It is so important to eat well and healthy to build your immune system and keep you feeling good. Healthy Eating information is available from the following sources:

Grow It Yourself - are launching the ‘Grow It Forward’ programme, designed to help the nation eat well by inspiring people to grow, cook and eat some of their own food at home. Participants will register through their local library to grow some of their own food with a free GIY starter kit and encouraged to ‘grow it forward’ to 9 others  by passing on seeds, seedlings or produce.

Safefood START – a campaign that encourages parents to use the time they spend together as a family as a good opportunity to begin healthy habits at home and add a healthy habit to their routine from time to time

Bord Bia - have a new initiative for winter that will showcase a range of easy to prepare seasonal recipes centred around a healthy balanced diet. They will also be giving tips on getting your garden ready for Spring an activity for all the family to enjoy together.

Stop Wood Waste - Wicklow County Council in conjunction with Stop Food Waste brought you the Stop Food Waste Summer Challenge with Emmy Nominated TV Chef Ballyknocken House & Cookery School. Get some recipe ideas on the links below or visit for more ideas.
