I have recently taken part in a workshop led by Penelope on nutrition and the immune system.  It was very interesting and I learnt the benefits that different food groups provide and how to include them into my diet.  We looked at eating habits and portion sizes.  I was provided with very useful links that will help me to use the knowledge I gained.  I would certainly recommend this workshop to anybody interested in ways to gain an understanding of different food benefits and ways to introduce them into your meals“.

” I found the fussy eating workshop really helpful as it provided me with strategies to help my child overcome fussy eating. I felt supported and listened to by Penelope who understood the difficulties I faced”. Thank you!
