Family run cafe helps to encourage healthy eating by opening it doors late during Wimbledon

A Wimbledon cafe is hoping its offering of healthy food will prove popular with late night revellers at this year’s tennis championships.

Lu-Ma is an independent cafe owned by mother and daughter team Lucy and Maria, who are passionate about creating a place where healthy eating is easy – promising no hidden surprises, no dodgy labelling, just honest, real food.

With Wimbledon fast approaching, Lu-Ma will be open late from June 26 to July 16, with a special summer evening supper on June 26 so people can enjoy great food while they enjoy their fix of tennis.

Manager of Lu-Ma Amanda Macnair, 57, said: “Food affects the way you feel and when you feel good on the inside, you look great on the outside.

“We have customers with health problems who have noticed an improvement to their health after becoming more aware of their diet.”

The latest NHS campaign ‘LiveWell’ supports this idea and highlights the impact healthy eating has on fitness levels, promising that even small changes to your daily routine, physical activities, and eating habits can make a big difference to your health and wellbeing.

It can reduce your risk of major illnesses, such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and cancer by up to 50% and lower your risk of early death by up to 30%.
