It is worthwhile to take some time to think about the food you eat. You probably know a fair amount about what is good and bad for you and that eating a healthy balanced diet is one of the best ways to keep well. However, for many different reasons this does not always happen.
Whether you cook yourself, get help with meals, or go to a local group for lunch, this booklet provides ideas and practical suggestions which can help you maintain a healthy diet. A good diet can help to help keep both physical and mental health complications at bay.
You should enjoy your food. Eating the same regular boring meals can get you down, but trying something new or re-visiting meals you have not had in a while can be a good start towards to a happier and healthier future. You may not need all the information at once, so feel free to dip in and out of this guide to find the parts that are useful to you.
This guide includes information about organisations which provide specialist advice and has information at the back about the healthcare professionals who can help you.
