Vinka Wong

Functional Nutritionist

Vinka has always loved food- eating it, talking about it, cooking it and growing it. Its her passion and obsession! When she had children she used the opportunity to retrain and learn everything she could about nutrition. She is now a Clinical Nutritionist based in Matamata.

"Coming from a Croatian family, it really is impossible not to fall in love with everything about food- growing it, cooking it, and eating it. It is in our blood"! This wee obsession delivered Vinka into the perfect job as a Nutritionist where she gets to help people become healthy through good food choices. 

"I also get the privilege of being the Nutritionist for the Cuisine Magazine, how cool is that!?!I am on a mission to help as many people as I can also become obsessed with good food!"

Vinka works with digestive issues, autoimmune conditions, thyroid issues, skin problems, hormonal imbalances, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.
