CONTENT AND LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Does the Eatwell Guide need a cultural shake up?

Whilst the Eatwell Guide is a fabulous tool to support healthy eating for many, it offers a visual representation of foods consumed primarily by the White British ethnic group. Is this fit for purpose when about 13.8% of the UK population is from a minority ethnic background?
 
Prevalence of diabetes is high among South Asian communities in the UK, with an increased risk of complications such as coronary heart disease and end-stage renal disease. Genetics can be one of the factors, but lifestyle also plays an important role and healthy eating can help reduce the risk of developing these conditions. However, healthy eating advice in the UK is not always culturally competent.
 
We are delighted to welcome Registered Dietitian Fareeha Jay to share her expertise on South Asian diets and the process of developing the South Asian Eatwell Guide as a tool to support her South Asian patients and clients to eat well. 
 
This webinar will explore:
  • The need for developing the South Asian Eatwell Guide 
  • Understanding South Asian foods and how it can help in practice
  • A case study showing how culturally appropriate guidance can have a positive outcome
