On the 5th of July the NHS celebrates its 70th Birthday. There is a concerted effort to celebrate this with tea parties and people are meant to contribute the proceeds to an NHS charity of their choice. Diabetes UK perhaps?
The trouble could be the cakes, sandwiches, scones and stuff that is likely to be scoffed along with the tea and coffee.
My practice has been gifted a hamper to celebrate the event.
This is what it contains:
plain and fruit scones
Fudge oat crunch cookies
strawberries and cream shortbread biscuits
If you are having one of these events at your workplace, there are many low carb alternatives you can bring instead.
It is a pity the event didn’t feature something that emphasised good health promotion instead of bad health promotion. Going for a 30 minute walk for instance.
