Tips for eating well during the festive season

With the kids finishing up the school year and many of us taking a break from work and other commitments, this is the time when many of us get to recharge, spend time with loved ones and enjoy delicious seasonal foods and drinks. 

It can be challenging to stick to our usual routine, especially when we are visiting friends and family, eating out while holidaying or attending parties and functions. 

In light of this, we recently hosted an Eating well for the festive season online webinar. In case you missed it you can view the video below. 

The webinar is presented by Ivan Chan, an accredited practising dietitian who has worked at Diabetes Victoria for the past 10 years. Ivan is an OzDAFNE trained facilitator and runs carbohydrate counting workshops for people living with type 1 diabetes and health professionals. Ivan also works as a community dietitian at EACH, a community health service in Ferntree Gully, a position he has held for more than 15 years.

The webinar discusses:
  • Tips on how to make healthy choices
  • Healthy swaps
  • Portion sizes
