School Programs

Less movement, poor food choices, hidden sugars, disrupted sleep patterns and social media ‘madness' is not only affecting young people’s bodies but research is increasingly showing it is affecting their mood and ability to cope with simple daily stresses, school work and friendships.

A school can build resilient children, a school can provide excellent academic teachers, and your school has the ability to create leaders, creative thinkers and athletes; however it is impossible to do any of that without underpinning young adults with good nutrition which supports all aspects of their health…

Their physical body, mental awareness and emotional wellbeing.

Nutrition for Teenagers

It is exciting how schools are really embracing the wellbeing of our children and teenagers and School Nutrition Programs and teenagers’ diet is an extremely important topic. These young people are faced with mental, social, and emotional challenges daily and if they have a solid healthy foundation they are able to cope better with life’s challenges.

Accomplished speaker Michele Hedge is a Nutritionist (Adv. Dip of Nutritional Medicine, Australia Traditional Medicine Society) and published author and a dynamic health advocate. Nutrition for teenagers is an extremely important topic for Michele, particularly as she has three teenagers herself.

As a nutrition speaker, Michele is in demand as schools realise the importance of teenage nutrition and how a teenager’s diet affects their lives daily. And her nutrition presentation has a positive effect on the teenagers. Michele looks at the use of nutrient-dense, whole foods as the basis of mental and physical stability.

Flourishing and Nourishing in a Changed World

Michele’s vision is to educate, inspire, and connect your Teachers, Students, and Parent Communities with the science of wellbeing. Michele is an international author and presenter to corporates and schools and education is her passion. It is time to look up, look out and flourish.

As a former teacher, Michele is aware of how educators are often experts at nourishing the world but overlooking themselves. As a mother, Michele is far too aware of the impact of food on students' mental resilience and physical energy. Michele has combined her nutritional medicine studies with her formal Positive Psychology diploma to craft an enjoyable and informative program for teachers, staff, parents or student.

    “Michele came to our school and did a captivating presentation to our senior students. Her ability to relate to the students and staff that were present was remarkable. She immediately engaged the whole auditorium in her advocacy of a low sugar/wellbeing lifestyle with simple ideas and changes that we can make to our everyday lives. The feedback from the students was that it definitely made them think about the tiredness they were feeling and how to improve their relationship with the food they were putting into their bodies.”
