Alex Bartrop

Accredited practising dietitian

I’m Alex, a paediatric specialist dietitian providing dietetic services for children in the Hunter.

As an Accredited Practising Dietitian, I’ll work with you to optimise your child’s growth and nutrition without compromising the enjoyment that eating brings.

My philosophy is all in the name – whether your child eats by mouth or a feeding tube, or has special dietary requirements, wishing for your child to enjoy a bright appetite, a brightly coloured diet, and bright and positive mealtime experiences is a goal that all families deserve and can accomplish.
