My passion for food and nutrition developed at an early age. My mum was a great home cook and we always enjoyed delicious meals made from scratch! Although tidying up after her tasty creations was always a mammoth task!!!
My career has been spent working between the public and private sector, gaining knowledge in all different aspects of the food industry. During my career I have worked with children and young people in both residential and educational settings. This gave me a huge insight into healthy eating and how food made a big impact on our children’s life’s both at school and within their home life. I gained a greater understanding of the importance of a well-balanced diet and the need to educate not only our children but also the wider community.
Later in my career I worked within community projects where at first hand I witnessed that food was not always readily available to all and people’s perception of health eating would have financial constraints attached to them. Working closely with different people and families I learned that some don’t have the facilities to cook or they may have the difficult decision to either choose between heating their home or buy food for themselves. This inspired me to further enhance my skills and develop my knowledge around not only the impact of nutrition on our health but also our mental health.
Through developing my skills and learning it became apparent that what we consume to fuel our bodies has a huge impact on our emotional wellbeing. This enabled me to understand how food can impact in either a positive or negative way on our wellbeing which affects our daily lives.
Unlike other addictions such as cigarettes & alcohol which can be totally removed from your day to day life, food unfortunately can’t. This is one of the reasons we need to build a healthier relationship with food and our eating habits.
