Ask a dietitian

Blasting nutritional myths ….

We had a very enjoyable session with Claire Hanika Advanced dietitian, Head and Neck Oncology from The Macmillan Aftercare and Rehabilitation Service based at the Royal Surrey Hospital on 18/05/23.

Claire led us through the myths and facts associated with healthy eating. Who knew drinking Ribena helps with iron absorption and drinking Coca Cola can increase cholesterol and Diet Coke can reduce cholesterol ? We were delighted to hear a small amount of 70% dark chocolate can be good for you. We had plenty of tea and homemade cake available …. luckily Claire didn’t put us off the delicious home made Victoria Sponge.

Thanks to Claire for taking time out of her busy schedule to share her knowledge.

you can find copies of Claire’s presentation in the resources section on this website. Apologies for the quality …….hopefully we will be able to revive our scanner soon……
