Testimonials

“I thought the training was really useful with a good blend of information and group work….I would definitely recommend the training to others. It was nice to see a cross section of professional groups too. I hadn’t realised that malnutrition was as prevalent as it is and it is very encouraging that there are user friendly tools to help identify those at risk as well as tips on how to combat it”.

“I now feel more confident about what elderly people need to eat to be healthy. I think I would now recognise if someone was malnourished” 

“I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say how much I enjoyed your recent Zoom training. It was my first venture into a Zoom experience and I was impressed.  I liked the variety you introduced eg different rooms, videos, whole group.  It seemed very slick!  Well done”.
