Small Groups Workshops Completed


BCDF recently completed one of its annual “hands-on” Workshops at the Community Centre, Belle Garden on 29th and 30th April, 2014. The Workshop was entitled “Aim for Healthy Weight, Diabetes Prevention and Control.”

The goals were to:

i) increase awareness about diabetes and its relation to healthy eating and weight control and maintenance within the Tobago East community;

ii) provide lessons on eating healthy for weight control, diabetes prevention, control and management for 40 participants;

iii) motivate participants to make positive, healthy eating behavioural and weight changes.

At the end of the workshop, participants were able to:

i) discuss the relationship among healthy eating, weight control and diabetes;

ii) identify the six Caribbean food groups and discuss the plate method for meal planning;

iii) relate their intention to make healthy eating and behavioural changes.

Participants had their heights and weights taken, and would be followed by BCDF.

Thanks to all who participated.
