On Thursday 17th November at the Hibernian Hotel, Mallow, the Community Food Initiative will be on hand highlighting the range of supports available from various exhibitors and providing a wealth of knowledge from healthy shopping, improved meal-planning and budgeting to preventing food waste.

Eating well is important for all of us. In the short-term, it can help us to feel good, look our best and stay at a healthy weight. In the long-term, a healthy, balanced diet can reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and some cancers.

With Guest Speaker Niamh Barry (Naturopathic Nutritionist) and a chance to “Know your Numbers” – (Blood Pressure, BMI),  a Smoothie Demonstration (with free samples!!) this event is shaping up to be very exciting. What we eat and drink has a real effect on ourselves, our heart and blood pressure. The healthier our eating habits are, the lower our blood pressure will be. So come and join us for a “healthy” discussion.
