When it comes to eating well it is important to eat a healthy, balanced diet that is also sustainable, to help improve not only our health but also the health of the planet. Eating a healthier and more sustainable diet considers a range of factors including nutrition, health and the environment, as well as a balance of foods that are affordable and accessible.
Although there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution, there are some general principles we can follow, both at home and in the workplace.
This course covers:
Module 1: Healthy eating advice - the Eatwell Guide
Module 2: Practical tips for adopting a healthier lifestyle
Module 3: Eating a healthier and more sustainable diet at work
The course starts by reviewing the UK’s healthy eating guidelines, the main food groups and what it means to have a healthy, balanced diet in practice. The second module looks at how to overcome some of the challenges faced in eating well at work including choosing a healthy breakfast, improving snacking at work and healthy lunches. This module also highlights two elements of our lifestyle that research has shown are linked with health: sleep and physical activity. Module 3 focuses on how to make healthier and more sustainable dietary choices at work.
Each module includes a short test, providing you with feedback on your progress. No previous nutrition knowledge is required.
On successful completion of a final assessment, a personalised British Nutrition Foundation certificate will be created (the final assessment may be repeated).
This course will take approximately 60-90 minutes to complete. You can complete the course at your own pace and it does not need to be completed in one sitting - there is no time limit. For example, you could complete the course over three separate lunch breaks.
The information provided within this course is based on Government advice and recommendations in place at the time of course development.
