In-Home Nutrition Counseling Sessions
Sometimes, the best approach to making long standing changes to your eating and lifestyle habits is to have a trained professional come to your home to provide assistance. Our dietitians offer many services at our in-home consultations. At the heart of the home visit, is your personalized nutrition counseling session, where our nutritionist will assess how well you are eating and suggest a few changes that can help improve your results.
At your request, Jana and her associates will help give your pantry a makeover, suggesting food items that might provide a better “nutrition bang for your buck”. During this service, you will learn a few tricks for reading nutrition labels on foods and you will get a highly-individualized grocery shopping list of foods that will help you reach your nutrition goals. Clients that request this service oftentimes find themselves reaching their nutrition goals in record speed!
In Home Cooking Demonstration
In today’s fast paced world, it is sometimes difficult for busy professionals or busy families to find the time to cook. This time crunch, coupled with a lot of conflicting nutrition information and new “food rules” can make it difficult to eat and cook healthy meals at home. Whether you have high cholesterol or diabetes that you are trying to manage or are looking to help your family and yourself lose weight, Helping Hand Nutrition’s Registered Dietitians can show you how and what to cook in your very own kitchen. Before we come to your home, we will assess what level of cooking instruction is suitable for you, and will give you a list of grocery items (and simple cooking utensils) to purchase before your personal lesson. This lesson is generally one hour long and you will learn how to prepare numerous foods for breakfast, lunch, dinner and/or snacks. Our focus is to keep it simple and to empower you to prepare simple meals that you can do on your own after we leave.
