    Prioritising prebiotics: what, why, how

    Prioritising prebiotics: what, why, how

    A gut-wrenching 75% of Australian parents rate their gut health as fair or poor, according to a recent community survey. Luckily, there’s a gut-ful of ways dietitians can address common misconceptions about what to eat (or not eat) to improve digestive wellbeing. In this podcast, we’re joined by ‘The Gut Health Dietitian’ Nicole Dynan to explore the primary gut health concerns of Australians and how dietitians can effectively help ease symptoms through prebiotics. Nicole also touches on practical ways to improve gut health through everyday dietary changes and explains the synergistic effect of prebiotics and probiotics.

    Bridging nutritional gaps in aged care

    Bridging nutritional gaps in aged care

    There’s a sad reality in residential aged care facilities: the nutritional value of foods served is often inadequate and fails to meet Australian Dietary Guidelines for older adults. In this podcast, we’re joined by Dr Sandra Iuliano to explore the extent to which food in aged care facilities impacts a resident’s health. Sandra talks through the key findings of The Fractures Trial, a world first research initiative which found intake of three and a half serves of dairy a day over two years prevented malnutrition in older people and reduced hip fractures by 46%. Sandra also emphasises the crucial role dietitians play in collaborating with chefs and educating healthcare professionals to improve resident’s food intake.

    Diving into infant and toddler nutrition: The OzFITS Study

    The OzFITS study is the first-of-its-kind Australian-wide survey of infant and toddler feeding practices and food intake. In this podcast, we’re joined by Dr Merryn Netting to talk through the key findings of the study, including Australia’s breastfeeding rates, low iron intakes and an alarmingly high proportion of calories coming from discretionary foods.

RD2be From the US

I’m studying to become a dietitian and in the US, I haven’t been able to find any podcasts like this! About experience, business, skill building, leadership, etc. All of the podcasts I can find here are on journal articles. So thank you for putting this content out! It’s so helpful!
