Celebrate World Health Day With These Tasty, Yet Healthy, Dishes

World Health Day - Healthy Food Recipes

World Health Day is just around the corner and come April 7 we’ll all be encouraged to do our bit and think about our own health, the health of others, and all the fantastic work health professionals do in our country.

Over the last 12 months we’ve all been a little more conscious about our own health, and what better way to see in World Health Day than getting in the kitchen and creating a healthy, but incredibly tasty, meal?

World Health Day always leads the discussions in our bingo rooms, from the likes of Swedish Bingo to 90-ball and there will be plenty of people thanking the many nurses up and down the country that play our games in the chat too. To help you make the most of World Health Day though, we’ve scoured the web to uncover some of the very best recipes to enjoy ahead of this special day…
