The importance of good nutrition during cancer treatment will be demonstrated to patients by staff and students from City of Wolverhampton College at an event next week.

Students studying for qualifications in professional cookery will be helping their tutors to cook up healthy meals and snacks at a Macmillan Cancer Support physical activity and healthy lifestyles workshop at Molineux Stadium on Monday, June 5.

Delights on offer include a protein-packed chicken and vegetable stir fry, and tasty home-made date and nut snack bars.

Jules Perks, Macmillan’s learning and development manager in the Black Country, said: ‘Having a balanced diet is one of the best choices you can make during and after cancer treatment.  Many people find making this positive choice helps give them back a sense of control. It can also help you feel that you’re doing the best for your health.

“Eating well and keeping to a healthy weight will help you maintain or regain your strength, have more energy and have an increased sense of well-being, so it’s great that students and staff from City of Wolverhampton College will be providing some tips and demonstrations alongside guidance from our Macmillan expert dietician.”

The free event, which will also include sessions on physical activity, anxiety management, personal motivation and coping with fatigue, runs from 9.30am until 3.15pm.  To book a place call 01904 756410 or email
