Want to improve your eating habits, but don’t know where to start? We can help!

With an EatWell membership, you can join our registered dietitians and fellow members who share your desire to eat well. This customizable membership provides a no-nonsense, evidence-based approach to healthy eating that can address a wide range of nutrition-related needs, including weight management, chronic disease prevention and management, and quality of life. A free EatWell membership also gives you access to exclusive benefits, like weekly member meetings, an EatWell member website, and  weekly emails.

Memberships are:

  • Free to UK employees, retirees and spouses 
  • Flexible to your needs and never expire  
  • A convenient way to learn more about eating well

What you can expect

Learn basic nutrition information.
"I'm so confused about nutrition and I don't know what to believe." We hear this often from new members. Let us help you cut through the noise and focus on what really matters.

Learn how to apply nutrition information to your every day life.
“Eating well feels so overwhelming and time-consuming.” We can help you make eating well feel practical and achievable.

Learn how to understand the psychology of eating.
“My attitudes and beliefs about food are holding me back from making progress.” Eating well goes beyond just knowing and doing. We can help you change your mindset around food to support sustainable eating habits.
Or maybe these needs resonate with you - we can help with those too!
“I don’t know what I don't know!” 
“I’m just curious to learn more about nutrition and food.” 
“I want to be part of a like-minded group and find support for my own eating well journey.” 

Convenient meetings

Live meetings are held weekly on Zoom.
Tuesdays, 11:15-11:45 a.m.
Wednesdays, 12:15-12:45 p.m.
