Small Groups Workshops Completed
Thursday, July 10th, 2014
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.
