Siân Visser

Hi, I'm Siân, accredited dietitian. As a mum to a neurodivergent child and other children with allergies, I truly understand how challenging and complicated feeding kids can be.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time in nature with my children, cooking, gardening, hiking, running, reading and the odd creative project.
