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 balance of each session has been great – the snack,  the talk, the practical, the eating, the talking and presentations of information.”

“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.”
