We have a trained nutritionist who can support whānau and individuals in a number of ways to improve their nutrition and help make better lifestyle choices.
Key components include:
Tū Māia Rangatahi Workshop Series
Our nutritionist delivers a series of nutrition workshops down at the Tū Māia Rangatahi Hub in Kōpeopeo. There are two workshop streams – one is directed to rangatahi through our YEP programme and another is open to the community. Dates for these workshops are advertised on the Tū Māia Rangatahi Facebook page and all are welcome to attend.
We understand that not everyone can attend our workshops held down at the Rangatahi Hub. Therefore we offer tailor-made workshops for community groups, organisations, businesses, schools etc. who are wanting nutrition advice and support.
Working with whānau
Our nutritionist works one-on-one with whānau and individuals to help them on their kai journey. Whether they are looking for one-off advice, an eating plan, shopping tips, weight loss guidance or specific on-going support and monitoring for a health condition, our Nutritionist is available to help.
Kai is so much more than just the foods that we put in our mouths. Our nutritionist uses a holistic approach to nutrition that takes into account whānau values, world-view, life-style, culture and whānau situation. It is a unique approach that focusses on the whānau as a whole and is inclusive of all aspects of life.
To sign up or find out more about the Tū Māia Rangatahi workshops please contact or enquire down at the Hub, otherwise all enquiries regarding our nutrition services can go directly to our nutritionist.
We have a specialist service for tamariki (2-14 years old) and rangatahi (15-18 years old) who have been classified as obese. Read our Healthy Lifestyles service to fund out more.
