As a nutritionist I get requests every year from magazines and journalists asking me for tips and quotes on ways to ‘avoid the festive weight gain’ or for ‘guilt-free Christmas recipes’.

The theme for the morning was ‘Building Resilience in the Workplace’ – one that was timely since today sees World Mental Health Day with the theme ‘Mental health in the workplace’.
