Eat Well

Older people eating healthily

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 that 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 foods over and over 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 in this guide at once, so feel free to dip in and out of it to find the parts that are useful to you.

This guide was produced in partnership with Eat Well Age Well. It includes information about organisations who can provide specialist advice, and the healthcare professionals who can support you.
