Moving into your own space for the first time and making sure you're eating well can be a challenge. SpunOut.ie's Eat Well, Feel Well campaign focuses on helping young people make quick, easy and healthy food to fill and fuel. So it's time to ditch the frozen pizzas and fast food in favour of healthy meals which will help you excel inside and outside the lecture theatre!

Check out our Recipe generator

We have over 50 recipes and videos and you'll be able to choose meals and snacks based on cost, time, feeling and ingredient. These recipes have been created in association with SafeFood.eu and MABS to make sure they are both healthy and cost-friendly.

In partnership with USI, Safe Food and Disney, the Eat Well, Feel Well campaign will aim to get y’all cooking healthy meals and snacks, sharing cooking tips and skills via a series of online videos.

Our deputy director, John Buckley, will be bringing the Disney movie “Ratatouille” to several college campuses during September. The film features a loveable rat making food to the philosophy that “anyone can cook”. The screenings will run along with a healthy eating workshop and sharing of healthy snacks.

Where will we be?

  • IT Sligo - 21st of September
  • Athlone IT - 24th September
  • IADT - 25th September
  • Waterford IT - 29th September
