Supporting a diverse Eatwell Guide

The Caroline Walker Trust, in collaboration with Birmingham City Council, is looking for healthcare and education professionals  to support the development of healthy eating resources which celebrate the city’s diversity, support education, and catalyse healthy eating amongst different cultural groups.

The Eatwell Guide is the UK national guidelines on how to eat a healthy balanced diet. The guide was originally made with European diets in mind and did not consider other cultural diets. Therefore, we want to develop eating guidelines and resources for different cultural diets and settings.  Before the resources are designed, we would like to collaborate with various health and education professionals that deliver nutrition and/or healthy eating advice as part of their role so to explore which formats would be the best for the resources.

The first stage of the research will start in June, with small focus groups and structured interviews conducted online by Registered Dietitians, where healthcare and education professionals can share their experiences, opinions, and suggestions on the available resources.

The aim is to gather feedback and recommendations on the best format for the eating guides. We will also explore how balanced diet messages should be communicated to diverse cultural communities.


If you would like to get involved in this research, contact our Project Coordinator, Francesca Straniero (ANutr), with the following information.
