3 year old with Diarrhoea
“My 3 year old daughter had been having trouble with her stomach for a few months and it was beginning to cause a lot of distress for her and for us as parents.
I was seeing a paediatric gastroenterologist who was keen for my daughter to undergo an endoscopy, but I wanted to explore her diet to see if there were any foods that were causing the loose stools
From the moment I spoke to Victoria I just felt a huge wave of relief that someone was really going to listen and help me. Victoria offered us an appointment within days. Straight away Victoria was warm and welcoming and spent a lot of time listening to me which was something I had not had. She took notes on my daughters diet and studying her red book. We tried exclusion diets and I was given a wealth of easy to understand information, there was no jargon or complication. Victoria was always on hand to support on the phone, text and email. Victoria also liased with the nursery and wrote to the Gastroenterologist about what we were doing.
Between us all we were able pinpoint what was causing the issue in my daughters diet, without having to go to surgery. I never would have resolved this without Victoria’s help and knowledge and now I fully understand the triggers and can easily work this into my daughters diet. I can’t thank Victoria enough and I feel so lucky to have found her. Thank you”
9 month old with multiple food allergies/intolerance
“We were recommended Victoria after our little baby boy was diagnosed with a number of suspected food intolerances and had ongoing symptoms as a result. I was breastfeeding and was really struggling to give both him and myself a varied diet due to the number of foods we had to avoid, especially once we started weaning him onto solids. Victoria helped put together a varied diet plan for both of us, which also helped tackle his ongoing symptoms. Within a few weeks, he was symptom free and enjoying a variety of foods. With Victoria’s ongoing support, he is now gaining weight and loves his food! I would definitely recommend seeing Victoria if your child has food allergies or intolerances”
1 year old with Cows Milk Protein Intolerance
“We brought our son Theo to see Victoria at the beginning of January 2018. He had been diagnosed with a cows milk protein intolerance and after seeing the consultant at our local hospital for a second time, his weight wasn’t improving. After many tests failing to uncover an underlying cause, we made an appointment with Victoria to see if there was anything we could do ourselves to help him gain weight.
Right from the start Victoria was friendly and welcoming. She made the time to go through a comprehensive list of questions about Theo and his diet, as well as our family life in general. She gave us great information about different types of foods and their nutrition levels, ideas for meal plans and liquid intakes throughout the day. As new parents, we were unaware of a few things but no question was too silly!
We went away from our appointment armed with recipe books, info sheets and lots of tips to get started.
We saw Victoria again after 4 weeks and was amazed at Theo gaining nearly a kilo in weight in such a short space of time. We are now moving on to milk challenges with Theo with Victoria’s guidance and are hoping he will enjoy dairy soon!
Thank you so much Victoria!”
