Giving back is important for NuActive Health

NuActive Health appreciates how fortunate they are and the ability they have to give back to the community that supports them.

Cooking Classes

NuActive Health runs a range of healthy cooking classes.

With state of the art cooking facilities sponsored by major companies (see below), the opportunity to demonstrate to individuals and the world, that healthy cooking is fun, easy and tasty will be an exciting one. With 8.5 million Australians overweight, 3 million with diabetes or pre-diabetes, and an exponentially growing number of cardiovascular and other lifestyle diseases, it’s inevitable that the demand on the health industry will continue to grow. NuActive Health® is committed to improve the health of as many Australians as possible. Wouldn’t it would be wonderful if enough people could be convinced to adopt a healthy lifestyle and we saw a significant reduction in the economic burden of lifestyle diseases that we are currently faced with?

We also offer a range of nutrition courses for culinary experts to show chefs and food editors how they can impact Australian’s health by the food they cook and write about. With nearly a decade of experience working in food media, coauthor of the recipes in Diabetic Living Magazine a Better Homes and Garden’s, Pacific Magazines publication, and writing our own cookbooks, we show chefs that food can really look and taste sensational while at the same time be healthier if not completely healthy. We all like to indulge in decadent food occasionally, dietitians included, but when high salt, fatty and sugary foods that lack nutrients creep into everyday eating on a regular basis, food contributors need to take their part of responsibility in this. In saying that their is no point attempting to produce healthy food if they don’t know how, there is nothing worse than a recipe being labelled healthy if in fact it’s not. Which is where our course comes in – we fill the gaps that their culinary training has missed and help them be experts in cooking all styles of food including special dietary requirements.

Raise a Hand Foundation

NuActive Health’s Director, Joanne Turner, appreciates all the wonderful contacts she has developed through running NuActive Health, and has turned these contacts into raising money for well needed Australian and International charities.

Joanne started her own not for profit organisation that arranges the creation of signed celebrity handprints and auctions these items with 100% of the proceeds going to the charity of the celebrity’s choice.

Hand prints are also available for fund raising events and school fund raising.

Starting Solids Workshops to New Mums

Ask any new parent of their ‘plan’ to introduce solids to their baby, and they’re likely to be at best confused, and at worst anxious. NuActive Health is happy to provide any new parents group with an online or in person starting solids workshop, that will give parents the knowledge of what, when, how and how much to feed their child from the day they start solids.
