After another successful year of activity, the IFNH recently celebrated its 2nd annual Forum. The events theme of ‘Influencing Behaviour Change’ focused on research and development activities the University and partners are undertaking to address the challenge on making improvements to aspects of our food and health systems with the ambition of enhancing nutrition, food security, sustainability and human health.

The 2nd Annual Form explored the wide-ranging outputs from collaborative projects such as encouraging the adoption of technologies and innovations for farmers, encouraging young children to eat vegetables, wearable sensors for people with Parkinson’s and the strategies employed by retailers to help people make healthier food choices. The speakers included a range of academics from across the University as well as Moira Howie, Manager of Nutrition & Health at Waitrose & Partners and Professor Thomas Hill, Chair in Nutrition at Newcastle University.

We took the opportunity to launch our new IFNH video at the Forum, please take a look and tell us what you think!

Many thanks to all those that were able to join us, and we look forward to seeing you at our next Forum on the 28th October 2020.
