Biography

Dr. Mannion’s program of research addresses questions pertaining to maternal/child health and dietary intake during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Dr. Mannion is an Academic Affiliate of Dietitians of Canada. Underlying her research is the premise that dietary intake while meeting physiological needs, is a behaviour that is governed by belief systems. Her past work includes maternal restriction of dairy products and the use of over the counter medications during pregnancy and lactation; the maintenance of breastfeeding, purported dietary cures for cancer and most recently the practice of pica by pregnant women.
