Dietitian Spotlight

As the food and nutrition experts, dietitians are passionate about improving the health of Nova Scotians. Spotlight on is one way that DNNS showcases the talented dietitians in our province and the many ways they are working to improve the wellbeing of their communities.

Spotlight on:

Michael Manderville, RD, BScAHN, BKin, Pn1

Michael works primarily in private practice in Halifax and Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, as well as virtually across the province. He specializes in health-focused weight management, chronic disease prevention and management, and exercise and sport nutrition. With a previous degree in kinesiology, Michael knows the importance of a health approach emphasizing both physical activity and nutrition. He is currently pursuing his Master of Applied Human Nutrition along with building his website and business, Habitrition (The Habit of Nutrition);


Through his education, Michael became fascinated with the science of behaviour change and how it relates to what and why we eat. This fascination bloomed from reading books like The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg and The Hungry Brain by Dr. Stephan Guyenet. He believes that dietitians are uniquely positioned to directly impact the health and wellness of all Nova Scotians.

When not working, Michael is either reading about philosophy, writing, or walking the trails of Point Pleasant Park with his wife Malia, and his Nova Scotia Duck Toller, Betty.
