Alimenta is a unique diet and nutrition consultancy providing specialist knowledge to the media, companies and individuals.
Founded in 2000, alimenta was set up by Lynne Garton, a Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist, who having worked in both the NHS and corporate environments, identified a need for a nutrition service that can provide credible, independent dietary advice to promote positive health and well-being.
Lynne originally qualified from King's College, London with a first class Honors Degree in Nutrition and a Postgraduate Diploma in Dietetics (passed with distinction and winner of the Van Den Berghs prize) in 1990.
She began her Dietetic career at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, London before moving to St. George's Hospital, London where she practiced as a Cardiothoracic Dietitian. Following these acute positions she moved into Primary Care as a Community Dietitian for West London Healthcare NHS Trust. Seeking experience in the commercial environment, Lynne then became a Product Manager in the pharmaceutical industry where she was responsible for launching a range of medical nutrition products to healthcare professionals. During this time she gained her Advanced Diploma in Marketing (CIM).
Passionate about communicating the role of good nutrition towards positive health and well-being, Lynne set up alimenta. Since its inception, Lynne has been involved in a variety of projects with publishers, newspapers, TV production companies, PR and communication agencies, food companies and caterers.
Lynne strongly believes that a nutritious, balanced diet is the cornerstone of good health. However, as a working mum herself, she appreciates that this can be a challenge to achieve in our busy and hectic lifestyles. For this reason Lynne's philosophy is to provide nutritional advice that is based on sound science, yet is practical and realistic for today's way of life. This approach, along with her experience and active membership of the British Dietetic Association, Nutrition Society and American Dietetic Association, makes Lynne a well respected figure in the field of nutrition.
