SYKETTÄ – Nutrition Services
Balanced and healthy eating supports your well-being together with exercising.
In addition to sports, also nutrition services are available at SYKETTÄ.
SYKETTÄ offers practical and evidence based nutrition services for students and personnel holding SYKETTÄ stickers. Available nutrition services in English are nutrition counseling, cooking classes and “Ask from Nutrition Specialist” -form.
1. Nutrition counseling
SYKETTÄ Nutrition Services offers nutrition counseling every Wednesday at 4:30 pm and 5:00pm. If you have anything food and nutrition related you would like to discuss with a specialist and you hold a valid sports sticker, you can book a 30 minute appointment through SYKETTÄ Sports calendar to come and discuss with our SYKETTÄ nutrition specialist Henna Kuru.
Here are some examples of the topics that can be discussed during the appointment:
– How to eat to compliment your training and to recover well
– Help with special diets, for example, if you are considering vegetarian diet or would like to lose weight in healthy way
– What to choose from the grocery store in order to eat in according to balanced and affordable diet?
Please notice that SYKETTÄ nutrition counseling does NOT replace the services of a registered dietitian. If we think you might need more professional help, we will together think about ways to seek it.
You are warmly welcome!
2. Cooking classes
Cooking classes are also organized regularly by SYKETTÄ Nutrition Services.
Cooking classes hold different themes under which we cook easy and affordable recipes that suits well to our everyday life. First we cook together and after we dine together. The cooking classes are held mostly in Finnish, however instructions and recipes can be translated in English as well. Therefore, English-speaking students and personnel are also warmly welcomed to join the classes. Classes are held by SYKETTÄ nutritional specialist Henna Kuru.
