Details
Little Leithers is for parents living in Leith with children under the age of 5 who are in receipt of Best Start Vouchers.

Our aim is to increase families' accessibility to healthier foods with a focus on affordability and improve understanding of the link between food and health.

The project helps introduce new foods to families and aims to encourage healthy eating and cooking at home.

The group sessions support this by teaching basic cooking skills, discussing new recipes and sharing ways to overcome barriers to help achieve a balanced diet on a limited income.

The sessions are planned around the specific needs of the group, considering social skills, literacy, culture and confidence.

For more information, please contact Jo.
