As a Registered Nutritionist, keen to reach out with helpful nutrition advice, I work with individuals of all ages, deliver informative events and support nutrition learning in schools. Crucially all my advice is evidence-based which you can read more about here. To find out more about my background, training and my nutrition philosophy please head to my About page.

NUTRITION TAILORED FOR YOU

We each have Nutrition needs unique to us. My advice is tailored for you –  different genetics, lifestyles and food likes/ dislikes all need to be considered in advising the best nutrition for your stage in life. Understanding how nutrients are used, and the influence of your gut health to benefit your over all health and wellbeing, form the ‘grass roots’ of my advice. Building on this, together we work towards best health for you and your family.

HOW WE WORK TOGETHER

During Covid19, we meet online (this was always preferred for convenience anyway!) about an hour. I listen to your questions and understand what you would like to achieve. I learn about your lifestyle and food choices, then we discuss some initial ideas that will work well, taking into account your preferences. 

Inform: As a Registered Nutritionist my approach is always using best possible practice with evidence-based nutrition advice, always practical for your situation.

Inspire:  It’s very important to me to help you sustain the changes we’ve made together and inspire you to keep going! One session may be all you need to reboot but I keep in touch with remote support for as long as you find helpful. Please get in touch!

EVENTS

During Covid-19 I’m continuing these events online, from my kitchen to yours! Please visit the Gut Café to find out more!

Fascinated by nutrition but too busy to find the time to read more? Take time out with friends and enjoy a unique venue while I share with you current evidence-based nutrition and we all enjoy good food. Often based around the concept of gut health and always inspiring!

From coffee shops to converted greenhouses I’m always looking for new venues! Please do get in touch.

SENIOR SCHOOLS – WHY?
Sixth Form Lectures, tailored for Med, Vet, Dent, Science & Geography students, exploring Food security, Global health, Biodiversity, Sustainable food production, the influence of Epigenetics and the Microbiome on health, and Nutrition for Disease Prevention.

Between 11-18 years good food choices are key to cope with the high nutrient demand during growth and development. Equipping teens with the knowledge to fuel themselves correctly, builds resilience and nurtures wellbeing. (2)

Calcium intake is below the minimal level in 20% of 11-18 year old girls, yet bone density reaches its maximum by 18 years of age. Iron intake is below the minimal level in 54% of teenage girls, red meat intake is low and iron is poorly absorbed from plant sources which can lead to tiredness and anaemia. (1)

PRIMARY SCHOOLS – WHY?

With 8 million children in Primary School every day in the UK, schools are a great way to reach out and support children and their families in choosing healthy lifestyles. 22% of children are overweight or obese at 5 years and 34% by age 11. (Public Health England, 2016) Exercise is just as important as nutrition – the recommended amount for primary age children is 60 minutes/ day. Research in The British Journal of Sports Medicine has recently linked increased attainment at GCSE level in children who have good levels of physical activity by age 11.

HOW WE WORK TOGETHER
It would be a pleasure to work with your school community in promoting the health and wellbeing of the pupils in your care, through engaging workshops and practical advice sessions to parents. For more information about this and Sixth Form lectures, please call to discuss your requirements .

SPORTS

Adequate nutrition is essential in meeting the requirements of rapid growth and development at this age. Add to this the demands of sport and we can understand just how vital nutrition is! A diet containing at least 50% carbohydrate with every meal is crucial at this age to support physical exercise and growth – if energy intake is inadequate, body protein may be used to bridge the energy gap. Likewise, high protein diets considered beneficial for sport require adequate carbohydrate intake, to ensure the additional protein can be metabolised effectively.
