Apetito dietitians Emily Stuart and Sophia Cornelius
For Malnutrition Awareness Week (6-12th November), Apetito dietitians Emily Stuart and Sophia Cornelius hosted a special podcast all about this year’s theme ‘Ask, Look, Listen’ as well as sharing their top tips on how hospitals can ensure patients are getting the right nutrition.

According to BAPEN research almost half (45%) of people in the UK are at risk of malnutrition on admission to health care settings. Having the right nutrition and hydration is essential to physical wellbeing.

Stuart said: “Malnutrition affects approximately three million people in the UK, despite it being largely preventable. Malnutrition Awareness Week has enormous value in signposting the issue and as a company that has immense expertise within its team, we are keen to share our knowledge and support hospitals dealing with the issue.

“We hope by talking about how the condition affects hospitals and care homes, and by sharing our top tips, we’re able to help those caring for patients who would value guidance on preventing, recognising and treating malnutrition.”
