Kate Wengier is a dietitian with a passion for educating children to have a positive relationship with food and make family mealtimes more joyful. As a busy mother of four, Kate understands the stresses of life, work, family and healthy eating. Kate believes nutrition should not be so complicated, after all it's 'just food.' With over 15 years of nutrition and dietetic experience, Kate enjoys media work and has appeared on TV, radio and print both in Australia and overseas.

Ebbonnie Platt studied a Bachelor of Food Science and Nutrition, followed by a Masters of Dietetics at Deakin University. Knowing a traditional dietetics career path wasn't for me, I started exploring alternative options and landed a role with the Coles Graduate Program as a product technologies in the Own Brand team learning the technical aspects of food manufacturing and product development. Three quarters of the way into the graduate program I moved into the Cole Nutrition and Wellbeing role where I've been for the last three years supporting product development and innovation across the Own Brand portfolio as well as wider Coles supermarket nutrition initiatives.
