Cooking Classes a Great Success

By Claire Graham |  May 23, 2016 |

Friday saw the last of a 4 week healthy eating course ran at GATE by Community Health Educators

(CHE's) from Barca.  The sun was shinning so we made healthy kebabs and got the BBQ's going!

 

The course has been really well attended with over 10 adults and also children learning together

to cook different recipes including chicken curry and stir fry.

We combined the course with heath messages that members felt appropriate such as

sun awareness and screening.

For the last session we also launched a new diabetes leaflet that community members have

designed to be easy read for people with low literacy, everyone took a handful of leaflets to give

out to friends and family.

 

'A really great course that was a great chance to learn and have fun together' (Eileen Jr)
