WELCOME TO FOODSAVVY

Founded by Sarah Elliott in 2006, we are an experienced team of New Zealand Registered Dietitians dedicated to assisting you achieve your personal health goals.

We are leading dietitians in the dietary management of digestive disorders including irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease. There are many other conditions we can also assist with.

We can assist in the following areas:

  • FODMAP intolerance

    Please visit the 'Low FODMAP Lounge' to learn more

  • Fructose malabsorption
    Please visit the 'Low FODMAP Lounge' to learn more
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
    IBS is a condition characterised by bloating, abdonminal pain, wind, distention, changes in bowel habits, or a combination of these. There are many different strategies, dietary, medical and lifestyle, which may give relief. Each person is individual, so working out which strategies work for you is important.
  • Coeliac disease
    Being diagnosed with Coeliac disease means a life long commitment to a gluten free diet. This can be overwhelming and education from a registered dietitian enables you to be not only confident about your food choices, but know you are getting all the nutrition you need.

    Understand obvious as well as hidden sources of gluten. Learn about label reading, eating out & managing travelling.
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
    IBD (Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis), is an autoimmune condition causing the digestive tract to become inflamed. This is not caused by food, however there are a number of dietary changes which may be effective in managing the symptoms. These include diarrhoea, gas, bloating and abdominal pain. Speak to one of our dietitians to learn more.
  • Food allergies
    The symptoms of food allergies can range from mild irritation to life threatening.
    If you have been diagnosed with a food allergy, it is very important to understand not only how to avoid this in obvious and hidden sources, but also which foods and nutrients need to be replaced.
    This enables a continued enjoyment of food.
  • Food intolerance (including food chemical sensitivity)
    Unlike allergies these unfortunately can not be tested for (with exception of breath testing for lactose and fructose). Therefore we lead our clients through tailored elimination diets with subsequent challenges (if successful) to pinpoint your key triggers. People can be intolerant to a wide range to foods including:
    • wheat
    • gluten
    • dairy
    • soy
    • FODMAPs
    • food chemicals (natural and artificial)
    We also work with those who have managed to identify the foods which lead to symptoms, but as a result have an unhealthy and unbalanced diet. We provide practical advice to enjoy food again with enough nutrition.
  • Weight management
    Our clients come to us looking for practical solutions to feeling and looking their best. Many of our clients know what do but lack the time or motivation to put healthy living practices in place. We can provide you with practical tools to get the results you want. Don't let a busy lifestyle get the best of you, we can help you get on track and stay on track in achieving optimal health. Contact Us today to book an appointment

    We have a highly successful approach to helping our clients achieve their weight loss goals in a maintainable way. Many people have tried Fad Diets time and time again with little or no success. At FoodSavvy, we work with our clients to put healthy and easy solutions in place to avoid feeling like they are 'on a diet'. We help clients to identify what has worked well in the past, and how to make this a permanent lifestyle change, while removing any barriers to success. We have extensive experience in helping clients identify and preventing emotional eating. With today's idea of portions, we help clients to identify suitable portions for them through avoiding over eating, while preventing feeling hungry while trying to lose weight.

    We now offer 15 minute consultations to help keep people motivated and on track to reaching their goals.
  • Eating disorders
  • Blood pressure/cholesterol
  • PCOS
  • Children's health
  • Pregnancy & lactation
  • Diabetes
