Food Allergies & Intolerance
Do you suffer from bloating and IBS? Find you react to certain foods? Suffer from Migraine? Then you may already be cutting out certain foods to help find a cure. This presentation looks at the whole topic of food intolerances. We look at the most common intolerances, including dairy and wheat, how to spot intolerances as well as the best tests to choose when you want to get some definite results. We also look at the many myths around food intolerances; the unreliable tests that are out there and how many of the conditions often associated with food intolerance can actually have other causes.

The First 1000 Days
The first 1000 days refers to the first 3 years of a baby’s life – from conception to the age of two. This time is now recognised as crucial for a child’s development and in deciding the diseases they may or may not develop as adults. Learn about the key nutrients needed before conception (for potential mums and dads), what to eat during pregnancy and the key foods to focus on in the toddler years. An introduction to weaning is included as well as the opportunity to ask questions about issues specific to you.
Healthy Eating for Babies and Children
Starting from weaning through to early teens, this talk looks at the best ways to get your kids into healthy eating habits. Learn about the key nutrients Irish children are missing out on and benefit from practical tips and ideas on dealing with fussy eaters. The talk also focuses on how helping children to have a healthy weight.
Eating for Digestive Health
There are few of us who haven’t had a tummy upset at some stage, but for some of us digestive problems can go on and on. This presentation looks at many of the common digestive problems from heartburn and reflux to bloating and cramps. Learn what foods to eat and what foods to avoid, what supplements can help and how to manage your eating habits to get a sluggish digestion back to work. Rediscover how well and energetic you can feel when your digestion is working as it should.
Change Your Habits, Change Your Weight
When it comes to weight, most of us only look at the food we eat. What we eat – and how much we eat – is certainly important but did you know that how you eat has as big an impact on your weight as anything else? This presentation takes a lively look at the habits that can make or break your weight. Learn the top 10 habits you need to be a healthy weight. Learn how to lose weight and how to keep it off. Get off the diet treadmill and learn the habits that can help you get to and stay at your ideal weight
Run Further, Run Faster
What you eat can have a huge impact on performance in all sports. Running has become one of the most popular sports in Ireland and everyone is looking for that extra edge. This presentation takes a look at the foods, supplements and fluids that can maximise your performance, boost recovery after training and even help you to run faster for that next event. We also take a look at the world of sports supplements and help to sift the fact from the hype.
Stress, Nutrition and How to Manage
Stress can affect anyone and can leave us feeling tired and run down. Good eating habits can fall by the wayside and we can find ourselves feeling tired and lacking in energy. Stress can also lead to weight gain as we look to unhealthy snacks for an energy boost. Learn how to manage stress by looking at what you eat. Learn how to avoid common problems linked to stress such as indigestion and how to keep weight healthy during stressful times. Find out what supplements can help and when and how to use them. Help to boost energy levels and keep your immune system in good shape.
Manage Your Mood with Food
As we become more aware of the role of nutrition in health, we are learning more about how food not just affects us physically, but how it can affect our mood. Manage Your Mood with Food looks at ways of using food to help keep us feeling our best. Get tips on how to eat to manage stress, look at some of the latest results on research into food and problems like depression and learn how to boost your focus and concentration with the right foods. A basic overview of what the body needs is given with sections dealing with specific issues related to managing stress and mood.
