Having kept this blog for over a year now I thought I would have a period of focusing on local matters regarding food and nutrition.

Northamptonshire has a wealth of food producers plus a lovely local food group and one which I have been pleased to get involved with. At the last meeting a new traditional local cheese was introduced and tasted.

Turning to Christmas The British Dietetic Association says ;-

"At Christmas we’re always  surrounded by lots of lovely food and drink. Whilst there is no reason to feel guilty about enjoying yourself, it’s worth remembering that, on average, people gain from one-five lbs (2kg) over Christmas.
Now you know why Santa is such a jolly fellow! But don’t despair, Christmas doesn’t have to be about
overindulgence and ‘unhealthy’ food.

Did you know that people eat their way through about  6,000 calories on Christmas day? That’s about three
times as much as we need".

The BDA fact sheet has lots of helpful tips on eating and drinking over Christmas
