About the course

We all know that in theory, but putting it into practice can feel overwhelming… and we aim to help!

Food for Wellbeing is a nourishing 6 week evening course which aims to help you learn how to make positive food choices to support your health and wellbeing.


Cooking demonstrations
Conversations with healthcare experts: holistic doctor (GMC registered); psychologist; nutritionist
Shared meal each week with the group
Practical session with take home item
Recipes and info pack full of top tips and easy to follow nutrition guidelines

The Food for Wellbeing course brings together practical tips around cooking healthy food from scratch; psychological expertise, to look at blocks to making healthy choices; as well as nutrition and medical knowledge to help us understand why food is so important for our health and wellbeing.

On this course you will also have the opportunity to find out more about the role of exercise in health and wellbeing, and how you can connect into the Food Network. Each week there will be a practical demonstration with local community food educators, a shared meal, and input from experts interested in non-drug approaches to health and wellbeing.

Who is the Food for Wellbeing course for?

This course aims to equip and inspire attendees to prepare and eat delicious food from scratch, and to review some of the obstacles that get in the way of making positive changes.

This course is for you if you want to learn more about the role of nutrition in your health and wellbeing and gain practical advice so that you come away with the tools you need to make positive changes.

The benefits of attending this course

This course has been developed by NCIM to make food a mainstream health offer to support a range of health-related problems.

We work with healthcare professionals such as psychologists, nutritionists and fitness experts to provide advice surrounding food and health.

You’ll be learning from the experts and also learning ‘by doing’ so that you are confident in your own choices and skills when you are back at home.

“The attitude to food – enjoying, variety, new recipes has been freeing.”

“When I stared the course I was overwhelmed by messages about food, it helped me to focus on a meal at a time”

“…coming to the course with the same people every week, really helped me relax and experience a real community feel.”
