Nutrition and Health Focus for Parents in Shannon, Co. Clare

IMAG0208The Parent Wellbeing Group in Shannon, Co. Clare, took part in a nutrition and healthy eating class in December. The parent wellbeing programme is a seven week initiative focusing on wellness of mind and body. Through the practical element of cooking, parents discussed the food pyramid, family cooking tips and budgeting skills.

IMAG0213Our parents cooked a nutritious chicken and pesto pasta bake, a vegetarian pasta dish and made their own granola cereal.

On completion of the session, parents were given healthy recipes to take home and practice with the family.

This session was facilitated by Respond Family Support, Shannon FRC, with help from Sophia Nash, LIT social care placement student.
