Nutrition plays a key role in health maintenance, weight management and chronic disease prevention. Suboptimal dietary patterns can also lead to other detrimental health outcomes. A variety of social, economic, physiological and environmental factors can affect individual dietary behaviours; the built environment is one of them. Eating the right foods can help maintain a healthy weight and avoid certain health problems, but your diet can also affect your concentration, confidence, mood and sense of wellbeing.
In partnership with Cundall, Public Health England, through their One You programme and our research into behavioural economics in cafeterias, have shown that access to healthy food options, enable people to make more informed dietary choices, resulting in a healthy workforce.
