HOW WE SUPPORT YOU

The best project you will ever work on is YOU.

It is important to remember that YOU are unique with health needs and taste preferences specific to you. We extend our services into more than one setting. We provide one on one consultations with individuals or families, in person or online. We invest a lot of our labour and time into corporate wellness events aiding companies whether it is to determine their employees’ health status or providing health and nutrition education. We also collaborate with medical aid schemes like Discovery Health in helping their members become healthier by incentivising their health achievements through the Vitality Wellness Programme.

Individual Consultations

These consultations and be provided in person or online via Skype or FaceTime, although online consultations will be limited to qualification criteria. You will complete a form beforehand which will tell us if we will be able to help you to the best of our abilities via an online session.

This is where a full dietary assessment (Anthropometry (weight/height/bodyfat percentage/circumferences), Biochemistry (blood work), Clinical and Diet history and Analysis) will take place. We get to know you better and we also look at those areas that we identify for you and you know you may need to work on. We determine goals and objectives and give you advice on small changes you may need to make without disrupting your family or work life. Throughout our sessions we aim to empower you with knowledge on how your body functions, your pre-existing condition and how nutrition can improve your quality of life.

These differ from person to person. Generally, an individualized meal plan will be handed out to you. We use an easy guide as a reference providing you with a framework to allow you to follow a meal plan that suits you. Further assessments and education will also take place.  We help you how to go shopping and what to look out for on the millions of food products available on the market tailored to your specific dietary requirements. We also discuss whether you may need some supplementation or review your micro nutrient intake in full. A follow-up consultation is strongly recommended.

GROUP SESSIONS

Individuals will be invited to attend group sessions of 6 – 12 members. The main aim of group sessions is to facilitate group assisted learning and communication, where individuals may benefit from each other within a support network. Here, the dietitian will only act as a facilitator. The group therefore learns from one another, sharing ideas, support and camaraderie.

FAMILY NUTRITION

Habits of individual family members affect those living in the same household whether they are good or bad. We learn from our family members the culture, traditions and habits that determine our food behaviour. We eat together as families. Food consumption is part of any household’s daily routine, so it is therefore important for us as dietitians to pull together the whole family and all its vital members when it comes to nutritional therapy. Having a strong support system at home can be beneficial in achieving most of your health and lifestyle goals.  We urge people not to cook for themselves a separate meal but rather incorporate everyone in the same household. Our offices allow enough space to accommodate 6 + family members, but we can also do a home visit if needs be in the George/Oudtshoorn area. Online sessions can also be made available.

COOKING CLASSES

We offer cooking classes in our dietetic practice to individuals and small groups. As dietitians we have a strong foodie background. How can we tell people what to eat if we do not understand the science and art of cooking real, healthy AND tasty food? A state of the art, modern, yet basic demo kitchen, is located within our office in George with magnificent views of the Moederkerk and Outeniqua mountains.

We don’t believe in gimmicks and fancy things! We take you on a journey of understanding all the fundamentals of cooking, how to plan and shop for meals, stock your pantry and fridge with affordable and healthy options and cooking nutritious meals for yourself and your family.

Putting the science of meal planning into practice can be a daunting task, but cooking for your family or for just one, must be easy and enjoyable. We invite you, your family and friends to join us. We also offer classes for domestic workers.
