The guide, Eat Well Spend Less, will also be available from Council One Stop Shops and libraries. It has been produced in a partnership between Cornwall Council’s Health Promotion Service and Adult Education Family Learning, Truro and Redruth/Camborne/Pool food banks, and Inclusion Cornwall.

Cornwall Community Foundation sponsored the guide. Oliver Baines, Chief Executive of the Cornwall Community Foundation said: ‘The great message from this book is that we can eat better, stay healthy, and spend less, all at the same time. Many may think that good food costs more. This book proves the opposite.’

Anyone can find the guide online at www.cornwallhealthyweight.org.uk/healthy-eating/eat-well-spend-less-meal-planner. You can also call Health Promotion Service on 01209 310062.

Felicity Owen, Director of Public Health, said: ‘As part of our Winter Wellbeing work, we recognised that eating well is a key factor in preventing avoidable deaths during the cold weather. It will also help people who receive donations from food banks to make best use of them, so they can go further.’

Judith Haycock, Cornwall Council cabinet member for health and adult care, said: ‘This is a great idea anyone can use to plan ahead, eat healthily and save money. I hope that it will get people really thinking about their food, and how much we either waste unnecessarily or don’t really need.’
