Supervised by a dietitian, this program equips patients to eat healthily and to prepare balanced meals with the objective to improve their overall quality of life. This workshop consists of theory, practical and tasting sessions.

Laboratory tests are also included in this project which serves not only as a benchmark for the dietitian and the patient during the 2 individual consultations but also as an indicator for the project. Consultations with health professionals are proposed upon referral to ensure proper follow-up. Furthermore, this past year patients had the opportunity to go to supermarkets to learn about food labels.
