This webinar is in partnership with the Food for the Brain Foundation.


Mental Health Awareness Week this year is 10th - 16th May and we're proud to continue this series of free webinars that looks at the importance of nutrition in optimising mental wellbeing and brain health.

Nutrition as a means of both prevention and treatment of mental health, is understood by all and implemented by many. The Food For The Brain Foundation is looking to educate and provide important information to children, parents, teachers, schools, universities, the public, health professionals, food service operators, caterers and the government, thereby promoting mental wellbeing and brain health through optimum nutrition.

This session, delivered by David Titman, is for attendees from the first two webinars who now have a firm grip on nutrition in relation to overall health and mental wellbeing from the first two webinars, this presentation aims to help attendees put this knowledge into practice. Attendees will go away with some key knowledge about changing behaviour around food choices, how to encourage better eating habits and how to increase awareness amongst end users and staff.
There will be example studies from current accredited universities and wider organisations, who have made some significant changes in their menu offerings after undergoing training with Food for the Brain.

David is a registered nutritionist (AfN) with broad international experience in the food and foodservice industry. Currently working in both academic and business settings, he applies a practical approach to implementing progressive nutrition strategies that meet the needs of both businesses and end users. David has led the training and service development for Food for The Brain’s catering accreditation programme since 2015.

  • I can’t see a particular course/training, can you run it?

    If you are interested in receiving training that is not already offered by TUCO Academy, pop us an email or give us a call and we will see if we can source it for you. By going through TUCO Academy you will be able to purchase the training at a subsidised rate and if you can offer the training to other members it will reduce the cost further. 

    Does this answer your question? If not, you can contact us directly.

  • Can I request a course or development day be held at my organisation?

    The TUCO Academy has worked hard to offer all training at a subsidised price, agreeing reduced corporate contract rates with hotels etc. - yet still understands the benefits of in-house training. To that end, working alongside the professional trainers, TUCO Academy can arrange for events to be held at your own institution, for no extra cost. 

    Does this answer your question? If not, you can contact us directly.

  • Who can use the training with TUCO Academy?

    All professional development events are available for ANY staff in institutions who are members of TUCO, not just employees in the hospitality, catering and commercial services department.
