What is Enjoy Food?
Enjoying what you eat is one of life’s pleasures. But if you have diabetes, or cook for someone who does, it can be tricky at times. That’s why Diabetes UK has created Enjoy Food, a new guide to help everyone affected by diabetes put the excitement back into cooking and enjoying a healthy diet.
What is Enjoy Food? From your weekly food shop, to serving up a delicious meal at the table, Enjoy Food is full of simple, practical advice for all families on any budget. Divided into two sections, Cook and Eat, it covers what a healthy, balanced diet really is, how to read food labels and addresses myths about food and diabetes.
What is Enjoy Food? In Cook, you’ll find demo videos showing how to make healthier favourites like apple crumble, fish and chips and a tasty breakfast for one. In Eat, we take a look at what’s in season through the winter, ways to spice up your seasoning and cut back on salt, and warming recipes for the winter months. And, people living with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes talk about how the condition affects how they shop, cook and eat.
Who is it for? Enjoy Food is for everyone living with diabetes, their family and friends. Whether you’re newly diagnosed, looking for family-friendly recipes or just in need of healthy mealtime inspiration, we’re here to help you start enjoying food again. We’ve also produced Enjoy Food information in several different languages, including Welsh, Bengali, Urdu and Guajarati. You can order a pack for free by calling
What’s next? Over the next few months we’ll be adding to Enjoy Food – making it bigger, with even more information, tips, recipes and videos. If there’s something you’d like to see in Enjoy Food, or you’ve got any ideas for new recipes, videos and stories – we’d love to hear from you. Get in touch:
