Healthy Eating Week 2019

10th June 2019

British Nutrition Foundation Healthy Eating Week is a dedicated week in the year (10-14th June 2019) to encourage organisations across the UK including workplaces, universities, and schools to focus on healthy eating and drinking, physical activity, and celebrate healthy living.

At the heart of this week are 5 health challenges:

  1. Have breakfast
  2. Have 5-a-day
  3. Drink plenty
  4. Get active
  5. Sleep well – *NEW for 2019

A video introduction to BNF Healthy Eating Week

‘Sleep well’ was introduced this year and resources highlight that getting enough good quality sleep is a key element of healthy lifestyles. Where a poor night’s sleep can make you feel grumpy and irritable, regular lack of sleep can have a negative impact on our dietary choices including higher intakes of calories and fat.

As well as funding research into digestive health, Guts UK provide patient information leaflets to NHS and private medical organisations across the country. The 5th most popular leaflet is Healthy Eating & The Digestive System, which offers insight into how your body uses various foods and introduces you to the way your digestive system works.
