Testimonials for 1-2-1 Consultations
I had a one to one with Colette and I learnt so much, as it was so tailored to what exactly I needed. I have so often spent €20 or €30 on new cookbooks, but for just one hour, it was fantastic value for money. Mary, Sligo
My daughter can get quite upset sometimes when I serve something a bit ‘different’ or new for dinner. Colette suggested some great, practical ways of preventing this happening like making the dinner less overwhelming and how best to engage her in the process. We also discussed the best things to say like 'Our likes change lots as we grow up e.g. remember when you used to like to watch Peppa Pig and you don’t like it anymore'. These suggestions were all easy to implement and despite my uncertainty, they did work so now everyone is much more relaxed at dinner time. Deirdre, Galway.
I thought I would have to make huge changes to our diets, and also that it would be complicated. But not so with Colette. She suggested straightforward changes that I would never have thought of, but when she suggested them they really clicked with me. I have already booked in a follow up consultation . Dee, Galway.
I was concentrating so much on trying to get my kids to eat their food; I was forgetting what was in their diet. So having the 1-1 time with Colette was just brilliant. Colette has empowered me so much with feeding my 4 kids, who are all at different stages; as well as feeding myself and my husband well. Clare, Dublin.
Reviews for Healthy Eating Talks
Colette from Growing Healthy Eaters gave a very interesting talk to staff on ‘Variety for Lunches’ and provided some great and innovative ideas on ways to entice children to eat a variety of different foods. Feedback from staff following Colette’s talk was very positive. Galway City Council
for their 'Lunch & Learn Series'
The 6 workshops provided by Colette over the duration of two mornings were very interesting and informative. She was an excellent presenter.
Part of their Employee Health & Well being activities for the Marine Institute in Galway and Mayo.
We wanted to take a holistic approach to athletics therefore, we decided to bring Colette in to speak about the importance of hydration and fueling the body with healthy choices. Colette really engaged our large group and the feedback from parents was fantastic - their children are now making much better health choices.

Feedback from other talks:
My daughter attended one of Colette's talks and I was amazed at the impact. I have been encouraging her to make food choices which are lower in sugar for an age, but after she came home she started looking at food labels with daddy. Nutella is now gone!
We all lead such busy lives and I found Colette's recommendations for specific breakfasts, especially the healthier cereals; and where to get them just brilliant.
I’ve always struggled with what to provide for the kids school lunches. I got a great variety of fab ideas and recipes from Colette's talk and many of them are simple, and quick.
Great presentation, very informative. Really enjoyed all the samples to taste.
I really liked Colette's practical advice and sensible approach to food.
Very interesting workshop. Gave me lots of ideas for better, healthier snacks.
Excellent talk and very relevant to products available in our local supermarket.
Very informative, great tips and helped with my concerns and queries.
I would 100% recommend this talk (Breakfasts made easier) to others.
Testimonials for the Fussy Eating Plan
We are delighted with the success we have had with Colette’s Fussy Eater program for our 3 year old, who started as a very fussy eater, generally eating only dry foods, no meat or veg. He is now eating healthy dinners every day including veg. We didn’t believe it was possible, but after 1:1 planning with Colette and lots of persistence we are seeing the benefit. Mairead, Galway.
Based on Colette’s advice I started making small, straightforward changes immediately with my preschooler. I couldn’t believe the way my daughter's diet changed so much. She is now not only willing to try foods, but eats lots of different foods. She was particularly poor at eating all vegetables before; but now regularly eats a wide variety of vegetables like peas, sweet corn, carrots and even cauliflower and broccoli. I didn’t think this was possible after all the times I presented vegetables before, but with no success. Kate, Clare.
We had previously asked others for help to improve our little mans's eating. They simply recommended eliminating snacks between meals and the immediate reduction of milk. We found that this was just not very realistic. Instead, Colette advised a far better, step-by-step approach; that is how to re-introduce foods and create an interest in a wide variety of foods. This of course was a much more successful approach. MG, Mayo.
