A free healthy-eating webinar presented by Mel Bald – AKA The Passionate Nutritionist – is set to launch in Geelong next month.
The Geelong-based nutritionist has a background in clinical nutrition, corporate health, sports management and health coaching.
She also has two teenage boys, which has given her an insight into the trials and tribulations of preparing food for varying tastes.
“Often people know what they need to do to eat healthier – it’s how to do it and stay on track which is the tricky part,” she said.
“Good nutrition starts with better habits. In this webinar you’ll learn how to form new habits and change negative habits, which will result in making healthy eating easier.
“The knowledge you learn will help you work on your individual goals, whatever they may be.”
The council-supported webinar airs online on October 11, for National Nutrition Week running October 10-16.
Participants will also receive a free hard copy of council’s Eat Well, Live Well toolkit, including meal plans and recipes to develop healthier eating.
Increasing healthy eating among greater Geelong residents is one of five health and wellbeing priorities identified in council’s Our Community Plan 2021-25.
