Lunch and Learn Presentations

Lunch and Learn classes are formatted for group presentations and are the perfect way to guide your employees to better health!

They will not only learn what to eat but will master when and why they should eat specific types of foods!

Each Session will be 60-75 minutes in length including time for a 30-45 minute presentation, Q&A, and hands on component. All seminars include the option of adding a hands-on food demonstration and recipe tasting of healthy meals in a FLASH or Superfoods for an additional fee based on expected participants.

Your program may consist of a series of quarterly initiatives with incentives for employee attendance. Participants can attend multiple lectures, which will build off one another yet if an employee is only able to attend one, they will be able to catch on to the core concepts presented. Each lecture will be unique in content and will include components of healthy eating and lifestyle changes that are applicable in daily life. Participants will learn a minimum of 3-4 take-home messages at each lunch and learn and will go home with a minimum of 2 recipes and 2-3 handouts from each session.

Often corporate wellness strategies focus on initiatives related to fitness such as gym memberships and fitness classes but neglect to focus on nutrition, which is one of, if not the biggest challenges influencing the health and productivity of employees.

Our monthly Nutrition Club is a new and one-of-a-kind successful, ongoing initiative that builds engagement and consistency for “walking the talk” for wellness in your organization. 

The monthly Nutrition Club started off as a one-year pilot project at a major Calgary-based oil and gas corporate office and due to popularity and growing membership we are now planning our third year. Feedback from attendees suggests that the facilitation of timely, relevant topics by an expert as well as group sharing was a great combination. Feedback from management suggests the success of this program was because it was ongoing each month and having one facilitator rather than many ensured consistent, non-conflicting information was offered to employees.

Nutrition Club is structured similarly to a book club with set and facilitated topics including collaboration and group sharing. Topics are chosen based on health risk assessment data, biometric screening results and employee interest. Each month club members also receive articles, recipes, podcasts and videos relevant to the topic to further expand learning. Monthly Nutrition Club can be facilitated onsite in a local Calgary, Alberta based office or alternatively by webinars.

Benefits:

  • Consistent, credible facilitation that really gets to know the group and dive into challenges and issues in greater depth over time.

  • Information that targets the top health concerns influencing employee health, disease management and workplace productivity.

  • Relevant topics driven by employee interest, requests and common health issues such as those shown in your company biometric screening and health risk assessments.

  • Employees are actively involved in sharing successes, group support and learning from each other, which creates cohesion, health leaders and mentors within your own organization.

  • Change is hard and this program focuses on ongoing support that builds over time, which is necessary to truly shift and sustain change.

Sample topics:

  • Nutrition to lower your blood cholesterol (or a family member’s!)

  • Nutrition for reducing your blood pressure (or a family member’s!)

  • Anatomy of a food label

  • Nutrition for weight management

  • Ideas on how to get more fruits and veggies into your diet

  • Popular diets and the science of carbs, protein and fat

  • Healthy meal planning for busy people

  • Eating out the healthy way

  • Sports nutrition strategies for fitness enthusiasts

  • February is heart month! Heart health nutrition

  • March is nutrition month. Ask any nutrition question in this “Ask the Dietitian” session

  • What, when and how much to eat

  • Kids, tweens and teen nutrition

  • Top 10 weight loss tips

  • Shift work survival
