FARMERS' market, taste tests, and cookery demonstrations are some of the attractions at the borough's first-ever Healthy Eating Show this weekend.
The event is in Ellesmere Port town centre on Friday and Saturday aims to encourage people to eat healthier food, as well as proving that healthy needn't mean boring.
Businesses, the borough council and organisations have joined forces to organise information stands, displays, stalls, demonstrations and even a Punch and Judy show.
On Saturday a farmers' market will be held alongside Ellesmere Port's main market hall, where farmers from across the region will sell their produce direct to customers.
Throughout both days environmental health officers will be on hand to talk about food safety, and books about cooking and healthy eating will be on display .
Asda is hosting an ethnic food tasting, giving people the chance to sample dishes cooked up by local restaurants, and a competition to identify unusual or exotic fruits and vegetables.
Members of the Roots N' Boots youth allotment project, which sees young and old work together to transform disused land into community gardens, will be on hand to give people tips about growing their own organic produce.
Borough environmental health officer Janet Jackson said: 'As well as encouraging people to take a healthier attitude towards living and eating, we want them to consider where their food comes from and try to choose locally produced foods, so that the environmental impact of transporting food long distances is reduced.'
