World Health Day 2017

Every year, World Health Day aims to bring awareness to a specific health concern, while marking the start of the World Health Organization. The theme for World Health Day 2017 is depression, a condition that isn’t discussed nearly as much as it should be. 

Chances are depression has affected you in some way already, as it can affect people of every age, gender and nationality. According to the NHS, most people go through periods of feeling down, but when you’re depressed you feel persistently sad for weeks or months, rather than just a few days.

Eating and living better through cooking

There is a light at the end of the tunnel- depression can be prevented and treated. The goal of World Health Day 2017 is to shed light and help others have a better understanding of what depression is, therefore reducing the negative stigma that is often associated with the condition.

World Health Day 2017 is a day that is near and dear to our hearts, as we aim to create and deliver delicious recipes that make it easy to eat healthy. Did you know that poor mental health is often linked to increased rates of smoking, drug use, obesity and future mental ill health?

Many people suggest that there is a positive link between cooking and depression. Some psychologists claim that cooking helps “ease depression by increasing positive activities, goal-oriented behaviour and curbing procrastination and passivity”. While clinical studies on cooking’s therapeutic effects are hard to come by, many occupational therapists say “cooking classes are particularly widely used in their profession, which seeks to help people with mental or physical disorders maintain their daily living and working skills.”
