Diet & Nutrition Seminars

Some of our seminars & webinars:

Nutrition for Wellness

Food has become a modern dilemma. We have a greater variety of food than ever before, yet diseases resulting from poor food choices are on the rise.

We all know how hard it can be to fit in a healthy meal during a busy work day, and it’s all too easy to grab a salty, fatty or sugary snack on the go. Most of your employees don’t realise that their highly processed treat is only slowing them down in the long run.

Some great news is that healthy foods and a balanced diet can significantly improve workplace productivity.

The Nutrition for Wellness seminar covers:

What’s wrong with our diet?
How can you improve your diet?
Nutrition label
Tips for weight loss

Our fully qualified Nutritionists will then provide practical advice on how to improve health behaviours.

The seminar is delivered onsite, while the webinar is presented online. Both are presented exclusively to your employees, by qualified professionals.

Healthy Food Fast

How is it that many of us seem to know what we should be eating, yet we still don’t always eat healthy?

The main barrier to good nutrition is not so much a lack of nutrition knowledge, rather it’s a “how to” knowledge – how to cook quick, good, healthy food after a long day at work.

This seminar/webinar aims to address this by providing information and tips on how to get healthy food fast. It covers the following topics:

Planning and shopping – speedy staples and foods to avoid
Cooking smartly –doubling up and using leftovers
Adding fast flavour
Quick dinners for when you haven’t planned anything
Best breakfasts and healthy lunch ideas
Snack attack – smart snacking to get you through the work day
Eating out

The seminar is delivered onsite, while the webinar is presented online. Both are presented exclusively to your employees, by qualified professionals.

 

Food for Thought

We know how essential good food is for our physical health, but what about our mental health? This seminar explains how and why a healthy diet is vital for the brain too, and gives proactive tips and guidelines on how to eat for your brain.

Food for Thought Topics Include:

How the right food choice can affect memory, learning and mood
The best brain foods
Ideas for better brain meals and snacks
Simple rules to get the maximum nutrients from your everyday meals

The Food for Thought seminar also covers the way diet can impact on one of the most prevalent of today’s mental health conditions, depression.

It addresses:

The facts on the links between diet and depression
Why certain dietary patterns can protect against depression
Why some carbohydrates are necessary for better mood and memory

The seminar is delivered onsite exclusively to your employees, by qualified professionals.

Facts on the Back

This seminar is all about food labels. It helps employees make sense of the numbers and values on the back of packaged food items, and explains what they really mean, and what to look out for. It cuts out the confusion and stress involved with making the right decision at the supermarket. Participants will come away with the ability to make better, more nutritious food choices.

The qualified Nutritionist or Dietician will explain:

What the numbers mean
What to look for
How to read ingredients properly
How to read and compare serving sizes
Energy/protein/fat/carbs/sugar/fibre/sodium

The seminar is delivered onsite exclusively to your employees, by qualified professionals.

 

Why a healthy diet promotes a more productive workforce

We all know that what we eat has a big impact on our weight, our sense of wellbeing and even our risk factors for certain illnesses – but did you know that the foods we eat also have an effect on our work performance?

When you eat well, your body processes the nutrients and maximises your brain power and mental performance – on top of that, your concentration, alertness, problem-solving skills and productivity are all improved.

Taking action to create a healthier workplace builds a foundation for success, reducing costs associated with sickness and improving company performance.

Our fully qualified Nutritionists will then provide practical advice on how to improve health behaviours
