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.

Healthy Eating

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.
