Healthy Food Made Easy is a 6 week nutrition and cookery course developed by HSE community dietitians. This course helps participants to make affordable healthier choices when shopping, cooking and eating to improve their longterm health.
Each session lasts 2 to 2 and half hours and includes activities on healthy eating & practical group cookery
Cork Sports Partnership through the WellComm Active Initiative are now taking applications from community groups and individuals across Cork to join our ‘Healthy Food Made Easy’ programmes. The programme is also being rolled out as part of the Sláintecare Healthy Communities Initiative in North Cork City.
The aim of the programme is to improve the nutritional knowledge and eating habits of participants which in turn can ultimately help reduce diet related chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes and cancer.
Who can take part in this programme?
This course is aimed at adults with limited budget & cooking skills who want to learn more about healthy eating. Individuals or existing community groups can sign-up for the programme. Some of our groups have included young parents, men/women living alone with poor cooking skills, adults moving from care into independent living etc..
Courses are delivered face-to-face and online.
Ideally a group number of 10-12 participants would suit best. – A minimum of 8 confirmed people MUST be available for the course to go ahead.
Programmes are usually run in the venue where groups regularly meet – a group space & basic kitchen area is needed. Groups may be asked to make a small contribution to the cost of this programme, usually to cover cost of ingredients.
