Keeping Well @ Work 
Long days at the office and mounting deadlines can put healthy eating on the back-burner. In this talk, we’ll look at what constitutes a ‘Healthy’ diet - which healthy foods you should eat and why, why you should avoid certain unhealthy foods and the best breakfasts and lunches to eat for optimal energy, mood and productivity. Our most generic introduction to all things nutrition, this talk will finish with a round-up of tips for a healthy and happy workplace.


Boost your Brain Power 

Research shows that the food you consume is one of the most powerful influences on everyday brain skills. Get smart on foods and nutrients that will sharpen your mind and your mood, starve off Alzheimer’s (and other forms of dementia) as well as exercise and meditation techniques to keep your brain at the top of it's game. 



Our qualified nutritionists and health coaches work with your staff on a 1-on-1 basis, confidentially coaching them through health and nutrition concerns, helping them set realistic and attainable goals for improved health and diet. Diet will form a major part of our conversation, but we'll also look at the whole spectrum of wellbeing, discussing the client's stress levels, sleep patterns, exercise regime and any other health and lifestyle complaints. Consider these consultations a personal 'MOT' helping your staff live their lives with optimal health and vitality.


Clients will be asked to complete and return a confidential health history form prior to their session. Consultations can take place in a small, quiet meeting room. When booking, we request a minimum of 4 sessions and maximum of 10 sessions in 1 day. 


Our corporate nutrition programme has been designed to guide your staff towards the healthiest food choices to boost brain power, improve mood and keep sick days at bay. Working with our team of nutritionists and health coaches we offer the following workshops, cooking demos and 1:1 consultations.

Participants will leave with a handout and a suggested shopping list
