Our Services

Nutrition & Dietetics

San Nutrition is an important part of the Sydney Adventist Hospital’s health care team. Our Dietitians are university-trained professionals with Accredited Practising Dietitian status (APD). They apply the science of nutrition, combined with food knowledge and communication skills, to help achieve good health through eating well.

For centuries, Seventh Day Adventists have been known to follow a 'lacto-ovo-vegetarian' diet. It is believed, with much supporting evidence, that a vegetarian diet is a preferred diet for healthy living.

The Sydney Adventist Hospital endorses the "Dietary Guidelines for Australian Adults" as recommended by the National Health and Medical Research Council (2003), and the San Menu incorporates these guidelines.

San Nutrition offers a range of nutritional services to inpatients and members of the community, including individual consultations, group seminars and programs, and free nutrition tools & resources.
