Tabitha Ward

Weight Management Dietitian
& Health Writer


I am a HCPC Registered Dietitian, with a keen interest in weight management. Currently, I am working as a Senior Public Health Dietitian in weight management for a local authority. My role is pretty varied, but mainly I provide personalised nutrition advice to clients to help them follow a healthier lifestyle and make sustainable changes for life.

Alongside the day job, I am a freelance health writer. I write for several magazines, websites and blogs on a variety of nutrition topics and produce evidence-based articles to bridge the gap between food and health and help bust common nutrition myths. I also work for the Health Nutritionist on a freelance basis. This involves providing practical nutrition advice to both clients and companies. In my down time, I love travelling, trying new cuisines, and climbing fig trees.

She set up nutritional information sheets for all of our products, the nutritional FAQs on our website and has helped us with recipe development for our healthier summer BBQ campaign. Tabitha is very knowledgeable, efficient, hard-working and I'd highly recommend her."
