course outline

Each week we will cook a healthy meal using fresh ingredients which we can eat together or, if you prefer, you can take home! We’ll help prove that eating a healthy and balanced diet can be easy, fun, cost effective and most importantly – tasty!!

The courses will cover a range of food topics through fun activities and games such as:

  • The reasons for 5-a-day
  • What is Healthy Eating?
  • Breakfast, Sugar and Portion size
  • Salt and Fat content in foods
  • Understanding food labels
  • How do we eat healthily on a budget?
  • The importance of water for a healthy diet
  • Physical activity taster sessions (e.g. Zumba)

It will be fun, a chance to meet new people and an opportunity and share recipe tips and ideas.
