ABOUT

MICHAEL LYNN

I am a Performance and Health Nutritionist (SENr register) running my own business ‘Nurture’, providing nutritional programmes in primary and secondary schools. At present, operating in the North West of England. This entails practical cooking sessions, one-to-one support, supermarket visits, recipes and workshops with pupils, parents and teachers educating them on the benefits of good nutrition by providing them the knowledge to make informed choices. Being ‘Healthy’ is seen to be a middle class preserve, meaning you need money to eat and lead a healthy lifestyle. The goal of ‘Nurture’ is to dispel this by educating children and parents that your financial standing does not matter, that you can still lead a healthy lifestyle by following the mantra “Education from the roots up”.

I am, also, a sessional worker at ‘The Joshua Tree foundation’ providing nutritional support and cooking to children and families affected by cancer. This work directly links in with my research with researchers from Liverpool John Moore’s and Edge Hill university’s and future research in applying nutrition and exercise strategies to positively alter body compositional changes during aftercare treatment of children with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL).
