Schools Nutrition

The team have worked with over 50 primary and secondary schools across London, delivering a range of group education and cooking sessions for staff, parents and pupils. We have received excellent outcomes from these sessions with parents knowledge increasing by around 43% following pre and post training analysis.

With the release of the governments Childhood Obesity A Plan for Action in August 2016 there is recognition now more than ever of the important role schools play in supporting healthier eating and physical activity. A new voluntary healthy rating scheme for primary schools will be introduced in September 2017 which will recognise and encourage efforts to prevent obesity. The Early Start Wellbeing and Nutrition team can support your school in planning health and wellbeing activities across your setting.

Wellbeing in the Workplace

Wellbeing at work is a business critical issue as a happy, healthy workforce increases business potential and productivity. It’s a fundamental responsibility of all employers to ensure their staff are given the opportunity to make healthy changes.

Is your business looking to run a health event or simply looking to boost the wellbeing of staff? Our team can deliver interactive talks and workshops to your employees on the role of a healthy diet and physical activity play in improving health, wellbeing and productivity. Previous clients have run breakfast/ lunch workshops for employees or one to one consultations where we offer tailored advice for individuals.

The Wellbeing and Nutrition Team offer a comprehensive menu analysis service using the latest nutritional analysis software. We can provide advice and guidance on how to improve the nutritional quality of your recipes helping you to achieve a more balanced and healthy menu.

Leaflet / Resource Development

Are your service/ company looking to develop bespoke nutrition resources such as leaflets or posters? Our team can develop resources to support you in delivering clear messages to your target audience. We have experience producing a range of resources that are suitable for multicultural communities and for a variety of audiences. Please click here to see examples of leaflets we have produced (i.e. show Vitamin D/Iron leaflets).

In House Training

While the majority of our clients book the training courses outlined on our training page, we understand that sometimes organisations prefer to book bespoke training. We can tailor our trainings to meet the needs and objectives of your business and deliver it in-house making it more accessible for your staff.

Testimonials

"I am delighted to recommend the work of Edwina Revel and Georgia Leech from the London Borough of Newham Nutrition and Wellbeing Team.

Edwina and Georgia are enthusiastic, deeply committed and extremely authoritative and dynamic members of The All Party Parliamentary Group on a Fit and Healthy Childhood, co-Chaired by Jim Fitzpatrick MP and Baroness (Floella) Benjamin. Officially constituted as an APPG by the Houses of Parliament in 2014, the Group has swiftly gained a reputation as one of the most influential such affiliate bodies in Westminster. To date it has published seven reports that have reached a wide national and international audience, with serious interest from mainstream and specialist media. Some issues raised in the reports have been considered by Ministers and officials, discussed in Westminster debate and have appeared in the manifestos of  the Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat parties at the last two General Elections. Our wide membership includes representatives from industry, the voluntary sector, health and educational professionals, local government and senior academics as well as media concerns. We feel that we have advanced the cause of child wellbeing  and fitness for lifelong health and the ultimate goal of a truly productive adult society both now and in the future.

Edwina and Georgia have contributed much to this work; especially in material content as submitted to our reports ‘Physical Education’, ‘Maternal Obesity’ and ‘Physical Activity in Early Childhood’ (currently in production). They attend our wider speaker meetings regularly and have established proactive and mutually beneficial relationships with other members and concerns linked to the APPG. I have been especially impressed by the quality of their well-researched written papers that have contributed greatly to our reports as mentioned. Whilst underpinned by excellent and demonstrable academic research, Edwina and Georgia always have a practical impetus to their writing. What matters is ‘what works’, ‘what has been proved to work’ and ‘what can be usefully adapted to suit other organisations in related circumstances.’ Theory is bolstered by practice and I am delighted that the work that is being  done in Newham, pioneered by Georgia and Edwina, is proving  to be a  blueprint for other authorities to follow and adapt to suit their own circumstances. Edwina Revel and Georgia Leech have ensured that their London borough is a pioneer and child champion in the every best sense.

If child health and fitness is to become a reality for all children, regardless of their family situation, geographical location or economic circumstances, parents, carers and health and education professionals require support and encouragement. The pilots, schemes, written information and overall example set by Georgia and Edwina goes some estimable way to achieving this ideal. I applaud their work and am extremely grateful for their interest in, and contribution to, the work of our APPG."

"The Early Start Wellbeing and Nutrition Team are a group of dynamic Registered Nutritionists. Over the past few years, the Team has been regularly supplying evidence-based, practical articles to CN Magazines. All their articles are informative, educational, well written and comprehensive. We very much value the Early Start Wellbeing and Nutrition Team’s contributions to CN Magazines and thank them for sharing not only their remarkable knowledge surrounding nutrition, but best-practice too – long may this continue."

Faye Telford-Penfound, Publisher CN Magazine

“It was so useful to have Edwina attend our team meeting. She was clear and informative and was able to tailor the training session according to our needs. The hand-outs are great for us to give to the parents who we work with. Thanks, Edwina”.
