NHS Cambridgeshire is promoting the new supermeals campaign, part of Change4life. Change4Life is a national campaign which encourages us all to eat well, move more and live longer, by making small changes to improve health and wellbeing.
The supermeals campaign will offer money-off healthy foods like fruit and veg and low fat yoghurts. By signing up with Change4Life you can get money off foods at local supermarkets - as well as free recipe ideas.
As well as money off supermarket foods a new cookbook by celebrity chef Ainsley Harriott is being produced, with free copies being given away to local supporters. You can get your hands on one by cutting out a coupon from the Daily Mirror from January 20 which can be swapped at your local Asda*.
There are dozens of new recipes to try, there will even be YouTube cooking tutorials with Ainsley Harriott, all on the Change4Life website.
Starting on Monday (January 16) NHS Cambridgeshire will also be offering a programme of free activities to help people with their own healthy meals.
At the local events health staff will be available to give advice and information about simple ways to eat healthily, there will also be goodie bags with free information and recipes - and there is also the chance to win a Nintendo Wii Fit!
Val Thomas, Assistant Director of Health Improvement at NHS Cambridgeshire said:
“Eating healthily doesn’t have to be expensive and the Supermeals campaign will help to make it even more affordable. Supermeals campaign will offer money off healthy ingredients, such as fruit and vegetables and low fat yoghurts at supermarkets across Cambridgeshire.
“Making changes can be hard however and NHS Cambridgeshire has organized free activities across the county where people can get more information and advice.
“This is such an exciting campaign – there are so many ways for people to find out more and get involved.”
