Nishta Saxena has been working as a registered dietitian in the public and private sectors since 2005. Her expertise includes paediatric nutrition, along with chronic disease management, weight and cholesterol regulation, and cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes prevention. Nutrition can transform lives, Nish believes, and it is her goal to share her passionate worldview that nutrition is truly the best medicine.
In her practice she helps families through the stages of nutrition — starting solids for babies, child growth and development, family meal planning, and common issues like allergies and eating disorders. With Nishta’s holistic, nutrition-for-real-life approach, which she uses with her own family, parents feed their household affordably while meeting nutritional needs in fun, easy ways — ways that foster positive, lifelong health habits. This is one reason her “Feeding Your Baby” program is so popular. She is also known as a“nutrition mythbuster,” promoting evidence-based nutrition rather than food trends.
