Wellness Initiative 2013- Healthy Eating Habits

Healthy EatingWe are trying to encourage our employees to live wholesome lifestyles, to focus on nutritious eating habits, healthy behaviour and to partake in regular exercise.

To assist everyone in Parsec and Redline to live out their New Year’s resolutions from the start, we are kicking off the year with a seminar to be held in the Mopani on 23 January 2013. It will be presented by the renowned South African dietician, Liesbet Delport. She will address the essence of balanced nutrition and balanced eating habits, as well as the health potholes to avoid.  

Liesbet Delport completed her BSc Dietetics degree and her diploma in Hospital Dietetics at the University of Stellenbosch in 1982. She started practising privately as a dietician in the Lowveld in 1983. She has been working in partnership with Marinda and Elizabeth at Diet Pro since 2001. She has been involved in GI research since 1998. In 2008 she completed a Master’s degree at the University of Pretoria. She has co-authored eight nutrition-related books since 2000, and has written articles on various aspects of nutrition for magazines and scientific journals. She regularly presents talks and lectures on nutrition to both her peers and the public, nationally and internationally, and has been interviewed on radio and television (taken from Diet Pro website).

We sincerely hope that everyone will attend and benefit from the seminar.
