Our Mavens


I want to support as many mums as possible to find a connection with themselves, thereby allowing a stronger connection with their children and a healthier lifestyle for the whole family. From this place of connection with your own inner wisdom, life becomes easier, more joyful and loving and daily stresses are not as significant.

Joey De Backer

dietitian | Holistic nutritionist | mindfulness leader

Joey is an accredited practising dietitian, holistic nutritionist, mindfulness leader and mum to 2.5 year old, Isla Rose. Joey is passionate about helping mums eat well without the need for fancy ingredients and even much nutrition knowledge. She believes that bringing mindful awareness to your body is the most important way to eat and live well!

Her philosophy on food and health is: whole foods, eaten mindfully and joyfully. Her favourite foods are black forest cake, mangoes and artichokes. Joey loves creating simple recipes to inspire use of seasonal and whole produce, while educating people on mindset – the power of our habits and beliefs. Joey has experience with food intolerances, having been through the process of exploring these with her own daughter.

She now supports many mums, babies and children through the elimination diet process to help improve behaviour, sleep, skin issues such as eczema, migraines, learning/attention difficulties and digestive problems. Joey also loves supporting mums to achieve a healthy weight without dieting or deprivation.
