Deb Blakely




Introducing the Brisbane Dietitian, Nutritionist and mum who is passionate about kids learning to love good food from birth and beyond.

Deb is an Accredited Practising Dietitian & Accredited Nutritionist, recognised by the Dietitians Association of Australia. She is particularly passionate about supporting grown-ups (parents, carers & early childhood educators) to positively & joyfully connect or reconnect with food & eating and share this with the children in their care.

Deb believes that ALL bodies are amazing, and she applies a weight-neutral, non-diet approach in supporting kids to grow into the bodies that are right for them. Her approach supports parents, carers, families & educators to make decisions about nutrition and health from a place of care & consideration rather than control.  Deb is particularly skilled at working with children and families who are struggling with fussy eaters, problem feeders, children with sensory feeding issues (e.g. ASD, Aspergers Syndrome, ADD/ADHD) and children with weight concern.  


Senior Occupational Therapist





Strengths as an OT? words from Ros "Valuing and respecting the unique qualities of each child and their family that I have the privilege to work with. I grow each time I work with a child as they share with me their individual skills and gifts. I like to think that my main strength is to listen and work sensitively with families to prioritise the needs that are most important to them. I like to work collaboratively with the focus to promote the child’s confidence and feeling of success in their daily life. My personal practice model is to deliver therapy that supports independence with the aim that I make myself redundant"
