HEALTHY EATING & NUTRITION OFFERINGS

Because quality nutrition is such an important (and challenging) part of a healthy lifestyle, our YMCA provides comprehensive nutrition support.

 

WHY NUTRITION IS SO IMPORTANT?

Good nutrition is a vital part of leading a healthy lifestyle. Swapping unhealthy foods for healthy ones can improve your health and wellness by increasing the strength of your bones and teeth, improving your energy levels and mental clarity, decreasing your weight (or inches). Not only does good nutrition improve your sleep, it reduces the risk for high blood pressure and chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease. Good nutrition is essential for a body to fight off infection and function properly.

NUTRITION ORIENTATION

A Nutrition Orientation can help you begin your wellness journey by offering you a one-on-one conversation with one of our Nutrition Coaches on how to get started on eating healthy. YMCA Nutrition Coaches are available to answer your questions and help you determine what nutrition services will work best for you.  To schedule stop by Member Services or you can call to schedule at 402-404-8439 or healthyliving@nwsymca.org

 

NUTRITION HOUR 

Our Nutrition Coaches will be available weekly for you out on the wellness floor to share tips, recipes or answer any questions you may have related to healthy living. Stop by and check it out!

Tuesdays 5:30 – 6:30 PM

 

NUTRITION COACHING

Our nutrition programs are not about providing a meal plan that you may follow for a short time, but rather focuses on building sustainable skills and habits to support your long-term health goals.  Our Nutrition Coaches are not nutritionists or dieticians- they are, instead, partners in learning how to move you along on your wellness journey. The initial consultation will include a review of your 3-day food intake, a discussion of recommendations, and answers to your questions regarding your eating habits. *conveniently offered virtually or in-person at the Y.

Starter Package:

Includes one 60-minute consultation as well as three follow-up sessions (up to 30 minutes). This package was designed to be an accountability tool to help support your long-term nutritional goals and celebrate small successes along the way.

YMCA Member: $200

Community: $350

Youth & Family Nutrition Consultation:

During our Youth & Family Nutrition Consultations, our Nutrition Coaches work together with you to help your child develop healthy habits through family nutrition support.  Conveniently held virtually or at the Y, we will help you create plans and achieve health goals as a family. Each session lasts 60 minutes.

HEALTHY EATING WORKSHOPS

Reach your health and wellness goals with the YMCA! Join our Wellness Staff for interactive and engaging healthy living workshops.  Our workshops go beyond planning to involve some of the practical challenges of eating well, such as healthy cooking and grocery shopping.
