School Wellbeing Workshops 

 

“Teach a child about healthy eating and you feed them nutritiously for a lifetime”

With a burgeoning national epidemic of childhood obesity, the answer isn’t to give up, what’s needed is education. Parents are increasingly looking to schools to provide life skills that not only they may be lacking themselves but to ensure their child has a healthy future. In a time poor society, we are simply not taking the time to pass on skills required for good health – and without health we are nothing…

Healthy habits start at a young age…

Through engaging workshops, I promote discussion within the group while providing education on

 the importance of nutrients in the diet

 the importance of preparing homemade meals,

 what to look for when choosing what to eat/ how to read food labels,

 why physical exercise is about how it makes you feel rather than look

 how quality sleep is a key component to success

 why having a growth mindset allows us to take responsibility

All which provide the perfect platform to foster optimal learning and brain health
