Healthy eating in tough times

Healthy eating agendas are slipping from view as budgets get cut on a national and local level. NHS and council staff are having to make tough choices. Do they reduce the number of doctors and nurses, increase waiting times for operations or do they cut the promotion of healthy eating? The choice is obvious, isn’t it? We are making very short term decisions which unfortunately has consequences.

What can we do? We can promote healthy eating in all aspects of our lives. Talk about it with friends, make healthy food appetising for dinner parties and BBQs, change your own habits.

Don’t use budget cuts as an excuse. We need to keep healthy eating on the agenda to help our children have long and healthy lives.
