Computerised Dietary Analysis
Sian is highly experienced in undertaking both food analysis and menu planning, having undertaken this on behalf of the Royal Marsden hospital patient and restaurant menus between 2004-2011.
She subsequently was trust catering lead on behalf of The Whittington NHS Hospital between 2013-2016.
Sian can analyse your diet using a comprehensive software which will identify how balanced it is and identify any possible deficiencies and importantly how to address these using foods wherever possible.
This can be undertaken also on behalf of residential or care homes so that residents and their families can readily establish that the menus are nutritionally balanced, of appropriate texture and meeting national age based requirements.
Likewise many cafes, restaurants, pubs and catering, provide customers nowadays with the average calorie/energy, fat (total and saturated), sugar and salt per portion. This helps customers select foods they enjoy with the supportive knowledge of its nutritional content.
It is a legal EU requirement to ensure all allergens on menus are coded. Sian can help you code your menus.

What our clients have to say
I was initially referred to Mrs Shepherd following a diagnosis of IBS in 2012. At that time she introduced me to a low fermentable carbohydrate (FODMAP) diet which was a complete revelation. Within a three month period, I noticed a significant improvement in all of my symptoms and, with Mrs Shepherd’s professional expertise and guidance, […]
Sian was my saviour through my treatment. She instilled so much confidence in me that I followed her advice on foods I could and could not eat. She is a professional and knowledgeable in her trade, her service was impeccable. I had regular consultations with Sian who also worked closely with Dr Karp, my oncologist. We were overwhelmed that my bloods were good, including my iron levels and blood cells. This was due to changes in my diet.
SMHigher Education Tutor
It was lovely to meet you today. I was so excited for your information that I instantly installed the ap. You have given me great hope and I feel it will work. You have such a wonderful way of doing your job and sympathising with what I am going through. Having met many doctors with my symptoms, I feel there is finally light at the end of the tunnel. I am just grateful Dr Miller recommended you.
I visited Sian after being recommended by a gastroenterology consultant I have a non alcohol fatty liver. After my first session with Sian she introduced the idea that the cause may be that I binge eat. Having the open, honest and calming conversation with Sian really opened my eyes to my eating habits. She recommended a programme for me to improve my liver health and I now feel so much better. Thank you Sian for your coaching.
