Helping residents with diabetes to choose the right foods and stay healthy

7 November 2018

The North West London Diabetes Transformation Programme is working with the world renowned authors of Carbs and Cals to produce an educational resource specific to the cultural diets of people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups.

The pictorial guide will focus on four cuisines – Arabic, African, Caribbean and South Asian - and will help people living with diabetes to make informed decisions about their food choices. 

The resource will be available for use by February 2019 and delivered as a free mobile app to 3500 people with diabetes in North West London, printed copies will also be made available for distribution through local healthcare professionals.
