About DR AMY LOVELL

My speciality area is infant and child nutrition. I can work with families who are navigating first foods, have children who are fussy eaters or who would like to reduce stress at meals times.

I am exceptionally passionate about ensuring children have the best start to a lifetime of eating and believe that the decisions we make for children early in their lives have far-reaching impacts as they grow. I can help you navigate what can sometimes be a bumpy road of getting your child to love their veggies and can help you optimise your family’s food and nutrition choices through taking a holistic approach to health and wellbeing.

I am a certified SOS (Sequential Oral Sensory) Dietitian, which is an approach to fussy eating feeding therapy that uses a systematic approach to address the sensory and oral skills that a child needs to eat a wide variety of foods and textures.

I currently only see clients via video or phone call. 

BSc Biomedical Science (University of Auckland), PGCert Human Nutrition (Deakin University), Master of Nutrition and Dietetics (University of Sydney), Doctor of Philosophy – Health Sciences (University of Auckland)

I completed my PhD research in Paediatric Nutrition at the University of Auckland in 2019. I completed my Dietetics training in Australia and am both a New Zealand Registered Dietitian (NZRD) and Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD) in Australia.

I currently work as a lecturer in the Department of Nutrition at the University of Auckland and have a casual role at Starship Children’s Hospital in Auckland where I work with children with cancer.

My research is largely focused on early childhood nutrition (including infant gut health and immunity, fussy eating and oncology) and I have an interest in the development and management of fussy eating behaviours throughout childhood. 

"Amy has been so supportive and helpful to work with. With her guidance we’ve seen some real improvements in my daughter’s picky eating. She’s given us the tools to change stressful meal times into a much more enjoyable part of the day."

 

"Amy has been a huge support in our son’s food journey after chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. Amy has knowledge and understanding about both the physical and emotional aspects of his struggles. Her compassion for our son (and for us) has been invaluable."
