Nutrition and Hydration Week has taken place every March since 2012. In 2021, due to the global pandemic, Nutrition and Hydration Week moved to June in recognition of the pressures that health and social care systems are under at this time.
This year, however, Nutrition & Hydration week is back where it belongs in March Running from the 14th through to the 20th and we have plenty to offer, from hints, tips and recipies to quizzes and more!
The purpose is to bring people together to create energy, focus and fun in order to highlight and educate people on the value of food and drink in maintaining health and well being in health and social care.
Here at Age UK Bolton we are proud to be one of the many organisations supporting and promoting Nutrition and Hydration Week.
The Nutrition and Hydration Week is celebrated nationally and globally to raise awareness on good nutrition and hydration and to bring people together (where possible) to create energy, focus and fun to highlight and educate people on the value of good food and drink in maintain health, wellbeing and quality of life.
Have you or someone you look after recently lost weight without planning to? Has your appetite changed and is now lower than it used to be? Do your clothes, jewellery and shoes feel or look loose? If you answer yes to any of these questions you may not be eating enough.
Eating enough and having a balanced diet can protect you and your loved ones from ill health and if an illness strikes, your body is more equipped to deal with it if you are well nourished and hydrated.
