Who Are Food Heroes?

We are two highly trained and experienced Dietitians with over 30 years experience between us. We are passionate about providing healthy food to our own children and educating others to do the same.  We have a wealth of experience working with children and families and a real love for all things foodie. 

We met over 10 years ago when we worked together as Dietitians at NHS Forth Valley and became firm friends. We knew one day we wanted to do something different together. After both having two children and attending parent and toddler groups ourselves we realised that incorporating what we know about food and nutrition into something fun and educational that parents and carers can attend with their children could be something special and help improve children’s relationship with food and eating. We hope you think so too.

Individual Classes - £15 per child

Individual class can be booked in advance. Your little one will transform into one of our Food Heroes. Parents and carers will assist their Food Hero to cook recipes developed by us which are nutritionally balanced and tasty too. Whatever our Food Heroes make is theirs to take home and enjoy later.

Classes will include food preparation and cooking with your child allowing them to learn hands on life skills and educate them about different food groups and nutrition as we go. There will be a chance for free play time and all our recipes will be emailed out to parents/carers after each class to try out again at home.

The Food Heroes classes we run will be suited to aged 2-5 children and will run during term time.

Nutritional Advice

We are specialist Dietitians and are therefore able to educate using evidence-based nutritional advice for you and your children. In doing so we aim to improve the dietary intake of families and educate on a healthy balanced diet whilst simultaneously creating a positive relationship with food.
