A word from our edi­tor, plus prizes to WIN!

What’s your ear­li­est food mem­ory? Was it bak­ing with Nan or did your par­ents pass on fam­ily recipes? Of­ten I find my­self peel­ing an ap­ple just the way Mum taught me as a lit­tle girl, or mak­ing one of my dad’s fa­mous omelettes.

De­vel­op­ing cook­ing skills at an ear­lier age does far more than equip chil­dren for when it’s fi­nally time to move out. New research sug­gests that con­fi­dent young cooks make health­ier adults, and eat more veg and less fast food later in life. On page 31, we go back to ba­sics with our guide to healthy cook­ing. Use it as a lit­tle healthy in­spi­ra­tion in the kitchen, or pass it on to your chil­dren or even grand­chil­dren.

Speak­ing of in­spi­ra­tion, tell me I’m not the only one who strug­gles to get up and ex­er­cise on cold, win­ter morn­ings! If you feel like your health goals have hit a plateau, turn to page 20 where lead­ing di­eti­tian Susie Bur­rell shares strate­gies to lose ki­los — and keep them off.

We’ve also packed this is­sue with hearty and healthy win­ter meals, so you can en­joy cheesy lasagne, soups and cur­ries that taste good and are good for you!

Plus, if you or some­one in your fam­ily has coeliac dis­ease, don’t miss our pull-out poster guide to a no-fuss, gluten-free kitchen.

En­joy the is­sue!
