wendy jeffry

Lane Cove Nutrition has opened in the arcade opposite Coles. Wendy Jeffrey is the owner of Lane Cove Nutrition and brings over 20 years experience having worked as an accredited practising Dietitian (APD) in clinical settings, in the food industry and was trained in the UK and Canberra in diverse fields from food allergies through to Sports Nutrition.  Wendy is a Lane Cove local and a mother of three, and knows that telling someone what to eat is a small part of effective dietary advice.
Wendy says “I am passionate about helping people discover the right dietary solutions that meet their own personal needs. Whether it be specialist advice for people with diabetes, dealing with fussy eaters, nutrition regimen for athletes or just practical advice on cooking and shopping better; everyone needs a tailored approach and that’s what I will be offering to Lane Cove residents”

Partial rebates for dietetic consults are available though Medicare and most private health funds also offer rebates. Referrals are not needed

On this day they will have two make up artists come in from Napoleon Perdis to apply make up on clients. We will be taking bookings from 8:30am-4:30pm. The cost will be $100 fully redeemable on Napoleon Perdis products. You can come in any time throughout the day for tips and tricks on how to apply your make up. When you spend $89 or more on Napoleon Perdis products you will receive a complementary make up application that you can book in for at any time. We have a loyalty Starr Card which you can gain points on throughout the store including Napoleon Perdis products. Every $1 spent on store items you get 1 point towards your card*. One you reach 245 points, you get $10 off your next sale. *Excludes dispensary items

  1. Thanks for mentioning us. So happy to see that Lane Cove is continuing to grow – such a shame that some have had to go though. Question – do we have to see the nutritionist and visit the swimwear shop before we decide to dine at those yummy cafes? 😀
