Having a slice of the 'good life' in Northern Ireland
Thursday 4 June 2009
Older people in Northern Ireland are set to get a fresh perspective on their diet with the launch of the Good Life Magazine, an exciting new publication that gives nutrition information and advice for over 65s. The magazine includes puzzles, recipes and covers general areas of interest for this age group.
The magazine will include a range of articles – from recipes to real-life, and constipation to competitions – and will feature everything over 65s need to know about their dietary health. It aims to divulge the facts on nutrition including information on salt, saturated fat and practical cooking advice, with additional articles on food hygiene, physical activity and pension credit benefit details.
The Good Life Magazine is the first publication of its kind for this age group in Northern Ireland, where it will be available free of charge through GP surgeries, places of worship and other networking groups.
The magazine is edited by Andrea Marnoch, Head of the Dietary Health Team at Food Standard Agency Northern Ireland. One hundred thousand copies will be printed and sent out across Northern Ireland twice a year.
