From the 14th – 20th June is the National Nutrition and Hydration week and apetito will be involved in a range of activities to help create awareness about the warning signs of malnutrition and how to find hidden hydration through food.
Over 3 million people in the UK (BDA, Malnutrition fact sheet) are affected by malnutrition and this can lead to malabsorption, muscle loss and poor mobility, more frequent and longer hospitalisation, confusion and feeling generally lethargic. There will also be tips on where to find hidden hydration in food as a lack of fluids can become serious very quickly especially among the elderly.
There will be local radio interviews on Wednesday 16th at 10.00am on Meridian FM 107 and at 10.30am on Burgess Hill Community Radio 103.8 where apetito’s resident dietician will be discussing Nutrition and Hydration in greater detail.
Then on the 17th June all customers will receive a locally sourced bottle of natural mineral water from South Downs Water to celebrate Thirsty Thursday.
