Good nutrition starts right from the beginning…

Evidence shows that the earlier healthy eating habits are established the healthier a person remains.  At Foodtalk, we offer bespoke and off the shelf early years interventions with an aim to creating a whole systems approach to health.  We have trained hundreds of early years professionals and worked with thousands of families to establish lifelong healthy habits right from the start.

We provide the following training for Early Years Professionals:

    • Nutritional guidelines for under 5’s
    • Implementing voluntary food & drink guidelines for Early Years settings e.g. ‘Eat Better, Start Better’
    • Fussy eating and managing mealtimes
    • Prenatal, Antenatal and postnatal nutritional guidelines
    • Introducing solid foods (weaning)
    • Raising the issue of weight and brief interventions to health
    • Vitamin D guidelines for early years

We also work with local authorities, children’s centres and early years settings to provide family based interventions on the following topics:

  • A 3-week introduction to weaning programme for mums and babies
  • A 6-week healthy cooking programme for families
  • A 6-week physical activity and nutrition programme for young families

Fighting the uphill battle…

Childhood obesity is one of the biggest public health epidemics to face our nation.  At Foodtalk, we are passionate about developing innovative and evidence based solutions to try to tackle the rising tide of weight in children.  We work with Local Authorities, schools and Public Health teams to design health promotion interventions to meet local needs ensuring those at greatest risk are targeted.

Over the last 10 years we have designed, implemented and evaluated Tier 1, 2 and 3 weight management interventions in over 10 London boroughs.  

We work with a variety of stakeholders and partners  to ensure that the programmes we deliver align with local strategy and are designed with full input from service users.  Having worked with thousands of families we have a strong understanding of the barriers towards achieving success and have developed unique and evidence based solutions to overcome them.

If you would like support in any stage of design, implementation or evaluation of your weight management intervention please contact us and we would be happy to discuss how we can support your needs.
