photo of a food and mood display in exeterBlocks to better eating and Food problems? Some solutions

Draw a brick wall on a large sheet of paper and ask people to add to it their 'blocks to healthier eating'. Each person can write their 'block' onto a sheet from a self-stick note pad (one idea per note) and then stick it onto the wall. Have a similar arrangement for 'tips for better eating' on another sheet of paper. Draw a tree and use green self-stick notes for people to write their tips on, and then stick onto the tree as leaves

Good Mood / Bad Mood Food survey

Use two large sheets of paper, draw at the top of one a large ‘smiley’ and on the other a ‘bad mood smiley’. Ask people to list on separate yellow and blue coloured self-stick notes examples of foods that make them feel good and those they associated with feeling bad. They could also add their name to each self-stick note, if they wanted to. The self-stick notes are then stuck to the appropriate sheet, perhaps grouping together those that are similar, rather like a bar chart in a survey.

 Food tasting & voting

Local health food shops and organic food suppliers could be approached to donate fruit and veg, caffeine-free, low sugar, additive-free, wheat or dairy-free foods and drinks to sample. People could record their verdict by placing a traffic-light coloured sticker (red sticker = dislike, orange = undecided, green = like) against each item on a voting chart that lists the food/drink being tested.

Guess the cost of the Mind Meal ingredients

Display a shopping basket containing the ingredients of the Mind Meal and ask people to guess the total cost. Names and contact details together with guesses are listed on a sheet. At the agreed time, the person with the closest guess to the real cost wins. Closest guess to the real cost wins the contents of the basket.
