Special Olympics Ireland
Did a fabulous talk for Special Olympics Ireland with one of their athletes and the participants of the fundraising event for Cork Mini Marathon. Got a great response from participants when I started probing deeper into how to create more lasting sustainable changes in their health.
“I asked Lucy to deliver a talk on heath and nutrition as part of a fundraising programme for Special Olympics. She delivered an insightful and engaging interactive discussion that captivated the minds of the participants while also giving practical information on how to choose healthier eating and lifestyle habits. I would recommend Lucy 110% and hope to work with her again in the future.”
Lynda Foley, Special Olympics, Regional Fundraising Coordinator, Munster
Lucy’s delighted to work with food companies on bringing health into the centre of a products marketing strategy.
She has worked with companies such Urru Bandon, College Dinners and Newgrange Oil on their marketing and promotional work.
Newgrange Gold worked with Lucy in the development of a range of top quality oils and dressings (www.newgrangegold.ie)
Lucy appeared on Nationwide as the Newgrange Gold Nutritionist, discussing the heath benefits of oils.
Newgrange Gold Nutrition Club
I had so much fun with Deirdre, Diane and Catherine doing this 4 week ‘Healthy Eating with Oils’ programme with Newgrange Gold. I find that cooking and using plant oils for health is one topic that confuses many people.
However, working with the Newgrange Gold Rapeseed and Camelina oils, we came up with the ‘Nutrition Club’ idea and over the 4 weeks we learnt and shared how to use, store, shop and cook with oils so that the health benefits could be maintained.
I was impressed that the health benefits of the oils, such as reducing digestive disturbances, managing cholesterol levels and improving family health, could be experienced within such a short time.
Lucy worked with College Dinners to inform and educate students on the role of food and nutrition in health. They provided students with good quality ingredients to students to enable them to cook at home and create their own meals. (www.collegedinners.ie)
