Nutrition & Breastfeeding Support


Accredited Practicing Dietitian (Paediatrics & Women's Health) and Breastfeeding Counsellor. Helping women and children nourish their body using evidence-based approaches to give their child the best start to life.


I’m Kristy Manners, an Accredited Practicing Dietitian who is passionate about teaching women how to support their body and their baby at every stage of their parenting journey. The first 1,000 days of life are a critical window of opportunity. It’s the period from preconception through to a child turning two years old that establishes the foundations for long term health, growth and neurodevelopment through diet and breastfeeding. My medical career has enriched me with many experiences globally. I’ve managed malnutrition centres for vulnerable children in Africa, run health programs in Cambodia and worked as a senior paramedic in Western Australia. These experiences have led me to where I am today, as a consultant and mother who thrives on getting game-changing results for parents and their young ones.

    Thanks Kristy! We really appreciate the time you spent with us. There is a lot of information out there and it was very helpful to speak with you and have you share your expert knowledge and experience to help us make a plan that suits our situation. We have been using the tips, advice and resources you gave us for a few weeks now and have found them all valuable. It was really convenient that we could have our appointments at home and thank you for following up with us later to check that everything is on track. - Meagan

    When I met Kristy in Kenya and I had no idea she had had such an interesting life! We shared notes on being pregnant, breastfeeding and the immense change that came upon us upon delivery of our babies. Both of us left Kenya and are now reinventing (or re-discovering?) ourselves while discovering the journey of motherhood. I am glad that she started Growth Spectrum, you couldn't get a better person to accompany you during your first 1000 days as a mother. - Lilia

    "Was great having Kristy come out to our house to discuss diet/intolerance issues both with myself and my newborn. She spent a lot of time with us, taking a very detailed history, came up with a plan to follow and offered lots of tips and suggestions to keep us going on our breastfeeding journey despite current struggles. She also gave a detailed run down of her suggestions and history in a concise document so that we would have a record for our GP and paediatrician. Kristy has then kept check on us with extra support via email. Definitely worth booking an appointment with for extra support to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle." - Erin
