COVID-19 Update

We’re still open!

Many of you would have watched the Prime Minister’s address regarding further closures required. We noticed that some media outlets reported incorrect information regarding these new restrictions. To confirm, Nourish Tasmania is NOT on the list of businesses being asked to shut down. In fact, the Government has requested we remain available to ensure all our clients can continue with treatment.

We are taking the COVID-19 virus seriously and we will be implementing additional measures to ensure your safety during your next appointment. Some of these include:

  • Ensuring you are the only one in the waiting room prior to your appointment
  • Requesting you use hand sanitiser on entry and exit from your appointment.
  • Ensuring 1.5m distancing between you and the dietitian and support staff.

We are offering phone consults and hope to be running telehealth appointments (video consults) in the coming weeks. If you prefer to change your face to face appointment to one of these options please let us know. If you would like to take up this option and your appointment is first thing in the morning just leave a message on the answering machine and we will call you at your scheduled appointment time.

If you have any questions regarding this or your appointment, please do not hesitate to call our team on 0362347040

Our Team of Accredited Practising Dietitians

Fiona Rowell
Founder & Mentor

Raised on an Irish fruit farm (http://mrjeffaresblackcurrants.ie/), Fiona has always appreciated the importance & joy of eating good food.  Trained in the UK, she was lured to this magnificent State by a wonderful Tasmanian man over 20 years ago.  She was fortunate to extend her professional practice at the Royal Hobart Hospital with rotations through all clinical areas & food service until landing her dream job in paediatric care.

Never a fan of restrictive eating, her goal has always been to be a compassionate dietitian empowering clients to discover what works best for them as individuals to achieve their health goals and live life to the full.

“I am delighted to introduce you to my talented colleagues who are committed to my vision of quality client centred care to meet your individual needs.”

After a bit of a nomadic earlier life, Rima has settled in Tasmania with her Swedish husband and two little girls. With 10 years of experience as a dietitian, Rima has an extensive range of knowledge in treating a variety of conditions. Rima joins the team with personal experience in managing food allergies and fussy eating and an interest in all things paediatric.

Rima also has a keen interest in the dietary management of many gastrointestinal related conditions, including the low fodmap diet and the low food chemical diet for IBS, and she brings to her practice experience that she has gained working at the Royal Hobart Hospital in a variety of different specialty areas, including working with gastroenterology teams and oncology.

Rima is a passionate advocate of lifestyle changes to facilitate nutrition that can improve your symptoms and your quality of life.
