Our dietitian team have provided leading aged care nutrition services for over 20 years to many aged care groups over NSW and QLD. As part of our commitment to excellence, we have demonstrated success with improving the quality of life and health of residents while also reducing the spend on supplements and health care costs for our aged care homes through Lantern Alliance research studies at Bond University.

“Our strategy is two-fold:
Improve quality of life by improving resident health and
Improve facility efficiency and cost effectiveness.”

Dr Cherie Hugo, Director of My Nutrition Clinic and Founder of Lantern Alliance

The Lantern Approach

Our innovations can bring wide reaching benefits


    We have demonstrated through research and practice an evidence-based, systematic way of delivering food-first strategies to not only drive malnutrition-related impacts down (e.g. falls, pressure injuries, unplanned weight loss, hospitalisations) but reduce burden on catering teams and deliver a return on investment for aged care organisations. Contact us around our Transition Off Supplements Program today to see the benefits across your organisation.


    Through Cherie Hugo’s PhD research and Lantern Alliance learnings, we are leading the way in finding innovative solutions to malnutrition and the associated health care costs in aged care facilities.


    We offer education programs for your staff and residents with each of our service packages.


    Signing up to one of our 12/24 or 36 month nutrition service packages means we can pass on significant discounts on our normal rates.


    Food and meal times can make or break a resident’s day. The dining environment is pivotal to the success of mealtimes. Through our Lantern Alliance research we continually identify and demonstrate low cost measurable solutions which will lift the mood of residents and staff. 


    Our quality nutrition service packages provide fantastic value for money. In addition to significant discounts on our standard consultation fees, aged care homes can access a range of our complimentary nutrition services through our packages which are geared to upskill staff, improve communication and ensure resident nutrition care is second to none.
