Hannah Scaglia, Registered Dietitian, Director of Wholesome Nutrition

 

Currently on maternity leave in 2023 

I have worked as a Registered Dietitian for 14 years,

in a variety of settings – hospital, aged care, community

and private practice. I have worked in New Zealand,

Australia and the United Kingdom. This has given me a

rich experience learning about the nutrition of people

of many ages, stages of life and cultures.  

I worked as a Dietitian at Tauranga Hospital for 8 years,

including in a Clinical Lead role across medical and

surgical wards, and intensive care. I am particularly

interested in the area of nutrition and gastrointestinal surgery. 

Nutrition Science is a relatively new, rapidly evolving science. We are constantly learning new information about the effect of food and nutrition on human health. As a Dietitian I know how to research, question and interpret this science. Its up to me to translate the science jargon into a language that you can understand and use to benefit your nutrition and health.

I understand that eating and drinking is not just about nutrition. It is a major part of socialising, showing that you care, community, religion, pleasure and culture. It’s important that I don’t just tell you what to eat. I’ll listen as you talk about what is important to you and we’ll make sure that the nutrition advice is going to suit you. Respecting your unique story while we understand your nutrition.
