Following a healthy diet can help you to keep a healthy weight, as well as helping you to feel your best.
Eating a well-balanced, healthy diet provides your body with the essential nutrients it needs to function on a daily basis.
You can ask your GP for access to a council commissioned adults weight loss programme; this is called the Weight Action Programme. We also run a children's local lifestyle programme called My Choice.
The government has published an Eatwell guide document which provides information on the different food groups and portion sizes required for a healthy and balanced diet.
We also offer a meals on wheels service that you can use if you fit the eligiblity criteria.
