Belinda Martin

Accredited Practising Dietitian

BSc (Nutr&Food Science); Postgrad. Dip. Diet

I have been a Dietitian for more than 20 years and specialise in paediatrics. I have worked in various positions in the Midwest and South West of WA and have worked as a Senior Paediatric Dietitian at The Royal London Hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital, The Harley Street Clinic and Princess Margaret Hospital for Children. I recently worked for 6 years as a lecturer and clinical placement coordinator and supervisor in the Masters of Dietetics program at Curtin University. I love helping our clients and families achieve their nutrition goals. Becoming a mother has strengthened my interest in nutrition in pregnancy. Like all dietitians, I love food – cooking it, talking about it and eating it! And seeing as I still have small children, a new love of mine is sleep, whenever I can get it!
