Last Week at Market Harborough WI

Health Kick - Louise MerciecaLots going on at Market Harborough WI’s Monthly Meeting last Wednesday.

Our main event was our speaker, Louise Mercieca of The Health Kick, who came along to talk to us about healthy eating, particularly the importance of trying to reduce sugar in our diets.

Louise, a nutrition expert, explained that sugar is the leading cause of weight gain, 2nd biggest cause of cancer, is linked to Type 2 diabetes, and can lead to bad gut bacteria.

She also pointed out that a healthy diet is not just important for our physical health but also for our mental health as well.     An unhealthy diet can cause changes in our mood, leading to addictive tendencies.   Our self-esteem can be affected.   Also unhealthy eating is thought to have links to memory impairment and dementia.

Everytime a population adopts a Western-style diet it gets sick!

Louise was particularly passionate about ensuring that children learn to develop good eating habits at a very early age.   She told us that one in four five year old children have tooth decay in their milk teeth.   A quarter of children aged 2 to 10 years old are overweight or obese.   She has written a book, especially aimed at children – ‘How Food Shapes Your Child‘:

How-Food-shapes-your child book

 

She went on to explain that it is accepted among many scientists and health professionals that this generation will not live as long as the one before due to lifestyle choices and the associated diseases.

If you would like further information about how to purchase Louise’s  book or help with reversing these alarming trends, Louise can be contacted at The Health Kick as follows:

Trip to Kelmarsh Hall & Gardens – Tuesday, 3rd July 2018.

This trip replaces the ‘Walking with Alpacas’ outing which, unfortunately,  had to be cancelled  due to insufficient numbers.

Instead, we are now meeting at Kelmarsh Hall & Gardens, Northants, on Tuesday, 3rd July 2018 at 11am at the main entrance to the house.   Tickets are priced at £10 each, or £9 for concessions, for entry to House and Gardens.    Just turn up and pay on arrival.  Bring friends along too!

Kibworth House 3 July 2018 trip

The house has recently undergone some renovations.  There are three new spaces – the Basement rooms, with the servant’s bedrooms, bake-house and wine cellar; the Hidden Tunnel used by the servants to move about without being seen; and the Laundry Rooms.  There are interactive displays so you can experience what it was like to live and work in a country house.

We’ll  be stopping for refreshments in the Old Stables Tea Room.  The weather forecast looks great so we should be able to make the most of the lovely gardens too!

More information about the Hall and how to get there can be found on the Kelmarsh Hall website:
