Community Healthhealth


Vital Nutrition’s Jane McClenaghan is known for her down-to-earth, practical approach to healthy eating. Jane works with community groups all over Northern Ireland to help inspire and empower people to make positive changes for the good of their health. Whether you are looking for a cookery demo, a healthy eating workshop or nutritional advice, we can tailor a package to meet the needs of your group.

Some of the services we offer:

  • Practical nutrition workshops and seminars
  • Cookery demonstrations
  • One-to-one consultations
  • Keynote speaker for conferences
  • Interactive and engaging exhibition stands
  • Healthy goody bags and incentives to encourage positive change

With the latest statistics showing that some families spend 1/3 of their income on food, we recognise the importance of making the right choices. The first step to health starts with what is in our shopping basket.

Here’s a taster of what Vital Nutrition can offer your community group:

Jane works with a number of charities and community groups, including Cancer Lifeline, East Belfast Community Development Agency, Health in Mind NI, Libraries NI, and she is also the local ambassador for The Big Lunch, funded by The Big Lottery.

‘’The Big Lunch has benefited significantly from having Jane as our local ambassador as her energy and enthusiasm are infectious. We hoped asking Jane to be our ambassador would encourage healthier choices at street parties and community events but it has done so much more. We have built a stronger network through shared contacts and motivated more people to join in and make more sustainable local food choices. Jane is a busy individual but as the saying goes if you want something done well ask a busy person.”
