- Publications produced by the Caroline Walker Trust - content

CWT produce evidence based reports which provide nutritional and practical guidelines to encourage eating well among specific vulnerable population groups. These reports are put together with a multi-disciplinary working group and make a number of recommendations which we think should be adopted locally and nationally to make a real difference to public health. We also produce some training materials to accompany our reports.



Our publications can be downloaded or hard copies can be purchased via Amazon.

Eating well for under 5s in child care


Dr Helen Crawley (2006)

The second edition of Eating well for under 5s in child care sets out evidence for the importance of eating well for under 5s and provides a more detailed and updated rationale for nutrient based standards for this sector.

This report will provide the definitive advice on what eating well means for this age group and provides both nutritional and practical advice to all those who are involved in the early years sector.

The Training Materials which accompany the guidelines provide information for trainers or for individuals who want to find out more about what eating well means and also contains lots of practical advice about how to put eating well into practice.

It also contains a CD-ROM which offers a database of foods and recipes for under-5s, extra menu plans and the training material text.

Eating well at school


Dr Helen Crawley (2005)

In these guidelines, CWT and the National Heart Forum have joined forces to produce a detailed, evidenced based summary of the factors associated with eating well in school, and have updated the 1992 nutrient based standards to reflect new scientific evidence and advice.

These guidelines go further than the original 1992 publication in looking at food and drinks in school across the school day and brings the arguments for an improved school food system up to date.

These guidelines provide background information on the nutritional needs of school children and health issues for this group and provides sources of help and advice on all aspects of school food as well as clear recommendations on measures needed to ensure positive change.

Eating well for looked after children and young people


The Caroline Walker Trust (2001)

These guidelines set out practical and nutritional guidelines to help all those who care for children in residential homes and foster care understand more about eating well for this group.

These guidelines will enable carers, and those who monitor care settings, to ensure that the young people have a nutritionally balanced, varied and tasty diet. It also provides recommendations for linking food knowledge into care and the skills that young people will need when they become independent.

Eating well for older people and older people with dementia: Practical Guide


Helen Crawley and Erica Hocking (2011)

This report and CD Rom outline why eating good food matters for older people and makes suggestions of the types of food and amounts of food that may be appropriate for older people to meet their nutritional needs.

Example menus, meals and snacks are outlined for those who can eat well, those who may require a soft textured diet, a finger food diet or a pureed diet.

The CD Rom contains over a 100 example meals and snacks with recipes and background information.

It is hoped that this will be a useful starting point for all those who support older people and older people with dementia to eat well and the materials can be used and developed by anyone who aims to promote better health in vulnerable older people.

The free PDF version of this guide has 122 pages containing a report, colour pages and illustrations of recipes and guidelines, but ideally the content is best seen in hard copy with the accompanying CD Rom.

Eating well for older people with dementia


VOICES

For too long weight loss and poor nutritional status have been seen as an inevitable consequence of dementia.

Eating well for older people with Dementia challenges that view by showing how a healthy, balanced diet, firmly founded on variety and quality, can help significantly in promoting and implementing the health and quality of life of older people with dementia.  

This work results from the ground-breaking earlier report, Eating well for older people which gave nutritional guidelines for food served in residential and nursing homes and community meals.

These guidelines look more closely at dementia and:
  • how dementia affects the ability to eat

  • examines the role that good nutrition can play in the care of older people with dementia

  • emphasises the importance of organisational commitment to good nutrition and the need for appropriate staff training, and

  • provides practical and nutritional guidelines for residential and nursing homes and others catering for older people with dementia.
