Kirstin Wingate

MSc, RD

Kirstin is a Registered Dietitian who works part time at the BC Children’s Hospital and also provides private nutrition consultations to the Fairmont Pediatrics patients. She works with babies, children and teens to improve eating and nutrition, and to support overall health. Her areas of expertise include: diet assessments, helping babies and young people with poor growth or poor intake, picky eating, introduction of solids to infants, celiac disease, GI conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, food allergies, tube feeding, and general healthy eating. 

Kirstin completed her education at the University of British Columbia and her dietetic internship at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. Since 2016, she has been working as a dietitian at the BC Children’s Hospital. 

Kirstin lives in Vancouver with her husband and son who was born in 2021. Becoming a mom has given her a new understanding of the day to day joys and struggles parents can face raising their children, which helps her support the families in her practice. 

Kirstin has a sweet tooth herself and understands the joy of eating a good chocolate chip cookie. The question Kirstin gets asked most often when a stranger learns she is a dietitian, is “what one food do you recommend I eat?”. Of course the best answer to this is a boring answer: balance is the key to health, and there is no one single food you have to eat.
