EyeCan!: Healthy eating and kitchen skills

Our EyeCan! self management programme includes sessions covering healthier eating habits and practical kitchen skills. These are delivered in partnership with Food Heroes.

Food Heroes is a social enterprise run by two specialist dietitians who have over 30 years experience working with both children and adults.

Jenn and Kay from Food Heroes explain the support available to EyeCan! participants:

‘We provide two different sessions as part of the EyeCan! programme. The first session is a one-to-one nutritional assessment with a dietitian, over the phone. In this session, we fully assess your diet and provide you with evidence-based and tailored advice to help you meet all your nutritional needs and support you to follow a healthy, balanced diet.

Evidence suggests that following a healthy diet can support your eye health. Good nutrition is key for both general health and eye health. It helps the body function properly and offers protection against infection.

Our second session is a face-to-face practical cookery session. We’ll teach you how to make some simple, healthy recipes that you can try out again once you’re back at home.

These sessions are also supported by Visibility Scotland’s occupational therapist who will help you to work safely in the kitchen and introduce aids and strategies to maximise your independence when preparing food’.
