Joy Y. Kiddie, MSc, RD


I’m Joy Kiddie, a full-time Registered Dietitian (RD) with a post-graduate degree in Human Nutrition. I have been in private practice in Coquitlam, British Columbia since 2008, and have provided virtual services for over a decade to those living locally, and in other areas of the country.

With licenses in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario, I provide routine services including healthy eating, weight management (loss or gain), improving high cholesterol, blood sugar and pressure, diabetes management, improving fatty liver disease, and conquering food cravings.

My expertise extends to digestive health.  I provide support for individuals with food allergies, food sensitivities, as well as those newly diagnosed with celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, or various types of colitis.

I offer customized support for women’s health, designing Meal Plans for prenatal care, PCOS, and menopause management. Additionally, I provide comprehensive services for men’s health, with nearly half of my clients being men. In addition, I develop personalized Meal Plans for older adults, focusing on maintaining muscle and bone mass.

With years of experience in therapeutic ketogenic diets, I design Meal Plans as adjunct treatment in specific physical and mental health conditions.

I am honored to have been recognized as one of Coquitlam’s top three businesses for weight loss in 2024 and I am very appreciative for the consistently high reviews I have received on Google over the last few years for a wide range of services from approximately 60 of my former clients. I continue to strive for excellence in the services that I provide my clients.

I believe that there is no one-size-fits-all approach, but that Nutrition is BetterByDesign©.


I specialize in multicultural Meal Plans and have in-depth knowledge of the food and cultural practices from many regions of Asia and South Asia, North Africa, the Caribbean, Middle East and the Mediterranean.


I offer three categories of services.


I provide routine services for healthy eating, prenatal and postpartum nutrition, weight management (loss or gain), and improving metabolic health, including addressing high blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. I support various dietary approaches, including low carb. 

Additionally, I offer nutrition education sessions covering a wide range of topics, including managing symptoms of GERD, gout, diverticulosis / diverticulitis, hiatus hernia, kidney stones, migraines, Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism, and enhancing iron status through dietary means.

Published Researcher

I was the lead researcher on a clinical research study in mental health nutrition about the dietary intake and nutrient status of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It was published in the International Journal of Pediatrics and to date has been cited in over 60 other research publications. The link is available under the “About Me” tab.

Food for Thought is where you’ll find the most recent of the ~200 referenced articles that I’ve written about various topics in my areas of practice.
