Healthy eating does not mean the same for everyone, and for some people it is difficult to change their diet. We will pay attention to this on World Alzheimer’s Day by talking to each other at Buurthuis Mekaer in Strijen about what healthy food means, how you can make healthy choices with small changes, and what choices that can be. Knowing more about healthy eating will make it easier for many people, including young adults, to eat healthy food.
