Rebeca Wijkstra

My name is Rebeca Wijkstra. After a successful internship from the Nutrition & Dietetics study program at the Hogeschool van Arnhem and Nijmegen, I am also working in practice.

In the third year I took the minor ‘the child in the center’. During this minor I learned a lot about the treatment of various syndromes in children. During the treatment process, the child was central and the child looked at the various treatment options. I have also developed myself further into having difficult conversations with children and their parents. During the training I gained a lot of knowledge about the treatment of various target groups. From children to the elderly and from general healthy food to nutrition in the event of illness. During my internship period I applied this knowledge and further developed it. 

In March 2017 I followed the training of Harriët Verkoelen and in May 2017 I followed the training of Yvonne Lemmers, both focused on low-carbohydrate food. In November 2017 I attended the children and overweight training, so that I can better help and stimulate this target group. 

My working days are Monday to Friday and then I work at various locations throughout Apeldoorn, Vaassen and Wilp.
