Working in Maternal, Baby & Children’s Nutrition
Charlotte began her working life in the NHS after gaining a first class honours degree in Nutrition and Human Biology and then a Postgraduate Degree from Bristol University in Nutrition and Public Health. Since then Charlotte has worked in various areas of nutrition but enjoys nothing more than reading, writing and talking about her specialist area – Maternal, Baby & Children’s Nutrition.
Charlotte has supported thousands of families with feeding their babies, toddlers and young children, especially since her audience has grown on social media. If you’re a parent looking for help with feeding your baby or toddler, Charlotte has created lots of free resources on this site to help at each stage of your child’s feeding journey. For those starting weaning, her book “How to Wean Your Baby” will give you all the knowledge you need to feed your baby with confidence, and importantly enable you to enjoy the weaning journey too.
Charlotte works consulting with brands, celebrities and in the media commenting on the nutrition matters of the day. Her work has previously been quoted in Mother & Baby, Harper’s Bazaar, The Metro, The Guardian, The Telegraph, Women’s Health and Red magazine and many more. She also featured in the BBC programme “Food: Truth or Scare” over three years, and has appeared across all main UK channels and radio stations, most recently Charlotte was on Jamie & Jimmy’s Friday Night Feast talking about iodine and children’s health.
Charlotte has received numerous awards for her work, and last year won the Best Blog and Best Online Resource for Weaning Week 2020. After many years producing evidence based online content for families, Charlotte was delighted to see her work recognised in this way.
You’ll often find Charlotte consulting for brands and celebrities, and she recently collaborated with The Body Coach, Joe Wicks on the popular book and podcast, “Wean in 15”. As well as supporting Joe with weaning his babies Indie and Marley, Charlotte has supported Stacey Solomon, Lucy Mecklenburgh, Millie Mackintosh and Lauren Pope with feeding their babies.
Charlotte showed great expertise and creativity during this project, helping Demos to design the format of the research workshops. She also had a great manner with the parents who took part, putting them at ease and encouraging them to participate fully in the workshop exercises. The feedback from parents and the services who hosted the workshops was excellent and Demos was delighted with the quality of our findings from the research.
Charlotte from SR Nutrition worked with Demos on a series of research workshops with parents for our 2012 project For Starters. Check out the full report from DEMOS here: Early childhood nutrition should be at the centre of public health policy
