Healthy Eating

EcoLocal has a great deal of experience in engaging the local community in making healthier food choices and learning to cook healthy meals for themselves and their families.

- We offer interactive lessons in schools about how children can get their 5-a-day and a healthy balanced diet.
- Our adult Learn to Cook Courses are popular with local residents, providing a chance to gain skills in preparing affordable, quick, easy and healthy meals for all the family.
- We have developed outreach activities designed to get people starting to think about healthy eating. We deliver these activities at fairs, markets and high street locations.

Healthy Eating Promotional Stalls

During trials, 94% of participants at the stalls said the activity had increased their knowledge of healthy eating.
