Nutrition & Lifestyle

CONSULTING

ICT

In any environment and challenge, we believe it is important to address three key areas, people, process and technology.

We make it our business to understand each of these, how they are related to one another and how they fit together as part of your overall organisation.

Our customers can choose where in their thought process they require our engagement, whether that is to work with them to design a solution to a problem or implement a new emerging business requirement or to help identify organisational and operational efficiency savings.

By being closer to our customers we can better understand their challenges and objectives. With this deep understanding of their business needs, we believe that we have the right balance of skills to tailor our service offerings to create a truly collaborative partnership.

Lifestyle & Nutrition

Nutrition


By following a healthy diet and lifestyle you can help maintain or improve your general health. The benefits are many and include feelings of well being, improved mental and physical performance and prevention or management of conditions such as obesity, heart disease, hypertension and diabetes.

Opting for a balanced, adequate and varied diet is an important step towards a happy and healthy lifestyle.

By teaching your children healthy eating, activity and lifestyle habits and modelling these behaviours in yourself, you can help you and your children maintain a healthy weight and wellbeing. Also the eating habits your children pick up when they are young will help them maintain a healthy lifestyle when they are adults.

Registered dietitians are qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition problems at an individual and wider public health level.

Uniquely, dietitians use the most up to date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease which they translate into practical guidance to enable people to make appropriate food and lifestyle choices.

Healthy Lifestyle, Healthy Kids

The aim of the Healthy Lifestyle – Healthy Kids framework is to help achieve a key outcome of the Every Child Matters framework:

“Be healthy: the importance of eating sensibly, staying physically active and getting enough rest”

The framework addresses the following key messages:

    bullet Meals of the day
        the importance of spreading nutrition throughout the day

    bullet Portion size
        the importance of a well-balanced meal

    bullet Five a day
        the importance of consuming at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day

    bullet Fat / Sugar
        the importance of controlling daily fat and sugar intake

    bullet Activity
        the importance of sustaining an active lifestyle

The healthy kids framework aims to encourage children to embrace healthier lifestyles through an embedded approach, which fuses education with entertainment.

Furthermore, the framework presents an innovative approach towards tackling health education amongst children thus helping to address health issues, which affect children directly.

There is growing concern today over childhood obesity, which can lead to chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer later in life. It’s important that we address these issues early on in order to help promote a much healthier society. Our modern lifestyles can mean that we are a lot less active in our daily lives. With the likes of Television, the Internet and computer gaming, coupled with convenience and fast foods that are available, we tend not to be as active or eat as healthily as we could.

Business Process Management

The first step in defining any solution is to ensure that it is the right fit for your organisation by understanding your business and the key drivers for success. Our consultants will:

1. Evaluate your business in order to develop the 'As Is' picture by evaluating the business processes coupled together with organisational roles / responsibilities, and a Systems overview

2. Use workshops and one to interviews to understand the business drivers and define the critical success factors
- Develop the draft 'To Be' operating models
- Produce recommendations and options for a way forward
- Work with you to choose the right way forward for your business

Depending on this phase of work, a tailored delivery solution will be created for you, typically based around the following steps:
ICT
- Solution Design

Each phase of the methodology is designed to interface with the different elements of your solutions lifecycle.
