Nutritionist to help boost health of children in South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire

A SHEFFIELD-based healthcare firm has joined forces with a leading nutritionist to help boost the health and wellbeing of children across South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire.

B. Braun Medical Ltd has enlisted Hannah Bailey, a qualified public health nutritionist and founder of Wise Choice Nutrition, to join its B. Healthy - B. Braun programme, an initiative which works

with schoolchildren to improve their activity levels and eating habits.

Led by Sheffield Sharks forward and B. Braun Medical intern Patrick Horstmann, the programme has already worked with more than 15,000 schoolchildren in Sheffield, Rotherham and Dronfield since it began in January 2014.

Hannah’s role will be to enhance the nutritional focus of the programme by going into schools and holding practical cookery sessions and food themed assemblies with pupils.

She said: “It’s already done a lot of fantastic work with schoolchildren in the region and hopefully I can add another element to that work by educating young people on how to make the right choices when it comes to food.”
