This week is national Nutrition and Hydration Week March 13th – 17th – are you ready to take part in the challenge?
Here in Leeds we have celebrated this week since 2014 and this has enabled our partners across the city to get creative, have fun and importantly raise awareness of the benefits of good nutrition and hydration. For example, innovative display boards have been created in public spaces, events have been themed around the week and organisations have had fun with food, presenting fruit in the shape of small animals.
The founders of Nutrition and Hydration week National Association Care Catering, the Hospital Caterers Association and Patient Safety First have a new challenge!
New for 2017 the challenge we have been set is to raise staff awareness of our own hydration and nutritional requirements! As well as supporting themed events:

Tuesday – Suppertime
Wednesday – Afternoon Tea
Thursday – Thirsty Thursday
Friday – Fruity Friday
