On the 16th March 2020, we will acknowledge the eight annual Nutrition & Hydration Week (N & H Week). The awareness day is celebrated by individuals, organisations and communities and aims to highlight the importance and benefits of healthy nutrition and hydration practises.
Poor nutrition and obesity are all too common in the UK and Ireland. In fact, according to Cancer Research UK, more than 6 in 10 adults are overweight or obese.
This can be backed up by the latest figures from Public Health England. Their findings suggest that only 31% of adults and 8% of teenagers meet the 5 A Day recommendation for fruit and vegetables.
While results from the 2018 Healthy Ireland Survey has found that just 37% of those surveyed eat five or more portions of fruit and vegetables a day, and 34% consume unhealthy foods at least once a day.
So how can you improve your eating and drinking habits?
Nutrition and Hydration Week is available to anyone who wants to join the cause and promote the importance of nutrition and hydration care. Here are a few options:
Global Tea Party: On Wednesday 18th March, event organisers will be asking campaigners to host a ‘Global Tea Party’ in their community or workplace. Use the day as a way to demonstrate your commitment to nutritional care, as well an opportunity to promote ways to improve nutrition and hydration. Click here to access the N & H Week resource web page.
Social media: Follow the official event social media accounts and share your N & H Week achievements with the hashtag #NHWeek.
Commit to the event: Do you want to limit your caffeine intake? Or do you feel that you need to eat more vegetables? Use N & H Week as an opportunity to revaluate your nutritional and water intake by setting yourself realistic goals and track your progress along the way.
