Nutritionist, entrepreneur and author.


Claire Turnbull is a qualified nutritionist, entrepreneur and author who wants to help people to be the happiest, healthiest versions of themselves so that they can get the most out of life. She is the owner and director of Mission Nutrition, a nutrition practice offering personalised nutrition advice, workplace wellness programs, workshops and supermarket tours. She also actively engages with the community through her cooking classes and events.

Claire trained to be a dietitian and fitness trainer in the UK and her approach to health and happiness is practical, inspiring and realistic. Her aim is to make it easy to live well - she really wants to help people to make changes that last so they feel good and look good for life! With a very hectic work schedule and a toddler, she practices what she preaches and is a living example of the principles she espouses.

Claire travels throughout New Zealand and internationally as a speaker, inspiring people to eat well and take better care of themselves by sharing her practical ideas on happier, healthier living. She is an incredibly motivating, passionate speaker, who will light up any conference or event.

Current work

Claire has a health and fitness show on Newstalk ZB with Danny Watson and does regular interviews with Radio NZ, Radio Live and Rhema. She often appears on TVNZ’s shows Breakfast and Good Morning, and provides expert commentary for the news and current affair programs on both TVNZ and TV3. Claire has also filmed two prime time television shows, Do or Die and Saving Gen-Y.

Alongside Claire’s media work and her nutrition practice, she is also the nutritionist for Healthy Food Guide Magazine and AUT Millennium.

Having moved to New Zealand ten years ago, initially to work for the not-for-profit organisation Diabetes Auckland, she is still actively involved in community projects to help make a real difference. She works with Monty Betham on the Steps for Life program based in South Auckland and has also teamed up with Brett McGregor to deliver inspiring videos to help school children learn to eat well.
