Celebrity Chef Jacqueline O’Donnell Launches Good Family Food Facebook Page

Celebrity chef Jacqueline O’Donnell today (11 September) launched an engaging new Facebook page from Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) which focuses on encouraging Scottish families to eat a healthy and balanced diet.

The Good Family Food Facebook page has been launched ahead of the Eat Drink Discover Scotland event (12 – 14 September at the Royal Highland Centre, Edinburgh) which QMS is supporting. The three-day foodie extravaganza is bringing together over 100 exhibitors showcasing top notch Scottish food and drink, a stellar line-up of celebrity chefs and a packed programme of demonstrations, tastings, talks and sampling sessions.

Scotch Lamb PGI will have a major presence at the event including a stand where, to mark the official launch of the page, visitors will be able to enter a competition to win a £100 voucher for one of Jak O’Donnell’s “The Sisters” restaurants in Glasgow. Children at the event will also be able to learn about the journey from farm to fork from QMS’s Health and Education team, and answer questions to win a prize on an interactive wheel.

The new Good Family Food Facebook page is run by QMS’s in-house dietitian and nutritionist, Jennifer Robertson and Jenni Henderson, and offers support and guidance for parents to help encourage healthy food choices for their families by providing top tips and advice for feeding the family.

Along with the expert advice, Good Family Food features tasty, yet simple, nutritious recipes along with food challenges for the whole family to participate in. Parents will also be kept informed of upcoming QMS events and interesting updates on kids’ health. 

Jacqueline O’Donnell, who is one of the celebrity chefs demonstrating at the Eat Drink Discover Scotland event, is passionate about promoting healthy eating to families. She said:

“Using Facebook is a fun yet informative way to get the message across to Scottish families that eating a healthy balanced diet can be easily achieved. By providing delicious recipes and advice, Good Family Food will help busy parents to make sensible food choices.”

Jenni Henderson, QMS Health and Education Executive and nutritionist said: “Good Family Food is an exciting project for us and will be instrumental in encouraging families across Scotland to recognise the benefits of a healthy balanced diet, as well as being a go-to place for parents to source the latest hints, tips and expert advice on healthy eating.”
