BNF Healthy Eating Week 10th - 14th June 2019

BNF (British Nutrition Foundation) Healthy Eating Week is a dedicated week in the year to encourage organisations across the UK (including workplaces, universities, and schools) to focus on healthy eating and drinking, and physical activity, and celebrate healthy living.
At the heart of BNF Healthy Eating Week are five health challenges:
       Have breakfast
       Have 5 A DAY
       Drink plenty
       Get active
       Sleep well - NEW for 2019
It is particularly important to promote healthy lifestyles within workplaces as it is not only beneficial to employees but employers too!
Approximately 131 million working days are lost to sickness absence and 200,000 due to insufficient sleep in the UK each year. Additionally, around 1 in 6 employees in the UK currently experience mental health problems.
For more information surrounding healthy eating and lifestyles please visit the NHS Choices and BNF websites:
