May 2023, London: With the intent to support Britons’ healthy eating habits, British Nutrition Foundation, a leading nutrition charity in the UK, has announced registration opening of its annual flagship event, Healthy Eating Week. The Week will focus on providing access to free evidence-based resources to workplaces that supports its employees in maintaining a healthy and nutritious diet.
With the cost-of-living crisis continuing to force changes to lifestyles and shopping habits, people have also had to alter their food choices and eliminate certain food groups. This can unfortunately have adverse effect on health in the long run. Hence, this year’s Healthy Eating Week theme is ‘For everyone’ and the workplace resources will offer realistic and adaptable tips and ideas to support everyone in their journey of healthy eating. The suite of resources will comprise information topics such as:
- Focus on fibre
- Get at least 5 A DAY
- Vary your protein
- Stay hydrated
- Reduce food waste
Set to be celebrated between 12-16 June this year, British Nutrition Foundation invites all workplaces across the UK to register and participate in the event. The science-led, age-appropriate resources will serve everyone and will include:
- Hands-on activities
Commenting on the registration commencement, Claire Theobald, Education Services Manager, British Nutrition Foundation said, “Eating healthily contributes to our overall health and wellbeing, and everyone should be able eat healthily, regardless of their financial situation. With the current cost-of-living crisis, it is essential that we come together as a society to ensure everyone can afford to make their lives healthier. We hope the Healthy Eating Week resources will enable individuals and communities to bring a positive effect in their diets and health.”
In addition to registration, interested participants and registrants can also get involved in raising awareness about Healthy Eating Week by:
