Bianca Parau

Bianca is an experienced Specialist Paediatric Dietitian offering expert advice and guidance for children of all ages and their families with a friendly yet professional approach. After graduating from the University of the Free State she started her career in South-Africa, but since relocating to the United Kingdom in 2008 she’s worked at various NHS and private hospitals across the country.

Alongside her current NHS commitments Bianca has a private practice, where she helps infants and children of all ages develop a healthy attitude towards food whilst meeting their nutritional requirements to sustain optimal growth and development.  

Her main areas of expertise include infant weaning, feeding difficulties (including fussy eaters), gastroenterology, allergies and intolerances as well as poor growth.  For infants and children with feeding difficulties Bianca can also provide joint consultations with a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist.  

In addition to private consultations, Bianca is a spokesperson for BUPA on nutrition related topics.  She is often a guest presenter at special events and writes peer reviews as well as articles for various publications.
