Ngaire is a fully qualified, medically trained dietitian passionate about helping people get the best from life and age well.
With a deep appreciation of the benefits and pleasures of real food, Ngaire is intent on alerting adults, especially those approaching, or already embracing their later years to their unique nutritional needs.
Most people - whether they're frail or fighting fit - are unaware that public health messages which are ideal for younger adults can instead be unhelpful, even harmful, for those entering their senior years.

Ngaire is also one of a committed group working to ensure that the frail elderly, often in assisted care, have food that enriches their lives. She holds or has held a number of advisory roles in this area including:
