Children face many new challenges with regards to staying healthy that their parents and grandparents haven’t had to contend with before. Food advertising, the marketing industry and food production have become sophisticated, and children are a targetable marketing segment.

Sadly, however, manufacturers don’t have the most proactively health promoting foods as their mission in life. Instead they would like to produce food that sells and to a degree as in the case of foods with a high sugar content, can become addictive. Children have to navigate through a multitude of choices when it comes to food.

Not surprisingly, kids health is deteriorating rapidly with chronic disease on the rise.

It is therefore important that schools educate children about food choices and nutrition early on in life to empower them to make their own choices without following the marketing claims of the manufacturers.

Food and exercise are the two very important components when it comes to staying healthy and are the choices individuals can make.  I offer food fun activity for primary and secondary schools, covering all age groups from pre-school onwards.  My sessions gently encourage children to think about the content of what they are eating, and factor in the importance of staying active. I also promote the consumption of fruit and veg, alongside a reduced intake of sugar. Sessions are fun and interactive, incorporating question and answer sessions, games and prizes.

Children are introduced to tasty healthy alternative to the snacks they may currently be eating, and also learn through hands-on techniques, the nutritional content of what they are eating and how this can impact on their body. The foods we are exposed to can have a lifelong effect on our eating habits.  It is my aim to nurture children to slowly start to think about possible changes they could make, and steer them towards a future whereby healthy foods become and normal and expected part of their everyday diet.

The problem as explained by Jamie Oliver. Kids are often not aware of the variety of fruit and vegetables available to them. Our mission at ‘thenutritionhealer’ is to get kids interested and motivated to try new fruits and vegetables. The packaged food marketeer knows  that the tastes of childhood are the ones to stay with the children over a life-time. So we make sure that these tastes come from fresh fruit and vegetables not packaged food.

Course: Stress Management

“Essential self-management skills to combat stress and improve wellbeing”.

Avaialble to two groups: Secondary schools ages 11-18, and Adults (Prents and Teachers)

Stress can be detrimental to health and is the number one reason for work absenteeism. Everyone experiences stress at some point in his or her lives. We are generally ill prepared to cope pro-actively. Hence people are prone to falling into bad lifestyle habits, be it drinking or food binges, even drugs and mostly suffering the stressful period alone which not only affects the individual but also the environment around us. It is therefore important to teach children that there are options, that stress does not need to be a default setting and that the desired state of happiness is achievable. There are 2 sets of lifestyle choices; some which help build resilience and create happiness, and some choices, which do not help at all. This course is raising awareness and builds a toolbox of options, which the children can use now and also gain access to as adults.

The Healthy Habits Class (Primary Schools)

There is an array of un-healthy foods being marketed at kids and kids pester parents to buy these. Most importantly, the taste of childhood stays with the person all the way through adulthood and packaged food marketers know this very well. The healthy eating club for primary school children is a small attempt to get kids excited, knowledgeable and interested in real unadulterated food. This club is hoping to provide a balance to the unhealthy food choices generally and easily available.

Healthy Habits is a curriculum based activities that link with the concept of healthy eating. My input will be to visit your school, and run a hands-on session with up to 30 children at a time. The session would involve tasters (optional) and associated questions and answers eg is this taste sweet/sour, followed by games and activities, and then finishing with a nutritional quiz. The session would take approximately 35/40 minutes.

  • The course schedule is adaptable to schools needs
  • Individual class

Organic Fruit Delivery for Schools                                    

 Organic fruit contain more disease and stress fighting anti-oxidants than non-organic fruit.

Oxidants are to be avoided as they start the degeneration process in the body. Oxidants multiply fast and to stay healthy this process must be stopped. Stress, toxins and bad life-style choices can cause oxidants to multiply fast.

Anti-Oxidants are GREAT at fighting oxidative de-generation. They help with stress management, feelings of wellbeing and the building of resilience!

Organic fruit not only have more anti-oxidants than non-organic fruit they also contain less toxins! Altogether a win/win combination for kids.
