A cook­book with a dif­fer­ence — to help peo­ple gain weight — has been pro­duced by the HSE. Di­eti­tian Dr Sharon Ken­nelly said the recipes in Mak­ing the Most of Every Bite are tar­geted at the 145,000 peo­ple in Ire­land who are mal­nour­ished or at risk of mal­nu­tri­tion.

Rapid, un­planned weight­loss can be detri­men­tal to health. Main­tain­ing a healthy weight can be dif­fi­cult for peo­ple ex­pe­ri­enc­ing con­di­tions such as can­cer, Crohn’s dis­ease or de­men­tia. It can also af­fect older peo­ple liv­ing alone, and those who are un­der­go­ing treat­ment such as ma­jor surgery, chemo­ther­apy or ra­di­a­tion.

HSE pro­fes­sion­als can or­der copies of the book at health­pro­mo­ .Itis im­por­tant that mem­bers of the pu­bic dis­cuss with their doc­tor, nurse or di­eti­tian if this cook­book is ap­pro­pri­ate for them.
