Meet our nutritionist

Lucy-Jones-and-Archie

At Little Dish, our mission is to make a positive impact on children’s health and since 2014, we have worked closely with award-winning dietitian, broadcaster and Mum, Lucy Jones (MRES BSC Hons RD MBDA) to help us achieve this.  Lucy is qualified in Human Nutrition and Dietetics from London Metropolitan University and is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.  You might have seen Lucy on TV programmes such as The Food Hospital on Channel 4 and Jamie Oliver’s documentary, Jamie’s Sugar Rush.   Lucy is Mum to Archie, and new-born baby Jack, and she combines her professional expertise and her first-hand experience to help us ensure that all of our food is tailored to meet toddlers’ specific nutritional needs.

Lucy says “It has been really interesting for me to work with Little Dish on their nutrition credentials and I’ve been really impressed by the Little Dish team’s dedication to making their meals the most nutritionally balanced on the market.  Little Dish pay attention not just to important nutrients but also tastes, textures and proportions which are all important to the development of young palates.  Parents can rest assured that Little Dish meals are not only tasty but nutritionally well-balanced for toddlers”.

What is the difference between a Nutritionist and a Dietitian?

A registered Dietitian (RD) is a qualified health professional who will have undertaken a significant amount of study, training and assessment in order to assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems.  They are the only nutrition professionals to be regulated by law, and are governed by an ethical code to ensure that they always work to the highest standard. ‘Nutritionists’ may or may not have this level of training and they aren’t regulated in the same way.
