Practical dietary tips for pregnancy

Presenter Melanie McGrice, Family and Prenatal Dietician - Nutrition Plus

Melanie McGrice is an Advanced Accredited Practising Dietitian, one of the few dietitians in Australia to achieve that status. Her success has made her an in-demand practitioner, author, conference speaker, and researcher who is eager to share what she knows with her clients and her peers. She is a go-to resource for the media, who frequently turn to her for their articles and news segments on nutrition, fertility, and women’s health.

Melanie’s professional network is extensive. She is the past chairperson of the Obesity Interest Group of the Dietitians Association of Australia, has served on the Board of the Weight Management Council of Australia and currently sits on the Early Life Nutrition Coalition.  Melanie works tirelessly with a wide range of specialists in both mental and physical health to ensure that her clients have every resource at their disposal.

Melanie earned her Master’s Degree in Dietetics with a simple goal in mind: to help people use nutrition to make a positive difference in their lives. That goal became a reality with the establishment of our Melbourne practice. Here, Melanie and her team of experts make it easy for you to translate the science of nutrition into real-world solutions for a healthy, balanced life.

Melanie is passionate about educating women to eat well, appreciate good food and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Her approach to nutrition is fun and fresh, as well as effective. Melanie and our dietitians work with people from all walks of life, from stay-at-home mums to busy professionals struggling to find nutritional answers to their health challenges.
