Advice, support and a listening ear from a trusted expert and children's Dietitian Dr. Kirsty Porter

Nutrition4Kids was founded by NHS Paediatric Dietitian Dr. Kirsty Porter in 2019. She has over twelve years experience working with families in a hospital setting and previously worked as an assistant University Professor in England. 

Kirsty has a genuine passion for helping children to form a positive relationship with food and takes great joy in supporting parents on a challenging journey.  Her inspiration for starting Nutrition4Kids is the vast amount of misleading information online about infant & children's nutrition.

As a first time mum I was very confused and overwhelmed at the thought of weaning. It seemed everything I read said different stuff. My daughter has a cows milk allergy  and bad reflux so I didn’t really know where to begin. I did Kirsty’s work shop and it was brilliant. She is so passionate about helping parents on this journey. She went through everything in detail and I left the worship feeling confident and excited to start. We began weaning today and used lots of the tips and advice Kirsty taught us to help create a good foundation. Eliza loved it and it definitely took the stress out of it for me.

A tailored individual assessment of your child's eating and drinking habits. The process starts by filling in a comprehensive survey, followed by an in-depth consultation session. Dr. Kirsty then writes a customised action plan and guides you through the process.
