Life cycle nutrition

Adults

Also in adulthood, diversified and balanced nutrition defines and sustains our well-being and health as well as prevents premature aging. Nutritional and energy needs vary among individuals and are contingent on age, health condition and gender.

Moreover, appropriate nutrition is of great benefit at the outset of illness and particularly, while trying to cope with it.

We offer professional advice on nutritional planning and improvement of your eating practices.

We devise a suitable nutrition plan, based on your needs, capabilities and wishes. 

Women

The nutritional needs for women vary widely at particular times of life. A properly selected food plan can beneficially affect woman’s well-being also during the periods of menstruation, pregnancy, breastfeeding and menopause. This can help substantially with symptoms of PMS/PMT, and is especially beneficial in supporting both mother and child during pregnancy and lactation, and later on helps ease the symptoms of menopause.

Pregnant and lactating mothers

Pregnancy and lactation are a unique period in a woman’s life. Maternal nutrition has a direct influence not only on the mother’s health but also on the health of the developing foetus, as well as playing a key role in the child’s health in years to come. It is important to know that maternal nutrition plays a vital role already, prior to conception and pregnancy. Ideally speaking, good eating habits in the mother should be established prior to pregnancy and maintained throughout pregnancy and lactation as well. 

With a carefully selected food, you can both support the growth and development of your child and benefit from its nutritional value yourself. This entails the right weight gain during pregnancy and the right weight loss after the birth.

Men

Men also have a distinct life cycle, with different stages requiring different diet, along with a versatile need for different food from the teenage years up until later adulthood. An awareness of these needs means they can be catered for by altering nutritional practices and habits. This enables men to stay healthy and vital and gives them the strength needed to take on any adversities in life.

Older adults

Getting old is an inevitable natural process, which can be slowed down by well-balanced and well-planned nutrition and enjoyable, but effective physical activity. Suitable diet and physical activity also contributes to our increased resistance against diseases. At the same time, a good diet and exercise plan enhances vitality as well as assisting those with chronic disabilities to overcome and manage these disabilities. Likewise, nutrition is also an enjoyable part of our lives, giving us pleasure and satisfaction.

In order to preserve stamina and overcome difficulties and on-going conditions such as alteration in taste and smell sensibilities, difficulty in chewing and swallowing, a diminished appetite, constipation, osteoporosis and general loss of strength, we will work together with you to carefully select an appropriate diet in order to support your well-being and health.
