Food for Health

When people are diagnosed with a chronic illness they can find themselves exposed to contradictory theories about diet, nutrition and health. This two-day workshop, designed for people living with cancer or a chronic illness and those undergoing oncology treatment, aims to cut through the noise around fad diets and offer practical, fact-based advice on food for health.

Designed and led by experienced dieticians Kelly Grainger and Veronica Dick, the course will give people the space to explore issues around eating and food. Our experts will:

  • Introduce the fundamentals of a good diet following diagnosis of a chronic illness
  • Dispel the myths around fad diets and instead focus on a research and an evidence-based approach
  • Explore the impact treatment for cancer and other illnesses has on our eating behaviours and beliefs
  • Explain about ‘immuno-nutrition’
  • Talk you through the best ways to shop for food
  • Teach practical cooking skills and discuss the healthiest cooking methods.

There will be the opportunity for all attendees to cook nutritious, seasonal meals and to eat together, as well as to walk around the beautiful grounds of the Welbeck Estate, where The School of Artisan Food is based. Recipes and other resources will be provided to ensure you’ll be able to use your new cooking skills at home.

This course is designed for people who have had a diagnosis or family history of cancer or a chronic illness (for example diabetes or heart disease) and for others with a keen interest in food and nutrition.

‘What more can I say? I enjoyed the whole experience, the company, the walks, the lectures and the wealth of knowledge gained that had not been given to me by doctors and consultants in order to gain a better quality of life after cancer.’

‘They both put us at ease and made us feel so comfortable.’
