Hettie from Zing, who has worked with our school for a few years looking at healthy eating, has shared the following information with us:
- Basic food recipes (including items you will find in a foodbank box): We have assembled a selection of recipe cards which are based on creating nutritious family meals from basic provisions. We feel that everyone in Somerset should have access to ideas and inspiration for cooking simple, healthy food. These are available to view and download for free on our website: https://www.healthysomerset.co.uk/healthy-lifestyles-and-money-smart/zing-somerset-community-support/foodbank-recipe-ideas/
- Website resources: There are a variety of additional resources on our website, including 'Zing Day Play Day' (a book of games and activities to help children and families stay active), and a selection of additional sample recipes, which can be found and downloaded for free here: https://www.healthysomerset.co.uk/healthy-lifestyles-and-money-smart/zing-somerset-community-support/zing-downloadable-resources/
- Healthy Somerset website: There are additional resources from Somerset Public Health on how to stay healthy, happy and safe at home, which can be found here: https://www.healthysomerset.co.uk/covid-19/
The Eatwell Guide by the NHS shows how much of what we eat overall should come from each food group to achieve a healthy, balanced diet. It also has some interesting recipes and useful food tips.
