A partnership between Diabetes UK and Tefal Actifry is raising money to help people affected by diabetes.
Having a healthy lifestyle and a healthy, balanced diet can help manage all types of diabetes and avoid serious complications. For people who do not have diabetes, managing weight through healthy diet and exercise is the best way of reducing the risk of Type 2 diabetes.
Three out of five cases of Type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed if people take action to maintain a healthy weight, eat well and be active.
From June 2017, Diabetes UK will receive a five per cent donation from selected Tefal Actifrys purchased from HomeandCook.co.uk when using a unique code available to Diabetes UK’s members. The Tefal ActiFry is the UK’s leading low-fat fryer brand, helping to make healthier meals with just one spoonful of oil.
Money saving offers for a new Tefal Actifry purchased from HomeandCook.co.uk will be available exclusively to Diabetes UK members and supporters during June, July and September.
A healthy lifestyle
Diabetes UK’s Head of Prevention, Helen Dickens, said: “Eating a healthy, balanced diet is an essential element of managing all types of diabetes. It is also the best way of lowering your risk of developing Type 2 if you do not have diabetes.
"Diabetes is a serious condition, and if not well managed it can lead to serious, life-threatening complications such as stroke, heart or kidney disease.
“By bringing people and organisations together, such as this partnership with Tefal Actifry, we can do more to support people living with diabetes, prevent Type 2 diabetes, make research breakthroughs, and ultimately find a cure.”
Tefal Actify’s Product Manager, Clementine Duvivier said: “The ActiFry helps prepare delicious meals with just one spoonful of oil for a whole kilogram of food. This means your favourite meals from curry to stir-fry could be healthier cooked in the ActiFry. It’s important for Tefal to promote a healthy lifestyle for our customers whilst they enjoy food they love, which is why we’re delighted to be working with Diabetes UK.”
The funds raised with Tefal Actifry will go towards Diabetes UK’s vital work helping people with diabetes manage the condition, as well as improving the quality of care available to them, and helping to prevent Type 2 diabetes.
