What We Do
Nutrition to You knows that you are busy, which is why we have knowledgeable and experienced Registered Dietitians come to you! Our Dietitians can meet you in your home or office or even in a quiet corner of a local coffee shop.
Nutrition to You provides clients across the Greater Vancouver area with current, evidence-based information on healthy eating and preventative nutrition; nutrition “basics” that are central to good health. Each of our Dietitians are experienced to help you achieve and maintain a healthy body weight and can support the lifestyle changes you seek in order to lower your cholesterol, reduce your blood pressure or bring down or stabilize your blood glucose (“sugar”) levels.
Who We Are
Nutrition to You has a Diabetes expert on our team who literally helped write the book on Diabetes care in Canada! Barbara Allan co-authored the Canadian Diabetes Association’s (CDA) official meal planning system, “Beyond the Basics” which received the prestigious Fredrick Banting award in 2007. Barbara also recently co-authored the Diabetes Prevention and Management Cookbook, also published in cooperation with the Canadian Diabetes Association.
Barbara also understands that even just finding out that your blood sugar is on the high side raises a lot of questions and you want credible answers. Barbara is very experienced and can help you implement nutrition and activity guidelines that are scientifically proven to delay or even prevent Type 2 Diabetes.

Nutrition to You also has a Dietitian who is specialized in eating disorders, including anorexia and bulimia. Amy (Yuen Ting) Chow served as the Dietitian at Canada’s first publicly funded Residential Center for Eating Disorders in British Columbia, working closely with the medical director, a research specialist in the area of anorexia and bulimia. Amy is experienced at helping people rebuild a positive relationship with food and themselves. To learn more about Amy, please click on our Eating Disorders expert.
Amy has also spent several years working with acquired brain injured adults and as a result has gained considerable experience with dysphagia (chewing & swallowing disorders). Amy helps support Nutrition to You clients, as well as their families and caregivers at home, once they’ve been discharged from hospital or from a rehabilitation center. To learn more about the support she can bring to you or your loved one, please click on our services or on the “Our Services” tab, above.
For Nutrition to You’s corporate clients, our mobile Dietitian will provide customized cycle menus for Residential Care facilities in accordance with the Residential Care Regulations of British Columbia and provides biannual and as-needed Menu Reviews (using Audits & More – A Nutritional and Food Service Audit Manual).
For people seeking extensive weight loss or for support with food sensitivities, food allergies or food intolerance, including irritable bowel (IBS) disorder, our founding Dietitian, Joy Kiddie can see you in our centrally located Coquitlam office. If you are concerned about managing your weight given the medications you are taking for anxiety, depression or ADHD, Joy can also help. She also provides nutritional support for healthy eating and preventative nutrition as well as clinical nutrition support for a variety of other conditions. To learn more about the services Joy provides, please click more information.
Our clients come from all walks of life; including busy professionals, college & university students, stay-at-home-moms, office workers & factory workers and others. What our clients have in common is the desire to make positive changes in how they eat and want the Dietitian come to them. We bring Nutrition To You !
