| CHRISTMAS PRIZEAPOLOOZA 2019 | Jenny Webber Nutrition

Jenny Webber Nutrition is a great little business that more people need to know about! She offers nutrition consulting as well as food education for children and adults.

Jenny is a University qualified Nutritionist and Food Technologist. She says that unfortunately the industry isn’t government regulated and therefore anyone can call themselves a Nutritionist. But, she is registered with the Nutrition Society of Australia and only those with qualifications such as hers can do so. This is assurance that Jenny know her science and will only provide you with the latest scientifically proven advice.

In 2020 Jenny is launching her very own program, Sprout Food and Nutrition Education. This amazing program is aimed at children aged from 2 to 6 years, with further programs to be released for primary school aged children in the near future. It is a hands on food and nutrition education program in Child Care Centres, Early Learning Centres and also private classes (to be announced in the new year). The program is centered around teaching children to have a positive relationship with food in a fun environment with their peers. The reason this program has been designed is that in the latest HealthStats records for NSW (2017-18) it showed that only 9% of children aged 2 to 8 years were consuming enough fruit and vegetables. Research shows that getting children involved in a fun and interactive environment to learn and experience new foods enhances fruit and vegetable intake.

{The Nest Can Cook} Bringin’ salad back…

Hi, my name is Kayana and I am addicted to mason jars. Well, actually jars of all types.

I take responsibility for my addiction, well, I blame Pinterest and all other websites that make them look so bloody cool.

The best thing about them is their ability to be used for food. Here is one of my new favourite finds to help bring salad back.. -> Buzzfeed – Mason Jar Salads
