PERSONALISED NUTRITION

Nutrition needs are unique depending on your genetic make-up, age, lifestyle and food preferences. My recommendations are tailored for you. Understanding how nutrients are digested, absorbed and used by your body, as well as the concept of energy balance, form the ‘grass roots’ of my advice. Building on this, we then work together to achieve your aims …

… whether in controlling body weight without dieting, improving your wellbeing through nutrition, understanding how to truly eat a health-promoting diet, managing food intolerances or perhaps you’re a parent like me and would like guidance on your children’s nutrition. 

HOW WE WORK TOGETHER

We meet for about an hour. I listen to your questions and understand what you would like to achieve. I learn about your lifestyle and food choices individually and/or as a family, then we discuss some initial ideas that will work well, taking into account your preferences and practicalities. Depending on your location we can also meet by Skype or Facetime.

Inform: I produce a detailed plan tailored to your needs, based on our first meeting.

Inspire: A chance to meet again to follow up, discuss any new questions you may have and inspire you to keep going! It’s very important to me to help you sustain the changes we’ve made together. I keep in touch with remote support for as long as you would like to recieve it.

PRICING

My pricing is flexible and varies according to your level of need. See which option below suits you best, or contact me to discuss a custom pricing plan.

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.

SENIOR SCHOOLS – WHY?
Children between 11-18 years undergo many physical changes; an appropriate diet is key in their development now and as they mature. Equipping teens with the knowledge to fuel themselves correctly builds resilience and wellbeing.

20% of teenage girls are deficient in Calcium because of reduced milk intake, yet bone density reaches its maximum by 18 years old. (1)
22% of teenage girls are deficient in Iron because of low red meat intake yet Iron is poorly absorbed from other sources, leading to tiredness and anaemia.

Confusion over food choices can progress to anxiety around food. Rates of anxiety in 11 – 18 year olds have doubled in the last 30 years.

SENIOR SCHOOLS – WHY?

Children between 11-18 years undergo many physical changes; an appropriate diet is key in their development now and as they mature. With confusing healthy eating messages ever present in the media, I believe it is more important than ever to help teens understand how to fuel themselves correctly, make good lifestyle choices and so build their resilience.

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 for pupils aiming for Med, Vet, Dent or Science careers,  please get in touch.

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.

I am especially enthusiastic in working with 11 – 18 year olds who are very active in sport.
