Monday 14th - Sunday 20th June is Nutrition and Hydration Week.
There has never been a more important time to raise awareness of the importance of eating and drinking well in later life.
The aim of the global Nutrition and Hydration Week is to reach out to health and social care professionals in clinical, nursing, catering and care situations utilising their expertise to bring you a great campaign you can get on board with in your organisation.
With around 3 million people at risk of malnutrition in the UK we need to engage opportunities to raise the awareness of the risks and promote the good practices that can help prevent malnutrition and dehydration.
Preventing malnutrition and dehydration improves health and well-being and helps to reduce the burden on the health and social care services in treating and supporting those suffering from under nutrition and dehydration.
As the public health environment becomes more challenging with even tighter budget constraints coming into place Nutrition and Hydration Week is one of the most cost-effective health interventions possible.
