Healthy Sunshine Day Event – November 21st

healthy

There is a health fair called “A Healthy Sunshine Day for Special Children” being held on Saturday November 21st from 12pm to 6pm at the Sunshine Early Stimulation Centre, which is located in Perry Gap, Roebuck Street, St.Michael.  This is being organised by a Lynora Hobbs who is a social work student at the University of West Indies.

The fair aims  to give parents the tools needed to reduce the overall stressful impact that the introduction of Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) can have on family in a fun and interactive environment. Parents can learn not only about the importance of healthy eating for their children but also about specialized diets such as the Gluten Free diet, that can be implemented to reduce symptoms of autism according to various studies

For further information contact Lynora at 622-2038.

Barbados Gluten Free

Cost-U-Less is another large warehouse style supermarket as Price Smart, but there is no membership fee.   Another nice bonus is that you can receive $5 dollar vouchers off your next shop when you spend a certain amount.   It is based in Welches, St. Thomas which is a growing shopping area (and has a small fountain which delights me..!).

Personally, I love the range of vegetables here (they have jalapeno peppers and spring onions that I have not found elsewhere).   The big packs of salad and spinach are great too. They have also started to stock a variety of gluten free products in their bakery section too, which I started to notice is growing.  They have bread, wraps, cookies and cakes.    Their large bags of pecan nuts are the cheapest in town (so far as I have noticed).  Great for making pecan cookies!  I found the warehouse stores…

In Price Smart I found a huge 3lb bag of Flax/Chia seed for a bargain price of $21 (it might be $23…I was too giddy with excitement).  I will be making pancakes and muffins with this.
