Kia Ora I'm Davinia (BSc, NSNZ)
Women's Health & Family Nutritionist.
A little about me...
"I enjoy living a life of balance and I love helping my clients find balance in their lives too."
When I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer at the age of 30 the balance in my life was seriously challenged. I really did not want my cancer diagnosis and the treatment that followed to take over my life. During this time I experienced just how powerful good nutrition and wellbeing practices can be when life throws you a curveball.
It helped me stay as physically and mentally strong as possible and I was able to maintain some normality and balance in my life. Often nutrition and exercise is the first thing that we let go of when facing a life challenge.
I practice the same dietary and lifestyle methods that I recommend to my clients. Here is what this looks for me in my life...
My biggest health challenge is managing my energy levels.
I am mindful of keeping all forms of stress on my body down as I have already battled breast cancer once and I wish to avoid having to do it again!
I enjoy all foods from all the food groups including the treat group! I eat balanced meals and snacks most of the time as it helps keep my energy levels up and manages my weight.
I cook double what my family needs for dinner so there are leftovers.
I often give my children very simple but healthy meals that can be prepared in about 10 minutes.
I love sports like snow skiing, surfing, rockclimbing, diving and biking.
I get a huge benefit from daily restorative practices such as yoga, diaphragmatic breathing and naps while my toddler is napping if I can.
I feel best on 8 hours sleep a night.

I feel very privileged to be the Registered Nutritionist for Tots Pantry, an inspirational local business offering nutritious balanced meals for 1 to 5 year olds, delivered to your door.
Both Tot’s Pantry and Zesty Fox Nutrition share a common mission to make healthy eating easier for busy parents, so it is a partnership that is close to my heart.
I worked in the food industry for over 10 years and saw how food marketing can affect the choices that we make and how business profit goals can affect the nutritional integrity of the food that we find on our supermarket shelves.
Now in my clinical practice I teach you how to see through the marketing and read food labels, compare nutrition claims and make better food choices for your family while keeping to your budget.
