ActiveAte

Fun Interactive Educational Nutrition Programme

Fibro Active is starting a new and exciting nutritional programme starting in January 2021. It has been developed by two friendly and professional nutritionists (Sophie and Rachel)

Most importantly, the program has been created with you in mind.

The programme aims to empower and support those living with Fibromyalgia, and other related health conditions, to achieve healthier food habits and ultimately improve life quality.

The programme will also involve a number of interactive educational sessions, workshops, and the opportunity to have 1:1 coaching sessions.

We are also producing a recipe book, built by members, for members. If you have not yet submitted a recipe, please head over to our Facebook page to contribute!
