Bromley businesses team up with fitness company to inspire healthy eating

News Shopper: Phil the Butcher from J Par & Sons shows off his wares Phil the Butcher from J Par & Sons shows off his wares

A HEALTH revolution is coming to West Wickham with a fitness company teaming up with Bromley businesses to encourage healthy eating.

To inspire more affordable nutrition, Kick Start Fat Loss (KSFL) coach Chris Tuck has got nearby butchers, fishmongers, organic grocers and fruit and veg suppliers on board.

They give members a discount so people can cook from healthy, locally sourced food rather than reaching for processed snacks or diet products.

The businesses are also making videos to educate members on where food comes from, how to choose seasonally, and the best ways to prepare the produce.

Bromley-based companies include Phil the Butcher from J Par & Sons, in Coney Hall Parade, Horton’s Fishmongers, in Beckenham High Street and Market Fresh Wholesale.

Delivery companies Riverfood Organic Veg is also giving a helping hand.

Ms Tuck said: “It’s time for a change, a new generation of classes suitable for all levels that encourage a great community feel.”

Founder Rachel Holmes said she wanted to “get people using local resources with fresh produce instead of filling their trolleys with two for one offers at the supermarket”.

KSFL Club is launching on January 9 at 6.45pm at Beccehamians Rugby Club, in Sparrows Den and January 14 at 10am at Wickham Hall, in Sussex Road.

There's never been any excuse for people not to eat healthy, whole foods. The British public have simply become fat and lazy. They regard cooking proper grub to be a chore that can be avoided via the microwave oven or a phone call to Pizza Hut.

Let's hope the revolution spreads as far as Erith, Swanley, Thamesmead and Dartford.

I'm not holding my breath though.
