Healthy eating on the menu at Hallam

18th April 2016

The health benefits of seaweed and how to make nutritious meals on a budget are just some of the items on the menu at Sheffield Hallam University's 12th annual Nutrition Fair.

Members of the public are invited to come along to the fair on Wednesday 20 April to find out about various aspects of health, diet and lifestyle. Third-year food and nutrition students from the University will be hosting over 20 stalls, providing visitors with up to date nutrition information, tasting opportunities and recipes as well as the chance to win prizes. Topics include how to manage the menopause with nutrition, how 'souper' soup is and making healthy food swaps. The Nutrition Fair is organised by registered nutritionist Anna Hall, who is a senior lecturer at Sheffield Hallam. Anna said: "The Nutrition Fair can help people make sense of the seemingly conflicting advice on diet and health, and help them make sensible decisions about the foods they eat. "Alternatively, it's a great opportunity to just try out some different kinds of food in a fun, family friendly setting. "The students really enjoy the event and it's a fantastic opportunity for visitors to learn more about how good nutrition can positively affect their lives." Last year's event attracted more than 200 visitors and it is hoped this year's fair will prove as popular. Megan Beatson, a student who took part in last year's fair, said: "I think it's really important to do this. Even though you've learnt about nutrition, you must be able to put it into practice, and it really built up my confidence." The Nutrition Fair is free and will be held in Hallam Hall, Owen Building, Arundel Gate between 12 noon and 2pm. For more information visit the website.
