The Origin Story

Cape Dietitians was established in 2005 by Ananda, 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 and Kuils River practices on Saturday mornings.

Shana, Andrea and Christy are passionate about promoting and educating on medical nutritional advice to the people of the Northern Suburbs, Western Cape. Their goal is wanting to better your quality of life, empowering you with healthy lifestyle choices and balanced nutrition.
