Food for Thought

Our Food for Thought sessions aim to help improve participants’ health and wellbeing through healthy eating tips and techniques. Throughout the workshops, participants gain knowledge and tools to cook nutritious meals for themselves. Participants learn how to prepare delicious, healthy meals with others in a welcoming and inclusive environment. 

These workshops are made possible thanks to Heart Research UK.

About Food for Thought

After the success of the Cardiff workshops, we are now running sessions in Rhondda Cynon Taf. We will soon be offering the workshop in the Vale of Glamorgan. 

Food for Thought is a 6-week healthy eating workshop course combining learning, discussion and making healthy snacks, and not to forget tasting them too! Participants are encouraged to taste food they may not have tried before and to expand their food knowledge and palette. 

Participants enjoy getting involved in preparing the food and often encourage their peers to try new things. To support participants’ overall health, those who sign up for the course are given fitness trackers and encouraged to set goals around the number of daily steps, focusing on their physical health as well as digestive health. Workshops also cover the topic of mental health and wellbeing, specific food groups, and alternative plates.

Are you interested in learning how to make delicious, healthy meals that will leave you feeling great? Get in touch!

I found it very useful trying to do the cooking for myself. I even tried some of the recipes at home.
