Nishta Saxena has been working as a registered dietitian in the public and private sectors since 2005. Her expertise includes paediatric nutrition, along with chronic disease prevention and management.
As a former dancer, she is acutely aware of the power nutrition can have on a body and performance. In her practice she helps individuals and families through the stages of nutrition — child growth and development, shopping and meal planning, and common issues like allergies and eating disorders. With Nishta’s holistic, nutrition-for-real-life approach, which she uses in her own family, she helps people feed the household affordably while meeting nutritional needs in fun, easy ways. This is one reason her “Feeding Your Baby”program is so popular. She is also known as a“nutrition mythbuster,” promoting evidence-based nutrition rather than food trends.
