Discussions with a Dietitian: Fruit & Vegetables

Each month, a registered dietician from the NHS, visits LASS to offer helpful advice and information on food nutrition and healthy eating for people who live with HIV.  Our next is session is in a week, Friday 17th August (12:00 noon) and will focus on Fruit & Vegetables.  This is an opportunity to ask questions and speak with the dietitian directly about any concerns you may have.

What we eat affects our overall health. Food can help the body to fight infections. It also provides energy so that we can carry on leading active lives.

Eating healthily can prevent weight loss or weight gain. It can lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, which helps to prevent diabetes and heart disease. Food can also help control some of the side-effects of medication.

This all means that good nutrition is an important part of living well with HIV, we do hope you’re able to join us next week.

The therapeutic effects of arts and craft work is known to provide people with opportunities to relax, to feel a sense of accomplishment, to discover pride, to improve fine-motor skills, to develop a meaningful life-long hobby, to maintain an alert mind and so much more.

This is why we’re stating a craft group, and it’s open to anyone who is affected by HIV and would like to teach, or learn new craft skills such as knitting, paper crafts, jewellery making, sewing and crocheting.

We hope our crafts group will allow you to practice a number of skills while building self-esteem in completing projects and socialising with our staff, volunteers and individuals who use our services.

Our first session is this Wednesday, 18th April 2012 from 17:30 – 19:00.  We invite you to bring your crafting projects to show off to the group but don’t worry if you don’t have any as you’ll have the chance to get creative at the group. – We can’t wait to see what you create!
