I have developed my "Well Fed" programme for babies, toddlers and teenagers, focusing on dietary intake as a whole, and moving away from "healthy" and "unhealthy" foods.
Each course has its own main focus which can range from weaning with allergies to fussy eating.
Training, qualifications & experience
My name is Shannon Quigley and I am a registered paediatric dietitian specialising in allergy and feeding disorders.
I graduated from Glasgow Caledonian University with a BSc in Human Nutrition and Dietetics and since then have worked as a registered dietician across community and acute settings. Since graduating, I have completed a MSc modules in Paediatric Dietetics with Plymouth University.
I started my career working in school meals for a local authority in Scotland. Within this role, I developed and implemented school menus that met Scottish Government legislation. I also provided up-to-date, science-based education programmes for staff and pupils alike. This position helped me gain a passion for paediatric nutrition. I spent a number of years in this position before obtaining my dream job as a paediatric dietitian.
I currently work as a paediatric specialist dietitian both freelance and in the NHS. I have a great passion for helping families. Within my role in the NHS, I specialise in Allergy, Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus, Enteral Feeding and Fussy Eating.
