Community dieticians from NHS Forth Valley are currently promoting a national healthy eating campaign called Eat Better, Feel Better.

And, as part of the campaign, a healthy eating website has been launched at www.EatBetterFeelBetter.co.uk

The website contains some great tips, easy meal ideas and quick recipes that won’t break the bank.

It also has cook-along videos so even a beginner in the kitchen can learn how to prepare and cook a delicious meal in no time.

Trying to get your family to eat a little healthier can be a real challenge. From dealing with fussy eaters to shopping on a budget and even finding time to cook, but help is at hand on the new website.

The campaign is about inspiring and supporting parents and families to make small changes to the way they shop, cook and eat with the aim of improving their health.

Getting children to eat healthier from a young age can help them avoid major illnesses later in life.

There are many quick and cheap changes you can make to how you shop, cook and eat.

And there is scientific evidence that physical activity and a healthy diet can protect against many of Scotland’s leading chronic diseases including heart disease, diabetes and some cancers.

By making simple changes to how you shop, cook and eat, you and your family can eat better and feel better.

If you would like more information on the campaign or to receive a briefing pack please email Pamela Murray, public health dietician, NHS Forth Valley, on pamela.murray1@nhs.net

As part of the campaign dietitians have sent Eat Better, Feel Better campaign briefing packs to all family centres where the public can pick one up.
