“Like water, love and oxygen, we cannot live without food. Unlike water, love and oxygen, we get to choose the kind and quality of the food we fuel our bodies with. A choice that's guaranteed to have an impact on the longevity and liveability of life”

- Dr. Michael Mol (MBChB).

Cape Dietitians was established in 2005 by Ananda Pieterse, opening 2 private dietetics practices in Brackenfell and Kuils River (Kuilsrivier). Shana Terhart Young joined the team in 2015, heading up a new dietician practice in Edgemead, located near Monte Vista in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town. Since then the practice has expanded to include Andrea Jacobs, a clinical dietician who sees both in and outpatients at the Kuils River practice and Kuils River hospital, and Christy Greener, a passionate private practicing dietician who sees patients at the Brackenfell, Edgemead and Kuils River practices.

Although Ananda is no longer a practicing dietician in the Western Cape, Shana and Andrea carry on her vision to promote and educate on medical nutritional advice to the people of the Northern Suburbs.

Shana, Andrea and Christy are passionate dietitian and nutrition experts, wanting to better your quality of life, empowering you with healthy lifestyle choices and balanced nutrition.
