LISTEN: The importance of period nutrition

Tuesday 23 May 2023

Ahead of International Day of Action for Women’s Health, Express spoke to a local nutritionist specialising in women's health about periods – including whether to eat dark chocolate or milk chocolate, among other pressing topics...

Jessica Pinel is a registered nutritionist, certified health coach, and founder of her own business Humankynd Nutrition, which provides one-to-one women’s nutrition advice.

She also recently began to provide classes on period health and nutrition in her own time at the island's secondary schools. 

On the latest Bailiwick Podcast, Jessica discussed period health, the motive behind those classes, the change she has seen when it comes to women's health, and the change she still hopes to see in Jersey.

Jessica will also be celebrating International Day of Action for Women's Health on Sunday 28 May with a Women's Health Day Retreat, tickets for which are available here.
