The Beacon is delighted to welcome a new member to our team, CHEFF:
C.H.E.F.F stands for Cooking, Healthy Eating, Fitness & Fun. The CHEFF programme is delivered to participants in a fun, social, and interactive way. Its focus is to engage families and peers to come together and enjoy cooking, education on healthy eating and games/activities around leading a healthier and more active lifestyle. Being involved in the CHEFF programme also means they spend quality time together as a family and are learning new skills and activities to take back home to encourage a change in habits.
The CHEFF programme aims to deliver the following outcomes.
• learn new skills
• spend time as a family
• cook on a low budget
• learn which foods are good for you – those which give you energy, which are good for muscle growth etc
understanding the benefits of eating well and being active creates a healthy lifestyle – eating well combined with physical activity, results in maintaining a healthy weight and reduce risk of heart disease. Therefore, reducing the risk of obesity.
promote a more active and healthier lifestyle for the whole family which will improve physical health and wellbeing.
