It’s a wrap! Totally LOVE my Job. What a couple of busy and fun weekends it has been. I’ve been able to share important nutritional messages and steer the direction of a great show. From advising on scripts, researching ideas, analysing recipes and being on camera it has all been something fabulous. Huge thanks to my tribe who support me and are just there. Encouraging me, pushing me to do more and helping with the logistics. Big thanks to a wonderful team at RDF Bristol who have been so kind to me and held my hand. Then of course special mention to the troublesome duo Gregg and Chris. It’s been a breathe of fresh air and a headache all at once ?. This type of work is a total position of privilege and blessing to do this kind of work and I don’t take it for granted. #itsawrap #filminglocation #filmingwork #tvdietitian #tvnutritionist #dreamteam #lovemyjob #greggwallace #dietitianuk #chrisbavin #newseries #ontvsoon #mediawork #igdietitian #priyatew

Inside Priya’s personal life

The single mum of three had all of her children over a very short space of time.

Speaking to Asian Voice, she explained the difficulty of juggling motherhood with a professional career that demands TV appearances and lots of out-of-office hours.

She said:

Family life has definitely been the biggest obstacle. In the past eight years, I have had three babies and breastfed for over four years and been pregnant for 27 months. Having small babies has made it a lot harder to travel to meetings and to be away from home overnight. I have had to turn down work but it has also meant I have found ways to work creatively.

MY BABY IS 3 ? ? ? ? When people say “it goes in a flash enjoy every second’ they aren’t lying (but that phrase super annoys me, how about “have as much fun as you can and stay alive through parenthood”?). ……….. Happiest of birthdays to this sassy, curly haired, wild child wonder who lights up the world and brings joy daily. She didn’t want a cake but helped make #birthdaybiscuit with strawberries on the side. Then in true toddler style refused to eat any and told me “I don’t like cake but I like cupcakes” ???‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ ……….. #birthdaygirl #todayiam3 #3yrsold #mygirl #happybirthday #toddlerbirthday #wildchild #gingerhair #auburnhair #toddlerdays #myhappycapture #parentinglife #mumlife #parentinghumor
