7th Apr 2022 - 07:00
Nutrition and Hydration Week 2022 (14-20 March) offered a platform for care operators to demonstrate and promote their good practices.

With a theme this year of ‘Reinforce, Focus & Energise’ the week of activities again drew participation from around the UK and further afield. Hundreds of organisations and establishments, including hospitals, care homes and domiciliary care, signed up to take part in the week.

The themes for Nutrition & Hydration Week included:

  • Monday - Breakfasts
  • Tuesday - Suppers
  • Wednesday - Afternoon Tea — Global Afternoon Tea Party
  • Thursday - Hydration
  • Friday – Fruit or Fish
  • Saturday - Smoothies
  • Sunday – Sundaes

Andy Jones, chair of the PSC100 Group, said: “The aim of the global Nutrition and Hydration Week is to reach out to health and social care professionals in clinical, nursing, catering and care situations utilising their expertise to bring you a great campaign you can get on board with in your organisation. With around three million people at risk of malnutrition in the UK we need to engage opportunities to raise the awareness of the risks and promote the good practices that can help prevent malnutrition and dehydration.

“Preventing malnutrition and dehydration improves health and well-being and helps to reduce the burden on the health and social care services in treating and supporting those suffering from under nutrition and dehydration. As the public health environment becomes more challenging with even tighter budget constraints coming into place Nutrition and Hydration Week is one of the most cost-effective health interventions possible.”
