Our Registered Nutritionists

Edwina Revel- Nutrition Director

BSc, MSc, RNutr


I have over 20 years' experience, gained from working in the early years. As manager of the Early Start Nutrition team I am proud of the evidence based early intervention and preventative services we provide in the field of maternal, infant and toddler nutrition. I enjoy developing nutrition training and parent resources which supports professionals and families to provide children with nutritious foods, inspire fun and engaging cooking activities and encourage healthy habits from an early age; at nursery and at home.

Georgia Leech- Senior Nutritionist

BSc, RNutr


I'm the Senior Nutritionist specialising in maternal and paediatric nutrition. I’ve worked in early years nutrition for over 10 years and enjoy delivering nutrition training and support to early years practitioners. I love having the opportunity to visit settings and see first-hand how they implement best nutrition practice! I especially love creating themed recipes to share across our social media, along with developing recipe videos for our Eat in With Early Start series on YouTube.

What Clients Say About Us Here at Early Start Nutrition

Helen Clark

Lead Author for The All Party Parliamentary Group on a Fit and Healthy Childhood

"If child health and fitness is to become a reality for all children, regardless of their family situation, geographical location or economic circumstances, parents, carers and health and education professionals require support and encouragement. The pilots, schemes, written information and overall example set by Georgia and Edwina goes some estimable way to achieving this ideal. I applaud their work and am extremely grateful for their interest in, and contribution to, the work of our APPG".

"The Early Start Nutrition Team are a group of dynamic Registered Nutritionists. Over the past few years, the Team has been regularly supplying evidence-based, practical articles to CN Magazines. All their articles are informative, educational, well written and comprehensive. We very much value the Early Start Wellbeing and Nutrition Team’s contributions to CN Magazines and thank them for sharing not only their remarkable knowledge surrounding nutrition, but best-practice too – long may this continue."

Matt Govett

Director, MA Exhibitions Limited

"The expert team at Early Start has delivered numerous  live cookery demonstrations at our shows and most recently  at the Nursery World Show in London. Their presentations  were lively, informative and engaging and always provided  inspiring, practical advice and guidance for visitors. With all  the challenges faced by nurseries to provide healthy meal  options and to encourage all children to eat better, Early  Start’s approach is exactly what the sector needs to support  best practice and educate nursery providers about effective  approaches."

Nutrition Webinar Parent

Georgia and Edwina ran a fantastic session (Toddler Meals and Snacks) with lots of information and great tips for parents to use. I also really liked the snack ideas/recipes which sounded fantastic, as I sometimes make the same things so good to get some new ideas of foods to offer my youngest child who is a fussy eater. They also went through all the questions at the end. I have been on quite a lot of webinars at this point due to lockdown, and I have to say that it was brilliant! I will recommend to other parents.
