Fit to Eat

Fit to Eat is a project all about learning to eat safely and healthily.  People with learning difficulties got together in workshops to talk about the things they found really hard about cooking, cleaning and eating healthily.  This gave us the ideas for a great information pack called 'FIT TO EAT'.

Each pack contains four large and easy to understand information leaflets on cooking, cleaning, chilling and healthy eating as well as a DVD.  Also in the pack are a lot of helpful things like a fridge thermometer, cleaning cloths, a magnetic cleaning checklist and a magnifying glass.

To help with cooking the pack has three large easy to understand recipe cards for spaghetti bolognaise, tomato dahl and shepards pie.  The project was funded by a grant from the food standards agency and devised in partnership with Lifeskills for living, B&NES council and Connections Day Services.
