Earlier this week we introduced you to NutriWerkz – a nutrition consultancy and cooking school formed by two accredited Clinical Dietitians, Michele Wong and Charmaine Toh. Formerly from a hospital setting, both Michele and Charmaine are motivated to venture out of the hospital environment to focus and work on preventative health through nutrition. Established in September 2015, NutriWerkz focuses on four main groups:
- Parents and children – education and reinforcement of clean eating habits for healthy growth.
- The general public – preventive health cooking classes.
- People with chronic illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, cholesterol and kidney problems.
- Homebound or bedbound patients on tube feeding.
Did you know, for a child to practise and maintain a healthy diet through to adulthood, healthy eating habits have to be instilled in him from pre-school age? Otherwise, the older the child is, the harder it is to break his unhealthy diet. A research by Growing Up In Singapore Towards Healthy Outcomes (GUSTO) shows that it can take as long as 13 years to break children's bad eating habits.
NutriWerkz not only offer nutrition planning and services, but they also facilitate nutrition-related team building activities as well as cooking classes for the health-conscious. Recently, CaregiverAsia attended one of their culinary sessions – umami cooking class – to experience the simplicity of making nutritious meals from scratch. For those who didn't know, umami is a savoury taste and often described as pleasant or meaty flavor. Michele started the class by sharing interesting nutrition facts and the science behind palates as well as a taste test, which we thought was fascinating. To share this great experience, we've got a short video just for you! Thanks NutriWerkz for the informative class.
