Nutrition and Hydration Week, 11th-17th March 2024

Nutrition and Hydration Week is an annual event with a shared objective of focusing to highlight, promote, and celebrate the improvements in the provision of nutrition and hydration.

It has taken place every year since 2012 to highlight and educate people on the value of food and drink in maintaining a person’s health and wellbeing, with some focus areas including:

  • The 10 Key Characteristics for Good Nutritional Care
  • Protected Mealtimes
  • Nutrition Advocates for Health or Social Care Settings
  • The Minimum Standards for Good Nutrition
  • Good Nutrition and Hydration Practices
  • Continued Education for Professionals on Good Nutrition and Hydration

This year our Nutrition and Hydration Lead, Petra Sunkova, lead Solo in joining the global initiative and encouraged all of our employees to share good and positive practice with us. We focused on different parts of nutrition and hydration on each day in keeping with this year’s theme, including the Global Tea Party on Wednesday, 13th March 2024.
