I feel the best way to help to shape the health of the next generation is via education. Education enables empowerment. Food doesn’t just fill us up it shapes our every movement, action and emotion. Understanding all of this (at a basic level) is the key to being as in control as you can be of your own health journey.
|My CPD Goals||
To make nutrition education accessible and reflective of the real impact which food has on our physical and mental health. To make biology fun and ultimately, to help to shape the health of a generation.
I am a writer on health and nutrition (book, articles, media). I have a radio show 'Food For Thought' on Teacher Hug Radio and I am an Early Years Nutrition Consultant, working on menu development and nutritional education.I have experience as a Personal Trainer so understand the importance of physical activity for health. I worked with adults on 1:1 Nutrition Coaching for many years before I specialised in early years nutrition in 2018 when I researched for my book – How Food Shapes Your Child. We can prevent some of the issues adult face with health and/or the food relationship if we address the food and biology link early on.

I aim to make biology and knowing our own body as much fun as possible, the human body is fascinating but we are in a scary situation with our health. I hope to be able to positively influence the health of a generation via nutrition education.
