New lifestyle and cooking programme significantly helps participants’ health and wellbeing, research shows

All participants in a pilot of Pegasus Health’s new lifestyle and cooking programme in the Pacific community lost body fat – with the majority also improving on key health and wellbeing measures such as lower cholesterol and more social connection. 

Puāwai-Kai is a new Pegasus Health programme Cantabrians can access through their general practitioner or via the website. The free 8-week course includes learnings on looking after your health with food, managing stress, improving sleep and learning how to cook affordable, healthy food with seasonal vegetables and fruit.

Pegasus Health CEO, Mark Liddle, says Puāwai-Kai helps Cantabrians learn how small changes in the way they live can add up to big changes in their health and wellbeing.
