We are delighted to be taking part in the Sláintecare Healthy Communities Healthy Food Made Easy Programme.

The Healthy Food Made Easy (HFME) programme provides a nutrition and cookery course that helps people to change to a healthy diet, plan meals on a budget and make easy to cook meals.

The key messages from Healthy Food for Life are:

  • Eat more vegetables, salad and fruit – Up to seven servings a day
  • Limit intake of high fat, sugar, salt (HFSS) food and drinks 
  • Size matters: Use the food pyramid as a guide for serving sizes
  • Increase your physical activity levels
  • Small changes can make a big difference. Start TODAY!

The Healthy Food for Life resources can also be ordered from healthpromotion.ie

Topics covered include:

  • Building a Food Pyramid
