Sydney Withers RD began her post-secondary education at the University of Guelph, where she hoped to marry her passion for connecting with and helping others, with her love of the health sciences. This ultimately led her to pursuing a degree in Applied Human Nutrition, after which she obtained a dietetic internship at Grand River Hospital in Kitchener. During her internship, she completed training in the following areas: Critical care, inpatient surgery, renal nutrition (hemodialysis), diabetes, pediatric nutrition, public health & food service.

In addition to private practice, Sydney works as an industry dietitian where she develops supportive relationships with health care providers, increasing their awareness of nutritional risk factors, prevalence of malnutrition, and barriers to achieving optimal nutritional status across the life cycle.

An area of special interest to Sydney is pediatric nutrition. She has worked as a part-time princess for Fantasy Fables Childrens Entertainment for the past 10 years, which has fostered her love for working with children and families. Her pediatric training at Grand River Hospital allowed her to work in an outpatient clinic with families to address picky eating, failure to thrive and anemia, manage diabetes, and counsel around eating a diet that incorporates more plants. Sydney believes that children have a lot to teach us when it comes to being an intuitive eater, and curious about food.

Other areas of focus within Sydney’s practice include:

    • General Nutrition Counselling & Goal Setting
    • Diabetes
    • Heart Disease
    • Bone Health
    • Digestive Health
    • Weight Management
    • Mindfulness & Intuitive Eating

Sydney is a firm believer that no foods should be deemed forbidden, and wants to help you develop a healthy relationship with food. Please contact Sydney at mnutritionintuition@gmail.com or 905-320-4138 to inquire about working with her!
