Healthy Eating Week 13-17 June 2022

The British Nutrition Foundation’s 10th Healthy Eating Week takes place from 13 - 17 June 2022. The theme this year is, Eat well for you and the planet!

It offers an opportunity to focus on having a healthier and more sustainable diet, demonstrating value and commitment to supporting and promoting health.

By eating healthier you are not only improving the way your body functions, you are also reducing your impact on the planet. In the UK, food attributes one fifth of all Greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), globally it contributes a third (Nourish, 2021).

This Healthy Eating Week consider how you can make your diet healthier for you and the planet by reducing your food waste, buying local, organic and seasonal produce.

Each day has a different focus to help build a nutritious & balanced diet:

Monday: Focus on fibre - for meals and snacks

Tuesday: Get at least 5 fruit and vegetables today

Wednesday: Vary your protein - be more creative 

Thursday: Stay hydrated - fill up from the tap
