October, is World Food Day… are you hungry yet?
This year, the
focus is #ZeroHunger
which has been created by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United
Nations. Here’s what they had to say:
Achieving Zero Hunger is not only about addressing hunger, but also
nourishing people, while nurturing the planet. This year, World Food Day calls
for action across sectors to make healthy and sustainable diets affordable and
accessible to everyone. At the same time, it calls on everyone to start
thinking about what we eat.
But what if your
disability makes it hard to buy and prepare food?
Back in September Ruby Jones wrote a guest blog post about her tips and
tricks for independent living as a disabled person. Within this post she shared
her kitchen gadgets.
The kitchen can be one of the toughest rooms when it comes to
independence as a disabled person due to the countless hazards. Kitchen aids
can be a great way to ease your concerns. Choppers, Nutri Bullets, kettle
tippers and cutlery grips make cooking safer and easier especially if you have
dexterity issues or painful hands.What works for you? How do you cook a meal? Do you use a specific aid or are pre-chopped onions your go-to? We'd love to hear from you in the comments!
