"Cook4Life- Sherwood Pines"

About: Specialist services / Nutrition & dietetics

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

A Cook 4 Life course was delivered to participants at The Environmental Hub near Sherwood Pines. Participants commented on the course;

‘My wife is a brilliant cook; she went to college and taught cooking so, I thought, we were well versed in good and bad food. However, this course has opened up new horizons and emphasized what I thought I knew. I found the course very informative especially the different parts such as 5 A Day and portion sizes. It departmentalises everything rather than getting confused. This is shown through cooking. The course is well worth doing. ’

Others added:

‘I’ve enjoyed the course and it has improved my confidence’

‘I especially liked preparing foods. It is an excellent course and has made me look at healthy living more closely’

‘It was nice that the learning was fun and interactive rather than being bossed about’
