Nourish Dieticians provides many of these wellness services within their Corporate Wellness Days. Our services include:

1. Healthy Cooking Demos
Pick a topic of your choice and we will select quick, easy and delicious recipes to cook for your employees. The employees will receive tasters, copies of the recipes, as well as valuable information on the presented topic. Popular demos that we have presented:

  • Smoothie demo
  • Salad demo
  • Healthy dinner demo
  • Healthy lunch box demo

2. Healthy Eating Display
This is a popular option for a wellness day. Employees view the display table, get educated on healthy choices and behaviours around eating (at home and at the workplace) and get to have their nutrition related questions answered. This option can also include:

  • Simple individualised eating plans
  • Simple smoothie demos
  • Healthy lunch box or entertaining demos

3. Weight Loss Packages and Competitions
Nourish Dieticians runs an 8 Week Group Weight Loss Program that works well in the corporate setting. This can be run as an individual challenge or as a group challenge (for example have 10 teams of 6 employees and the group that loses the most gets a prize). The competition can be also be run on a one-on-one basis. Here each employee has an initial consultation with one of our dieticians for an individualised eating plan, and thereafter has weekly or bi-weekly follow ups for advice, motivation and measurements

4. Canteen and Vending Machines – Ideas and Menus for Healthier Options
One of the most successful ways to create workplaces that encourage healthy eating behaviours is having a healthy canteen and vending machine foods. There should be plenty of healthy food options, which are affordable, clearly labelled, tastefully prepared and situated at eye level at the counter. The healthy food should also be priced lower than the less healthy items. Similarly, foods served at meetings should also be healthy and interesting. Nourish Dieticians will assist you to make these positive changes.

5. Monthly Newsletters
Monthly newsletters featuring wellness information (interesting articles or snippets, success stories, healthy recipes) is a fantastic way to keep employees motivated to continue healthy eating/exercise behaviours. Nourish dieticians will supply articles, recipes etc. for your newsletters.
