It helped me understand more about the type of food I am eating as well as making more aware of what I need to for developing a healthy diet.

Me and my girls have really enjoyed the class after school, it is fun for all the family to get involved in. We've learnt a lot about healthy eating and things we shouldn't be eating. It's fun and free! Really enjoyed it.

The help and support received was excellent. You listened, encouraged and motivated without banner foods and making unrealistic targets. The contact was maintained to my personal needs and not overwhelming but available when required. The cook and taste sessions are great. I'm gaining confidence in food choices and my family's involved in planning too. I've even made the recipes at home by myself to make sure I didn't forget how. And attending the sessions is a huge achievement for me socially too. It’s great to gain new ideas and use herbs and spices and vegetables I wouldn't normally know what to do with. I'm adapting the recipes to suit our tastes and my husband is vegetarian so I'm able to switch some ingredients too. I wouldn't have known where to begin or have the confidence to even try before the cook and taste sessions. I had forgotten how much I enjoy prepping vegetables and serving up special meals. And they don't have to cost a fortune or be too complicated or time consuming. Thank you very much from all the family.
