MasterChef’s Mary Carney judges Think Big Healthy eating event at UCD
Mary Carney, winner of Masterchef, was in UCD’s Student Centre judging the college’s annual ‘cook-off’. The event was created to drive awareness of how healthy eating can positively benefit mental health and was developed by UCD students with support from Think Big. Over the past few weeks students have been encouraged to submit a variety of healthy eating recipes for inclusion in a cookbook, which will be distributed to new students at the start of the academic year. The cook-off aspect to the project allows students to showcase their recipes with the best recipes making it through to appear in the book. The project received funding and support from Think Big, a programme designed by O2 and Headstrong, the national Centre for youth Mental Health, to ensure young people to do projects in their community that will make a difference to young people’s mental health.
