Yvonne studied nutrition as a mature student, and in following her passion for food and cooking, went on to study to become a teacher. After spending time in a secondary school teaching Food Technology, Yvonne worked for the Children’s Food Trust on their school’s programme ‘Let’s Get Cooking’. In this role, Yvonne was able to combine her nutrition knowledge, teaching skills and passion for food and cooking – supporting early years settings and schools to meet menu guidelines, developing training resources, managing partnerships and setting up schools cooking sessions.

Following the closure of the Children’s Food Trust, Yvonne now splits her time between lecturing on the Human Nutrition degree at Worcester University, working as a diabetes prevention coach and as a Healthy Lifestyle Trainer for the local council.
