Monique Piderit: Transforming lives through nutrition and passion

With over 14 years of experience as a registered dietitian, Monique stands as a beacon of expertise and compassion in the field of nutrition.

Reflecting on her career, she emphasizes the joy of witnessing positive transformations in her clients’ lives. She advocates for balanced meals and personalised nutrition plans tailored to individual needs, debunking common misconceptions about dietitians abstaining from indulgence.

Monique’s commitment to staying updated on the latest nutritional trends ensures that her clients receive evidence-based advice tailored to their unique needs.

Driven by a profound realisation of the impact of nutrition on daily life, she embarked on a rigorous educational journey to become a registered dietitian. Her experiences, from working in a TB hospital to establishing her own private practice, have shaped her holistic approach to nutrition counseling.

Today, she is a vital part of Nutritional Solutions, where she continues to make a difference in the lives of her clients.

Balancing her professional commitments with family responsibilities is no easy feat for Monique, but she draws inspiration from her husband and two young boys.

Her dedication to Little Kickers, a family-owned venture, reflects her unwavering commitment to both her career and personal life.

‘Looking ahead, I am excited about the future of Nutritional Solutions in Joburg South, with plans to expand my expertise in sports nutrition and leverage digital platforms for education,’ she says.

Taneesha Murray: Empowering health through nutrition

Taneesha, another passionate dietitian at Nutritional Solutions, brings her own unique perspective and dedication to the field of nutrition.

Inspired by her upbringing in Alberton, where food was a symbol of love and connection, she knew from a young age that she wanted to pursue a career in dietetics.

After completing her education at the University of North-West and her community service in 2021, she has thrived in private practice, empowering individuals to make better food choices to promote overall health.

She advocates for portion control and balanced meals, emphasizing the importance of incorporating fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. She addresses common misconceptions about carbohydrates and highlights the importance of gut health for overall well-being.

‘Personalised nutrition plays a crucial role in helping individuals achieve their health and wellness goals by tailoring dietary recommendations to each person’s unique needs, preferences, and goals,’ she says.

In her personal life, she finds solace in relaxation, preferably by the pool with a glass of wine. Despite facing challenges such as job scarcity after community service, Taneesha’s resilience propelled her to acquire new skills, shaping her determination and resourcefulness. As she continues her journey in the field of nutrition, Taneesha remains committed to empowering individuals to lead healthier, more fulfilling lives through personalised nutrition guidance.
