My main area of interest is nourishing and educating our children and teenagers about the benefits of delicious and nutritious food, thus establishing good habits for life, (I have two boys, and I know only too well the challenges!). I specialize in fussy eaters and disordered eating throughout the life phases and use the latest evidence-based knowledge from lecturing on the topic. This links with my interest in the importance of women’s health, especially before during and after pregnancy and later in the menopause.
Other areas of interest include nutrition and IBS; weight management, diet/lifestyle and type II diabetes, and a balanced diet for the older adult. I offer a full 7 day (5 week days 2 weekend days) dietary analysis, using Nutritics software, www.nutritics.com which gives comprehensive report on food intake, and what steps you can take to improve it depending on your overall aims. Consultations include a holistic look at your lifestyle both mentally and physically and include advice on your PA (physical activity) levels. Although you ‘can’t run away from a bad diet’, the benefits of being physically active are proven, for both our mental and physical well-being.
Overall, I’m passionate about making food taste delicious as well as being nutritious and have an extensive collection of recipes and ideas to share, that cater for every palate and life-stage. I believe these are the real key to keeping up the variety and enjoyment of our food and provide the basis for making sustainable changes in your diet for life, as well as making sure you are well nourished and satisfied.
I have a consulting room (Shepherds hut) in Blewbury, but can also come to your home, ‘examine’ the contents of your fridge and cupboards and help you and/or your family to read labels and make better food choices that will help you cook healthier and tastier food.
