Nutrition does matter!
What we eat can affect our health and how much we enjoy life.
Hi, I'm Emma Verhoek, a NZ Registered Dietitian based in Whanganui.
I have a degree in human nutrition as well as a post-graduate qualification in dietetics. This training ensures I have a good understanding of human nutrition while the extra dietetic training allows me to provide evidence based nutrition therapy for the treatment of specific conditions, e.g. diabetes, bowel diseases, cancer, neurological (Parkinson's), hyperemesis, etc.
I have been fortunate to work in a range of areas of dietetics, spending six years as a clinical dietitian at Tauranga Hospital, two years as food service manager of the Whanganui hospital kitchen and worked as a national dietitian planning and auditing hospital menus. I am passionate about using my knowledge and this experience to help people achieve the best nutrition and enjoy food as much as possible.
I can provide advice and information to those who:
