Healthy Food Made Easy – tutor training


“Healthy Food Made Easy” Tutor Training

“Healthy Food Made Easy” (HFME) ’ is a six week nutrition education and cooking  programme which  provides practical information on healthy eating and improves cooking skills by showing participants ways to provide healthy, nutritious, low cost meals and snacks .

HFME puts the healthy eating guidelines into practice in an easy, relaxed and fun way. Those taking part in HFME learn from each other and get the chance to experiment with dishes that are quick and easy to prepare.

This programme is suitable for use with a wide range of groups in the community and is usually run over 6 sessions (approx. 2hrs per session). The course is flexible and the material can be adapted to suit course participants and their individual needs e.g. literacy and interests.

Tutors will have the support of the local HSE Community Dietitian and HSE Health Promotion Officer in the delivery of each programme. To deliver the HFME program, you do not need to be a “Masterchef”, but you need to be confident in working with groups and have an interest in food and health.

A one day training session for Community Workers is scheduled for January 2020, as detailed below. Full training pack, materials and ongoing support will be given to all trained tutors.
