Food and Health Project

Howdy all,

We were sent this information from Tracy Kelly at the Ballyfermot Partnership about several courses and workshops about healthy eating,
We’re passing these onto you in case it catches anybody’s interest!

Please see the mail below and the attached flyers for more information.

All the best,

John M.

Healthy Food Made Easy Project/Healthy Heart/Cool Dude Programme/Weaning Workshops

As you may be aware the Healthy Food Made Easy Project has been in the Ballyfermot/Chapelizod Area for the last 10 years.  Our catchment area includes Ballyfermot/Chapelizod, Dublin 12,8,6 and Dublin 2. The project is a joint initiative between Ballyfermot/Chapelizod Partnership and the Health Promotion Service, Tallaght, HSE Dublin Mid–Leinster. The focus of the project is community nutrition; local people have been trained as Peer Leaders to support people in their community who are interested in healthier eating, particularly where cost is a consideration.

We now have four programmes to offer to participants:

Healthy Food Made Easy – The course has six sessions which include practical cooking as well as sensible suggestions and ideas.  The main goal is to help improve people’s access to good quality information that can be put into practice in everyday life. The course includes a visit from the Community Dietitian, Health Promotion service on the 5th week.

Cool Dude Programme - The Cool Dude programme was developed to educate children on the importance of a healthy diet and to help improve the nutritional knowledge, attitudes and behaviour of young people. This programme targets children aged 8 - 14 years.

Healthy Hearts Programme – A three week follow up programme to Healthy food made easy.  This programme has three sessions which focus on nutrition, stress management and physical activity.

Weaning Workshops – We now offer Weaning Workshops to help new parents with the transition to solid food during the weaning process for young babies.  This is a Free once off workshop.   Contact Tracy for more information.

We are now taking bookings for the next courses which will commence from April 2016 Onwards, booking early essential!   I have enclosed some booklets for your information.  Any community groups interested in hosting the Healthy Food Made Easy/healthy Hearts/Cool Dude programmes in the near future can contact me for more information.

Kind regards
