Once every eight weeks, I offer my services for FREE to a qualifying school, pre-school, play scheme, family centre, parent craft group or family charity/community group in the Dorset and Hampshire areas.
I believe that good health is a human right and the tools and knowledge to work towards it should be made available to every one. I am happy to work with your organisation to provide an audience and/or curriculum appropriate workshop or health talk to inform parents and practitioners. Examples include:
Why children eat what they eat. What influences what a child eats and how this shapes their adult health and eating habits
How to help your child have a positive relationship with food and encourage body positivity
Fussy eating and neophobia, why it is a normal stage of child development and how you can support children through it
Understanding the nutritional needs of your child from birth to adolescence to ensure optimum physical and intellectual development
Meal planning, cooking on a budget, food label reading workshops and physical activity guidance throughout childhood
Causation, prevention and management of childhood obesity
Developing and maintaining weight management programmes for children and families with a particular focus on behavioural change
Pre and post natal nutrition, including optimising nutrition for and during breastfeeding.
