Healthy eating

With so much advice out there about what you should and should not be doing to eat healthily, it can seem complicated and difficult to do. You are not alone in feeling like this - a recent survey showed that nearly a third of Medway residents did not know whether they eat healthily.

But do not despair, your Medway Community Food Team are here to help you make healthier food choices and enjoy a healthier diet. The team can provide healthy eating information, training and resources by giving practical support to eat healthier. This can include cookery courses, workshops, recipes and meal planning together with working in partnership to support local food providers.

Projects include Medway Cooks, Medway GrowsBreastfeeding and the Eat Out, Eat Well Award.
