SMEF healthy eating and healthy living in Surrey communities

A visit to a community event at the Maybury Centre in Woking about healthy living and eating organised by Surrey Minority Ethnic Forum (SMEF) gave the High Sheriff plenty to contemplate.

Dr Llewelyn met several of the outstanding SMEF team at the event, which included talks, specialist stalls and the opportunity to socialise while trying delicious healthy foods.

She gave a short speech about how, in her role as an NHS doctor working with people who live with diabetes, she is aware of the importance of combining a well-balanced, healthy diet with frequent moderate exercise and incorporating both of these into everyday life.

Dr Llewelyn said: “It is good to get into the habit of three sensible meals a day, with no grazing or snacking on biscuits and sweets, and combine this with walking whenever possible. I always like to say, ‘everything in moderation’.”  

During the three-hour forum, Dr Llewelyn also spoke to Dr Negin Sarafraz-Shekary from Surrey County Council, Councillors Tahir Aziz and Muhammad Ali, and Daman Barma from Dee’s Kitchen.
