Sophie Jamieson

Education Consultant, Nutrition, Personal Development, Sustainability

Sophie Jamieson is a qualified Accredited Practicing Dietitian and Nutritionist who is passionate about young people enjoying food that makes them feel good, learn well, grow strong and succeed in sport.

In the 21st century we receive hundreds of messages about health every day. Drawing on her vast experience in Food, Nutrition and Sustainability, Sophie cuts through the noise to revel the key information and strategies students need to make informed decisions about what they eat.

Where were you born?

Melbourne.

What other jobs have you had?

I started out in radio before moving into hospitality and then found my passion in nutrition.

Right now I’m teaching students how to grow, harvest and cook delicious food through the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program.

What themes are recurring in your work?

Food, Nutrition, Nutrition for Learning, Nutrition for Sport, Nutrition for Wellbeing, Sustainability, Waste, Food Waste,  Food Systems, and Urban Farming.

What have been the highlights of your career?

I love my job. Every day I work with young people who are eager to learn. I haven’t met a student yet who wasn’t interested in food. One of the best aspects of my job is when a student finds a new food they like or discovers how nutritious food can enhance their performance in the classroom or on the sporting field.

What are you passionate about?

I’m passionate about the positive impact food can have on young people’s growth, learning, mental health and physical activity.

I love empowering young people to make informed choices about what they put in their body by translating the latest scientific evidence. My talks describe what nutrients the body needs to perform at its best, and I provide my top tips and meal ideas.

Anything else you’d like to share with us?

I have a Bachelor of Food and Nutrition (B.AppSC) and a Master of Dietics (M.Diet).
