|How did you first hear about Healthy Eating Solutions (HES)?
We had been researching various providers for healthy eating workshops and came across the different workshops that Healthy Eating Solutions had to offer.
|What were your main reasons for choosing HES?
HES had a number of different workshops that could be delivered – it wasn’t just one standard training session which allowed flexibility to what is delivered to our business to ensure it suited our requirements. Rupert was also really helpful when it came to putting together quotes and session plans and it was really useful that we could negotiate prices to support our budget.
|Would you use HES again and why should another organisation use HES services?
Yes, we would use HES again. We gained really good feedback from the delegates who attended the sessions and they found Rupert to be a great, knowledgeable facilitator. The health and wellbeing of our employees is a priority and offering these workshops is one way we can support them.
‘HES was really engaging, we learnt lots about how to fit good nutrition into our working lives and the fact about brown bread has been shared a number of times…’
The only criticism was that our staff would have liked to have more time with you!
I have engaged with Rupert from Healthy Eating Solutions to plan and implement a series of Corporate Wellness Programs on Nutrition. Rupert is extremely professional and the feedback from the Nutrition sessions was excellent. Rupert is very professional and very knowledgeable on his subject. He presents as focused and relaxed and put across his subject area with ease. I hope to work more with Rupert and Healthy Eating Solutions more in the future
“We asked Healthy Eating Solutions to come to our office and deliver bespoke healthy eating initiatives at our Wellbeing week. Their service included the amazing smoothie bike which provided great tasting smoothies and hours of fun and staff engagement. They also delivered 2 Healthy Eating Workshops Nutrition for Health and Weight Management and Nutrition for Performance and Endurance. What we appreciated most about working with them was their ability pitch the nutritional information in a relaxed manner at the correct level for everyone to understand and enjoy”.
“I thought the talk was excellent, he was the right level of engaging for me. It was the right pace for me and he was very likable. The talk could not have been longer without creating a break but I thought what was covered in the time was very informative. The pack to take home looks very good as well, I have already followed him on Facebook. I would be interested in other event that he runs”.
“Rupert is a great teacher –energetic, funny and he knows what he’s talking about. Thank you for this initiative!
It was a very interesting session and definitely made me think more about the foods I eat”.
“I found the talk quite interesting and educational, It was very good food for thought ( Pardon the pun ). Rupert was a great host, easy to get along with, looking forward to his cooking demo.”
Rupert kindly came in and delivered an interactive session to my third year degree students at Nottingham Trent University. The session incorporated a variety of teaching methods, including a selection of tasks, group discussions and a short presentation. Rupert’s approachable manner meant that the students responded to him from the start and remained fully engaged throughout the session. The information presented by Rupert was informative, applicable and interesting. I hope that he will come back next year to work with my students again.
We used Healthy Eating Solutions for several health and wellbeing events. Not only are his prices very competitive, but the whole experience was brilliant! Rupert is passionate about nutrition and he involves people in a friendly and fun way, while providing sound advice and information. A pleasure to work with and I’d highly recommend him!
We hosted an event on Sat 24th, and really grateful that Rupert was able to accommodate us at short notice!
We were not disappointed as Healthy Eating Solutions were able to tailor a package for us that was very flexible.
The smoothies themselves were absolutely fab, and people attending the event were full of praise for the product.
We hope to use the service again!
Myself, colleagues and the service users all enjoyed the healthy eating activities that took place, which included the quiz, eat well plate and discussions relating to our diets. You have made a major different in my life so thank you as you have taught me lessons helping me reflect on how to eat healthy.
“Healthy Eating Solutions delivered a tasty and engaging Healthy Cooking Demonstration of a lentil Chilli Bean at the Medfest event. The audience were captivated and their questions were answered in friendly and professional manner. We hope to be working in partnership again ”
“Really enjoyable session and made me think about my lifestyle and the food that i was eating, and have decided to make a few small changes”
“i already knew some of the different categories of food, but the different activities that Rupert put on made me think even more and look at more labels when i go shopping”
“Rupert was a really nice, friendly funny guy who ran the workshop great and had outstanding knowledge to share with me and the other parents that attended the course”
“I really enjoyed the activities and was good to do it as a group so we all were able to share our views. Rupert made it really enjoyable and has tried a few of his healthier suggestions at home with the children”
Healthy Eating Solutions were invited by Shiefton to take part in celebrating Jamaica’s 50th year of independence.
The aim was to give participants the opportunity to combine pure juice, frozen probiotic yoghurt and fruit juice into a Smoothie- ummm very tempting. The thought of purchasing a Smoothie, on such a fairly warm day, appealed immensely to some, especially the children. Ah, but there was a catch. They couldn’t just buy a smoothie they had to work for it, which at first deterred participants from engaging. People stepped up to take challenge to see if they could make a Smoothie. For the more competitive ones it was how fast they could ride to make the Smoothie. Whilst for other’s it was the entertainment and the enjoyment of taking part that counted.
The Smoothie Bike went down a treat, literally. And to prove it – the evidence is there for all to see on Shiefton’s website.
There was apprehension concerning this nutrition talk, as one expects to be forcefully told the do’s and don’ts of our eating habits and lifestyle. With bated breath we sat anxiously awaiting our fates, but we were pleasantly surprised by the informative and interactive way this session was delivered and at a pace everyone could follow.
Some changes are definitely being put in place as it demonstrated we perceive to know everything, but in fact we were actually learning new things. Rupert can rest assured there will be some lifestyle changes.
Having Healthy Eating Solutions come into school for the morning was a fantastic end of term treat for both the teachers and the children! All of the kids had a turn peddling the smoothie bike and they all learnt something new. The healthy eating workshop is definitely something they won’t forget in a while, thank you Rupert for such a memorable morning!
Healthy Eating Solutions were professional throughout. The requested quote arrived promptly. The smoothie bike arrived with ample time to set up before the event started.
Excellent advice was provided by Rupert with regards allocating the correct timescale for our event to ensure that each child had an enjoyable time. The children thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and the fruity flavours of their well-earned smoothie drink.
It was fun, enjoyable and the children had a great time.
Excellent value for money
After networking with one of our academics, Rupert kindly offered to deliver an interactive presentation on his career to date and share his knowledge on working in the industry. Rupert delivered the presentation in an engaging, friendly manner and he encouraged the students to think about their potential career path and allowed the opportunity for (many) questions. The student were inspired and very much appreciated the visit from Rupert. We hope to see him back here in the future. Thank you!
Rupert came in to train our exercise referral staff on the principles of healthy eating, to enable them to provide appropriate healthy eating advice, to clients.
Rupert is a well educated and knowledgeable trainer who will tailor the session to your needs. We will use Healthy Eating Solutions again to train other deliverers in the future.
Cooking demonstration – Those attending the event gave very positive feedback and appeared motivated to make changes i.e. to reduce fat in cooking and to try out recipes. Demonstrator was very positive and enthusiastic about healthy eating and how small changes could make a difference.
