Cook and Eat

The Issue

Cooking is a fundamental skill that is increasingly being replaced by ready meals and convenience foods. A key barrier to eating healthier for many people is this lack of skills and confidence in cooking from basic ingredients.

Take Action

Cook a meal from scratch; it doesn't have to be every day, just give yourself the time you need to ensure it is an enjoyable and rewarding experience. Join a basic cookery course if you feel you need to learn new skills.

The Benefits

Cooking for yourself, friends and family is extremely satisfying and will benefit your budget and health. You can make your own choices about the ingredients you put in your body and because it is fresh there is no need for all those additives, preservatives, and fillers that the factories add.
