Naomi Crockett joined our team in 2022 after many years working at St George Hospital as a Senior Paediatric Dietitian, a role she continues to hold. She has a Masters in Nutrition & Dietetics from the University of Sydney and a Bachelor of Applied Science in Food and Nutrition from the University of Western Sydney.
Naomi has extensive experience working alongside a specialist Feeding Speech Pathologist & Paediatrician in the Paediatric Multidisciplinary Feeding Clinic providing care to babies and children with complex health issues & feeding difficulties.
Naomi has a passion for working with children that require tube feeding or have other feeding difficulties. Her goal is to work with families toward the removal of tubes as early as possible. Or for those children where this is not possible, come up with a plan that is most suitable for the child & their family. She has experience with blended tube feeds. Naomi believes in a collaborative approach, working closely with the family and the health care team.
Naomi has worked in the Special Care Nursery, feeding our keen little babies who arrive too early. She supports babies and kids who are too little and failing to thrive.
At the other end of the spectrum, Naomi was integral in setting up the Paediatric Obesity services at St George Hospital and has worked extensively with children & families who are above the healthy weight range.
Naomi has experience working with the families of babies, toddlers, children and adolescents, including those with disabilities and NDIS clients.
As a mum of 2 kids – she completely understands the challenges of a busy family and the difficulties of providing a healthy diet or easy feeding plans when time is limited. She also understands managing stressful mealtimes with fussy eaters.
Naomi can help make mealtimes and feeding more pleasant for the whole family. She can guide and manage your child with allergies or intolerances, help with the introduction of solids, work with food refusal behaviours, and make sure your child is meeting their nutrition requirements.
