"This is an excellent quality video on Nutrition and healthy eating which shows how people can live a healthy lifestyle through difficult times during the pandemic. It's also inviting people to get in contact to share their views on how they are coping. The video addresses the topic of health eating particularly with the BAME community and address the equality in both Urdu and English. We are proud to see organisations like yourself to address the needs of the diverse community and support services who can utilise resources like these".
