The Sainsbury’s ‘Waste Less, Save More, Eat Well’ recipe book which I wrote was featured as a case study on the British Dietetic Association’s website during this year’s Dietitians Week highlighting how dietitians ‘Do Prevention’.
Day 3 of the campaign focused on Public Health and Primary Prevention, looking at how registered dietitians work with populations and prevent conditions such as malnutrition, obesity and Type 2 Diabetes developing in the first place.
I enjoyed the opportunity to be involved in Dietitians Week 2018, raising the profile of my profession and also awareness that registered dietitians like myself have a very wide remit in preventing poor health and that we do so through various means. The Sainsbury’s recipe book promotes affordable healthy eating, a key component in improving public health, as well as food waste reduction messages and food safety advice.
Here is a tweet that went out as part of the campaign to the British Dietetic Association’s 20,000 followers:
Big retailers have big reach, so working with them to provide healthy eating and waste reduction advice is a good way to spread important nutritional messages, which is what freelance dietitian @AngelaTella1 did: https://t.co/ZokHlQCGF5 #DietitiandWeek #DietitiansDoPrevention pic.twitter.com/FFKSN6lif0
