Caring for you as we would for ourselves

Nutrition unit: balanced diet workshops

It is not always easy to eat a balanced diet, especially when you lead a busy life or often eat meals out. Supermarket shelves are filled with more and more food products while restaurants and cafés serve endless meal options. The nutrition unit at Hôpital de La Tour provides specialised support through a range of practical workshops to help you make healthy, balanced choices when it comes to food.

Are these workshops for you?

Do you want to know how to shop for a balanced diet? Do you want to be able to read and understand food labels and know what is in the products you are buying? Do you feel overwhelmed on your lunch break by the different meals available each day in the restaurants and cafés close to your work? Do you worry that you might not be choosing healthy and balanced meals? Come to one of our practical workshops and you will find answers to all your questions!

Our experts

Meet highly-experienced nutritionists from the nutrition unit at Hôpital de La Tour during your Thursday lunch break. We look at three key topics together to help take care of your health.


Meet in front of the entrance to ‘Migros Take Away’, on the 1st floor of the Balexert shopping centre.

It is easier to plan meals that are balanced when you start with a healthy shopping list. Smart food shopping helps you to make simple, quick and balanced meals and also inspires you to create delicious food for you and your family.

We will go food shopping together and show you just how easy it is to fill your basket with healthy and varied food.

Every first Thursday of the month,

Workshop 2

Eating healthy meals away from home

Cafés, fast-food chains, sandwich shops, restaurants, supermarkets and service stations are just some of the options
