Healthy eating session now added to All Our Health

Healthy eating session now added to All Our Health

An elearning session on healthy eating has now been added to the All Our Health programme.

Developed by NHS England elearning for healthcare and the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities, the resource is aimed at the general population and healthcare professionals whose role includes supporting people to achieve a healthy balanced diet.

The session has been developed in response to evidence that most people in the UK do not meet government dietary recommendations. The most recent UK National Diet and Nutrition Survey (NDNS) data shows that population intakes of saturated fat, sugar, and salt are above the government recommendations and, on average, adults eat up to 300 more calories than the daily recommended amount required for a healthy body weight.

As a result, and to help the nation improve their diet, the Healthy Eating session aims to support colleagues in:

  • understanding specific activities and interventions that can prevent poor dietary health
  • thinking about the resources and services available in their area that can help people meet government dietary recommendations
  • being aware of where vitamin supplements are recommended at a population level

The elearning also features helpful tools and resources such as the UK’s national food model, the Eatwell Guide and the Healthier Families app.

For more information and to access the resource, please visit the Healthy Eating session within the All Our Health programme.

All Our Health features sessions on a wide range of public health issues including obesity, mental health and wellbeing, dementia, and alcohol. Each bitesize session helps health and care professionals prevent ill health and promote wellbeing as part of their everyday practice.
