Healthy Eating On A Budget
6 March 2023
The cost-of-living crisis combined with rising food costs means the majority of us will be thinking twice over the food we buy. With food prices rising an average of 11.2% over the past year, with no sign of them reducing any time soon, the pressure is on to make savings on our food shop that count.
But saving money on food doesn’t mean you need to scrimp on nutrition. At our in person workshop, Healthy Eating on a Budget, taking place on Thursday 9 March 18.00-19.00, Harley Street nutritionists will share nutritional insights and money-saving tips to prove you really can eat well on a budget. This 60 minute workshop, which is free for members, will cover:
- Healthy supermarket swaps
- The healthiest foods for under £1
- Family meals for under a tenner
- Foods worth the investment
- How to read your food labels – things to look for and look out for
- Batch cooking 101
- How to eat seasonally for your health and wallet
More information and how to register is available here.
The workshop has been organised to coincide with National Nutrition Month – created 50 years ago by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and encouraging everyone to learn about making informed food choices and developing healthful eating and physical activity habits.
This week, 6-10 March, is also Food Waste Action Week, showcasing the simple ways we can reduce food waste. The theme for the week is ‘Win. Don’t Bin’ to demonstrate how valuable food is in our lives, how it unites people and how using up everything we buy saves money, time and the planet. Westminster City Council has a series of events taking place – find out more here.
