS diagnosis. Through this experience I found a great level of empathy and creative ways to make foods taste great without trigger foods in them. Outside of food, I am an outdoors lover so if I am not in the kitchen or at work I will likely be hiking somewhere beautiful.

When we work together, I take the time to really understand your needs, priorities and goals. As I have experienced IBS first hand I have a deep understanding for what it can be like and use this to empathise with you. I will work with you to make small but effective changes that have a large impact on your health and well-being.

Alongside IBS, I also see clients for sports nutrition advice and food allergies and intolerances.
